Thought I'd start a thread for the sidecar scene - mainly in the South Island since thats where I am (and the North Islanders seem to have a few more people in it) But anyones included of course!
We race whenever the bikes do if you haven't seen us or haven't come out to the track for a watch or a play yet.
Best thing about sidecars you can try before you buy! Come have a go during a lunch break or a practice day, (this applies to anyone, male female whatever, u don't need any prior experience and most of the time we can maybe find some gear to fit you if you don't have leathers/helmet etc.)
Most of us fellas here in South Island are keen as to take people out and get some new people into it. We usually do this during lunch breaks at race meetings - or on Tuesdays/Fridays during practice sessions. Swinging is cheap, a race license is about all you need! if you wanted to come compete and race.. u can get day licenses for 20 bucks or club licenses for cheap as - Come have a go. (you don't need anything to have a go with us to see what its like though)
If any of you, racers or spectators, that come to our club events like King of Levels/King of Ruapuna or haven't been but would be interested then come! and come over to the sidecars and have a go at lunch time.. Kills a few minute, its fun trust me, and maybe you decide to come for a free ride during our races and get into it or maybe even buy your own bike. They are cheap compared to what you guys spend on the 2 wheelers - and if ur just a passenger then its a good way to fill in the gap between races for your class
Couple of photos of my bike as it is now.. shes been in a shed for more than a year and needs a full going over and tidy up. But here are the before shots I guess.. when there is enough of a gap between events I'll tidy it up a bit..
