I found this very good, well experienced sidecar rig in Greenwood, Louisiana, about 150 miles from where I live. It is a 2003 Suzuki VL800 with a 2006 Velorex Sidecar. It belonged to the original owner who bought the bike new in 2004, and added the sidecar in 2006. With only 52,000 mile on the clock I figured it was broken in and had proved itself over the years. When I went to see the rig I informed the owner that I had never driven or even ridden in a sidecar. He trusted me enough to let me take it for a test drive (not having a clue what to look for or expect). I departed and returned complete and knowing this was an adventure I had to experience. He made me a fair price and I brought it home. I spent the first week driving it around the neighborhood at 20 to 25 MPH. Right hand turns are a real experience (the sidecar wheel wants to fly – something to do with centrifugal force) for a newbie, but on week two I sucked it up and took it to the highway (actually Farm to Market Roads) and got up to 55. Big grin! Got home safe again. So, I’ve been doing a little maintenance on the rig, riding it more, and the smile is still there and the confidence is building. July 1st. I am scheduled for a Sidecar Driving Class. I am really looking forward to this class and developing new skilled and getting introduced more into the world of weird.
