Triumph Scrambler sidecar

Here is my new ride! Picked it up today with a big smile on my face!
After many years on the Ural and 1972 BMW, I forgot how it feels to ride a modern bike ! Great power, it brakes well, handles pretty well despite the weight and the engine does not sound like it will collapse any time

I bought the sidecar last friday and it should be installed in the coming days. To follow...

First, some pics of the solo version

Yes, the sidecar will look like a Ural chair, just a bit smaller but same overall shape and style. Should look great.
Pics to follow soon

Good looking bike, love the blacked out engine and rims. Going with Trans Moto?
When you have it all bolted up, I have a great couple of roads in the Laurentians I know about for a shakedown run.

I think the Trans-Moto S-350 would be a great match!

Here it is !
The sidecar is the Bimmer M-102S. They even managed to keep the skid plate despite the mounts. I can show more pics of the mounts if interested.

I was anxious regarding the handling etc because of the stock suspensions but great surprise! No headshake at all, great handling, just need to twickle a bit with the toe-in because it tends to go right a bit on highway but other than that, I'm super happy with the final results !

Yes nice model but I think too small for an adult.

Very, very nice! Congrats!

Now, black out the sidecar wheel to match the bikes wheels and it will look superb. Just my opinion.

Good looking outfit.

Personally reckon the sidecar is OK for an adult, although it does depend on your idea of adult size !

It fascinates me in the many debates about aspects of sidecar outfit construction and performance that rider and passenger sizes are never mentioned. A 200 pound plus rider and equally endowed passenger will have some effect compared to a less weighty couple, especially where the bike's performance capabilities are limited.

Of course, this shouldn't perhaps be seen as a deal breaker, but still a consideration.
