Hi Steve,

When I recall my first attempts with a sidecar it makes me thankful to have survived, but, once I got the hang of it, it was great fun!!!

Hope you'll post some pics!

Keith :D

p.s. Congratulations to the bride (and proud parents)!

I sympathise, due to an administrative error, my wedding anniversary coincides with the April Stafford show. Usually I can get away with it if the anniversary falls mid week, but this year I’m buggered!

Yes Keith, my first attempts with the side car found me scraping the muguard along a ràilway bridge, thats why I have a black mudguard now :D.
Carol found herself having to be away for our anniversary a couple of years ago Rob, naturally I perfectly understood. I've got that banked for future use :D :D

Thanks, all went very well. The wedding was at Beaulieu Hotel just outside of Beaulieu itself. Lovely spot and a nice ride if it hadn't been forthe sidecar. :D :D I'll never realy get to grips with them.

The groom Chris from Glasgow looked great kilted up with alot of his friends including his best man similarly attired. :D

Nearly messed up as the route through to the ceremony was through a narrow gate and across a garden. Only just made it through the gate. It looked plenty wide enough before.

In London today near Holland Park.

Some plenty well off people live around here. The house I'm working at belonged to a rich computer guy.
Where I was brought up the backs of our houses is where the back alley ran. In London it's called a mews :D

Hi Steve,
Glad all went well and that the sidecar didn't have it's evil way (It's surprising the difference having a passenger makes) !

BR,
Keith
