I ride an 09 Triumph T100 w/Velorex sidecar. The T 100 is an excellent tug and is more than capable of running at 65 to 70 mph on the interstate all day long though it's much more comfortable and relaxing to run two lane highways at 55 to 60. Take time to watch the scenery! I average around 38 to 40 mpg at two lane highway speeds. In town, I get around 30 to 35 mpg depending on how heavy handed I am when accelerating away from stops. Steering is a little heavy with stock front end so I'm planning on adding a triple-tree to make steering easier. Us old guys in our 70's don't have quite the upper body strength we used to have!

Frankly, I'm having more fun than I've had in years.

What ever sidecar you go with make sure you are not using "universal" type mounts as they tend to not work all that well. I also recommend figuring into the budget triple tree's to lower the steering effort.
No idea how many Bonneville's we have done, if I had to guess it would be in the 40-50 range plus supplied mounting hardware and triple tree's for many more.
