Hate it or love it but sidecars are really something to consider when you are traveling long distance on a motorcycle. Or when you want to bring your dog along and look super cool. Besides the fact that it is totally different to ride with a drifter connected to your bike, it also matters whether you go for a metal or fiberglass construction. Read more about that here.
One of the most famous drifter manufacturers is located in Irbit, Russia, home of Irbitskiy Mototsikletniy Zavod, which literally translates into ‘Irbit Motorcycle Factory’, IMZ is a Russian maker of heavy sidecar motorcycles. We know it as the Ural factory and they have a presence in Redmond, WA. Check them our here.
Also in the state of Washington, in Buckly, you find DMC Sidecars and Motorcycle Accessories. DMC has created their Cargo Sidecar which allows for more than 14 cubic feet (over 28 liters) of storage space and looks pretty cool if you are into these things.
Have a look and please let me know what you think, is this just a fad or are they really making a comeback?
