Kind of makes you wonder - for these conditions, the definition of "high performance" might be a Ural 2WD. With snow chains on both drive wheels. Do they have enough (electric) power to plug in my Gerbing jacket and gloves? Question Question Question

Damn! Now that's one reason this Canadian wanted a sidecar - 12 month riding season. I'm paying insurance for a whole year, I might as well be able to use it. Although it's been pretty warm here lately with almost no snow... Great photos!

Flint yes their from my area, never met them yet but they sound like South Yorkshire sidcar club members also Federation affiliated.
I was going to join their club but can not get in their clubhouse, too many steps, so decided against joining.

I missed the Dragon rally this year but there's another in May, I'll keep an eye out for them.

Thanks for the info
Keith

PS
Your still mad Laughing Laughing Laughing
