Wing + California SC, + trailer, anyone do it?
I have a '93 1500 Wing, with a California FS sidecar (not on the road as yet). Now, right now I have an 1100 Yamaha with trailer. I bought the Wing with sidecar to give me added stability and comfort to my passenger, as I'm getting older (no health issues yet, I am 71). The sidecar has oodles of room for "stuff" (suitcases, BBQ, beach stuff , etc.), as I don't plan on riding with a passenger in it. Now, I love the trailer as well, (plan on selling the 1100), lots of room in the trailer.
My question to sidecar owners is, would you recommend keeping the trailer (23 CF), or stuffing the car? Would towing a full trailer with the empty car affect the handling of the bike, or would it be better to ditch the trailer too and load up the car?
This pic is essentially the same as my bike/car.
Thoughts and/or advice is always welcome.
