I have seen several people on here talk about riding 2-up and pulling a trailer made from a Sears & Roebuck lawnmower hauling trailer and a turtle shell like you see on top of mini-vans. I am thinking the trailer with gear probably weighed 250-300 lbs, plus the weigh of the second rider (150-200lbs). If they could do it, the side car couldn't be any worse. It would be interesting to see how you attach it to the frame. I assume there is a hinge point or something? Anyway, good luck dude!
My trailer weighs approx 170 lbs, empty. Load it up, 2 weeks worth of gear and the cooler full, picknic hamper, additional riding gear etc, i would estimate close to 300 lbs. Riding 2 up , another 300 lbs plus a 641 lb bike ..... 3000 to 9041 ft above sea level in the mountains, yeh, it can do it easily.
Would i travel at 80 miles an hour, no way, but 65 mph will do me fine all day.
I dont know how much a sidecar would weigh, cant imagine it would be more than 250lbs.
As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said
