Custom Workshop & Bike Tips
Why travel by sidecar?


Not your average vehicle, sidecars draw attention and turn heads wherever they go. Although we’re aware that these stunning retro combinations that we very much love –such as the Yeti models designed in France by our "sidecarist" friend Jean Burdet– have yet to really catch on.

<h2>Set off for a solo adventure</h2>

A sidecar attached to a Royal Enfield is the ultimate ally for taking road trips close to home. Equipped with a decent-sized boot, transporting kit has never been easier. With a tent, duvet, luggage, camping extras and supplies, the rack can cope with the kilos and lets adventure-thirsty riders set off solo. It is definitely a practical alternative and much more comfortable than a motorcycle alone. The sidecar is a dream and is also perfect for motorcycle raids on the other side of the world. For example, during our Frozen Ride on <a href="https://www.vintagerides.travel/motorcycle-tour/mongolia/">Royal Enfields tours Mongolia</a> at -30°C across Lake Khövsghöl, our travel companion was like a duck to (frozen) water.

Enjoy unique sensations

Riding with three wheels will pleasantly surprise you, as it feels completely different from what you’re used to. Forget everything you already know. When you ride a sidecar, you have to constantly think about the weight, whether you've got a passenger on board or not. Finding your balance riding in a straight line and taking bends, braking with care and lifting the sidecar when turning right is all a question of gravity. Once you've got the hang of it, riding a sidecar becomes a sort of unique, intense game. When you get a taste for a third wheel, you won't want to stop!

<h2>Sharing is caring</h2>

As a couple or with friends, setting off on a <a href="https://www.vintagerides.travel/">motorcycle tour</a> by sidecar, is a sure-fire authentic adventure full of unforgettable memories. For passengers who are afraid of getting too close to the tarmac when taking winding roads on a motorcycle, the sidecar is a more reassuring option. It's also a great way to test a relationship! Teamwork and communication are essential for taming this rig on the road. The sidecar does not do speed. On a combination, you can take your time to experience the road at nature’s pace. You’re sure to enjoy it, whether you’re riding or going pillion.

Come summer or winter, set off on original Mongolia motorcycle tours by sidecar in the heart of the steppes or over the frozen Lake Khövsghöl.
