Sidecar motorcycles have reared there head's again in a spike of recent popularity and interest and its easy to see why. Having the capability of sharing the ride with someone else cruising through the open air side by side rather than just on the back is certainly more appealing. Basically two front row seats to the show. This is how sidecar Sundays evolved from a love of sidecar enthusiasts.
The day was started with an impressive turnout at the meeting point of Kawa Cafe in Surry Hills with an array of sidecars from vintage Royal Enfield's, Harley Davidson's, modern Ural's, Gasoline staff and Sydney Cafe Racer members. The plan was to get to Wollombi Tavern for a Beer and good winters pub meal. The heavens opened and the sun shone through making for perfect sidecar riding conditions on the open roads, dirt, winding corners and even flooded crossings.
Plenty of fun was had by all with plenty of shenanigans, sidecars getting up on two wheels, beautiful sunshine, breakdowns and new friends making it a day to remember and one to get everyone excited for the next.
Thanks to all that made the ride happen, all the riders, Organiser Jeremy Hudson and photographer Pete Cagnacci.
