I'm starting to fall right out with cars and the seeming current campaign to make motoring around the place more and more expensive, particularly with the way they are becoming more and more complicated - thereby extinguishing the local garage bloke with common sense and some spanners and driving us all into the hands of £100 an hour main dealers merchants. The last refuge for cheap transport seems now to be the old Lanny, but they cost a fortune in fuel. So I'm wondering what the crack would be with a bike that has a mini-skip (sidecar) attatched. I'm not planning to put anyone I care about in it, apart from the dog, but using it as a general transport with the added bonus of a container for shopping, moving beehives, taking stuff to the tip, sacks of feed, bags of concrete etc etc which will mean I can bin the car. It would be good if I could a get a live pig in it from time to time as well. So, has anyone ever owned one, borrowed one, stuck a sidecar on an ordinary bike or has any general knowledge about the things? I've got a full bike licence and am not bothered about looking a bit eccentric (cuntish) as long as it is an effective and cheap form of transport. I reckon power would be an issue (I'm quite fat anyway) so something like a 1000 BMW might do the job. I do fancy standing up on the bike shouting 'More fuel for my Panzers'. Any advice gratefully received.
