It was 56 degrees near me. Got in a 75 mile ride. Not bad for Pennsylvania on New Year's Day!

I got out today as well, but we lucked out with a windy mid-50s day. I so would have stayed home rather to endure what you did. I rode in the upper teens a few times when I was younger, but no more.

How do the mechanics of a sidecar work? Does the engine turn the wheels on the sidecar or is the only wheel powering the bike the rear wheel on the bike itself?

Rear bike is the only powered one. Set ups like Ural are not really meany to ride they are 45-50 mph rigs. Sidecar Rig handles nothing like a motorcycle

Did a little over 100 miles today. Road to Mt. Joy PA American Legion for a benefit ride. Temps were in the low 50s.
