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 Clapping Clapping Clapping 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


circus moose


hippy moose


even a moose with lipstick and mascara



AND THEN I SAW IT Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation
THE MOOSE WITH A SIDECAR Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation











and he even has a license plate and at least a dual exhaust:


And with that look in his eyes Twisted Evil , I'm not going to be the one to question whether or not he qualifies as a high performance model Cool Cool Cool

That's good...
What are the chances of seeing one of those in the wild?
