last Friday was driving near downtown Vancouver and low and behold spotted a Vstrom with a sidecar on her. WOW...that's pretty cool. Is it anyone who is a member here???

I,ve driven a few sidecar rigs, and built one too, I'd be interested to hear what issues the owner has with handling, as every one I ever drove worked best with shorter travel stiff suspension ,, whick is pretty well opposite of the V strom . I will say I can imagine just how good the strom engine is for pulling a sidecar.

I can see in the picture that the sidecar wheel center is about even with or an inch or two back of the swingarm pivot,, that was my favorite spot , better high speed handling , with a fair bit of sideways scrubbing on tight corners,,, wish I was in Vancouver, I'd hunt it down and get a good look !
