Now you tell me which of the outfits had the best entertainment factor - the Triumph, or those three wheeled cars?

Outstanding stuff!

Certainly started well and seemed to be holding their own. Do we know where it finished?

I think they really got warmed up a little further in the race it looks.To even run with those modern bikes is something.Just the braking on them is way better then there old Triumph.With some more practice alot of people would be impressed.

The passenger on the old outfit doesn't get to enjoy blood in his urine like the modern outfit passengers do either... eek

They crack the sads if you call 'em that Hugh laughing

I like to tell them that they ride outfits 'cause they are not game to lean a real bike over and that there are two aboard in case they break down of crash at the back of the circuit the bogey man might come. laugh

That is just a beautiful thing...!

I am currently restoring a sidecar that my brother built by himself about 30 years ago which is based on a Dusting chassis. The boat itself is quickly detachable.....hmmm.

For those who have never ridden/driven a chair: they can be enormous fun. Don't knock it till you've tried it!
