Of Side-Cars And Sidekicks

I wonder how many of us here remember, or have seen one, or have taken a ride on the “car side” of the three-wheel contraption ? I remember the last time I saw one was like 50 years ago – I think back then it was kinda chic with the better-off folks.

These machines had proper suspensions for both the side-car, as well as the motorbike itself, with creature comfort taken well into conideration. 

Well, in old war movies, this mode of transportation was popular with the German troops.  The side car of those times usually had a machine gun mounted in front, to take care of any unfriendly encounters.

Am not sure if present-day JPJ (Road Transport Department) approves of this kind of vehicle.   But never mind, let your memories flow….don’t forget to take your doggie along ….
