|I spent a little bit of time at the Americade sidecar events in the past few days. Many thanks to Bruce in Pa for organizing the events Saw Roger and Zen Bill, and yes, it's true - Bill does have that new, much better looking muffler on his rig. Says you owe him for it, Ralph.
About 50 rigs showed up at the Friday afternoon sidecar gathering; from the very new and very high performance (Bill's) to the Chinese Ural ripoffs, and practically everything in between.
But the most interesting sidecar I saw this weekend was not at the Americade, but something I saw on a ride today in Bennington Vermont, where their Moosefest is in progress this summer. The mooses have overrun the town:
Ice cream eating moose
even a moose with lipstick and mascara
AND THEN I SAW IT
THE MOOSE WITH A SIDECAR
and he even has a license plate and at least a dual exhaust:
And with that look in his eyes , I'm not going to be the one to question whether or not he qualifies as a high performance model
