Hi Guys, this is my first post here.
I am currently fitting a DJP (Australian made) sidecar to my 2001 Triumph Bonneville.
I am aged 70 so I am looking for ideas/ways to make a sidecar reverse.
Naturally I don't have the strength of a young man so pushing for me is out of the question.
I have tried Australian and British sites but no one has come up with an answer,
So I am hoping you guys have tried something that works.

Please remember I am in Australia so I cant just pop down to a local store and purchase something.

Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan, Others have asked this for their bikes in the past. I think you will find that after you install the sidecar the rig will be quite easy to move around. I am 73 and have a BMW K1200LT W/ Hannigan SC and a BMW K1200RS, also with a Hannigan car. Both can be moved fairly easily on level hard surfaces. I rarely use the reverse on my LT unless on a slope. The Triumph rig should be considerably lighter. Cheers to you too. Dave

Hi Dave, thanks for replying mate. I will no doubt soon find out if I can maneuver it by hand, as yet it's still being fitted out etc.

You should find it fairly easy to back up however you may find that it steers a bit heavy for you. We do make triple tree's to lower the steering effort. These are new from billet and anodized black.

Alan, we had a similar size Harley Sportster combination and too fouind the rig quite easy to move around. You quickly pick up the habit of pulling-up or backing-down to park to minimize the having to push the rig backwards up hill.

Don't you have something better to do than pick at Jay. This is not the place to air your gripes. If you can't be nice we will have to take action.

Thanks mate, I am not looking to alter the Triple Trees just yet but I will certainly bear it in mind as I do know it's somewhat of a common mod.
