Location: Mesa AZ.
I live in Mesa have a 1982 Goldwing with a Watsonian Monaco sidecar. Been a resident of AZ for 8 years. See very few to no sidecars here. I ride with the Goldwing Chapter D in Mesa and am the only rig. I do ride with this group : https://www.meetup.com/Road-Rascals/ they are a very active group.
What kind of sidecar do you have ? Maybe we can get together for lunch , can you do weekdays ? Tortilla Flats is a good ride and only 40 miles from Mesa . Doug

I have a few sidecars (!!) and in a month here I have not seen another one on the road!!! Which type of Watsonian do you have? My Watsonian is a Monza on a TBird Sport ... so far I've been to Bartlett lake/Horseshoe dam (on my Ural), today to a car show in Fountain hill. Next Sunday I am going to a HD ride .., not really free on week days: still have to work??????

Is the purpose of the game. Who owns in the end more toys wins?
Get them on the road and enjoy. You have many nice roads and gravel tracks up there once you get out of the towns.

I must touch my nose here: There is a Franken-Jawa waiting for some more work in my shop.
Red Riding Hood wants to smell the flowers.
Not the vulcano ashes and dust.

Damn.... no one told me (at the hospital) that after collecting bikes all my life it was "gauche" to do the same with sidecars!!! And thinking that another one is getting prep at DMC ??????. The one with the most toys dies like the others....

Hello Pelippe,
there is no way to get out of this alive. So take the next best choice.
Go with the boot on!

My parents in law and several good friends showed me that trick respectively short cut.
And if you survive, you will have a lot to tell and brag in front of your buddies during eternity.

Dana,
there seems to be missing a third driven wheel on the Rokon.

That is a Harley TLE luggage rack. Picture is at a Big O in Las Vegas getting a new hack tire on the way back from Griffith Park a couple of years ago.

I will find a sidecar for the Rokon one of these days. I just do not want to pay what they want for a new one.

Dana, you got it right, they do not need to be clean. The use is what is important.
There once was a Rokon version with a hydraulic front wheel drive and 2% positive slip. I always thought about that drive to put on a sidecar wheel.
Good luck to all.
I escaped too much from work today already.
