|1997 Royal Enfield Bullet with Watsonian Monza sidecar.|
|Another angle. The Monza is surprisingly comfortable even|
for a tall adult.
|I think this is the best angle on the Bullet combo. Bullet trials|
interloper in the background.
|Rear fittings with ball joint and rear swan neck.|
|Front fittings, not by the book but seem to work fine.|
At the rally the morning after was spent re-adjusting the chair. Thankfully I had thought to add extra ballast in the form of several massive spanners, adjustables and a two foot long stilson. The handling was improved though still not perfect but the ride home approached enjoyable at times.
Once home more adjustment was possible and on the next test ride I finally got the appeal of sidecarring. When set up properly the bike should run straight on a fixed throttle, steer away from the sidecar on slowing and in to it on acceleration. Riding the outfit feels like a skill worth learning and with satisfaction to be had. Plus it adds a new dimension to motorcycling and provides heart stopping thrills at moped pace speeds..
