Adventure Sidecar

So I've always wanted to ride a sidecar and do adventure riding with one. I love riding quads and I can ride the piss out of a quad but there's no such thing as a dual sport quad yet. So I guess the next best thing is a SIDECAR! I've seen many sidecar rigs on craigslist like KLR650, DR650, Ural, etc... and always wonder man I can bring so much extra shiz with that sidecar haha.

I'd love to try it out sometime but no garage space for that badboy. Maybe I could rent one sometime.

"Give it a try. It's not gonna hurt. Hopefully".



I too have been intrigued and very interested in sidecars.
Hope to own one some day.

I do like the idea of BMW driven and his setup from DMC Sidecars is killer and I'm sure came with a $$$$$ price tag.

I've thought about seeking a hack for my '88 R100GS.
Looks like I could get The Expedition from DMC Sidecars for from $8400 to over $10,000.

HmmmmmÖ..

Do you know that over half the states do allow quads and atv's to be licensed and used on the roads. At least to some degree.
From ---> HERE.

How cool would it be to be able to legally drive your UTV or ride your ATV on the street to connect Forest Service/BLM/state roads and other trails? Well, itís legal to do so in almost half of the United States, and there are a few companies that make street-legal kits for UTVs and ATVs. Todayís UTVs already have most of the required equipment such as mufflers, seat belts, headlights, taillights and brake lights. OHV-friendly states like West Virginia let OHVs travel city streets on the Hatfield-McCoy trail system, and Utah recently passed a law saying UTVs were legal on every street except Interstates (I-15 and I-70) or in Salt Lake City. In fact, most states allow counties and towns to set their own standards, and Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Texas, Minnesota, Wyoming, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, North and South Dakota, Washington, Michigan, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ohio, Vermont, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Colorado (HB15-1054) have laws allowing the street-legalization of OHVs.
There's more at the link.

I believe California is to Nanniefied to allow this to become a law here.

Just found a site "blowing out" sidecars.
In the US even.
For scooters even (my Zuma is calling me)

Safer Wholesale

Looks like about $2K to $3K there.
Free shipping!

Cool that sounds like a good idea to but I would have to take it to a different state to do that and I wouldn't even have a plate. I wonder how that works if you are from out of state.

I heard this is an issue if someone from a state that allows it and comes to California with their plated quad or SXS.

Sold my quad last year after an epic OHV adventure ride but in the future I might get a Raptor 700 if I can find space for it Would still like to try the sidecar
