The sidecar is an excellent way for another person to ride with you. You can use it for another passenger or for holding your stuff. Our 92 year old neighbor had a scooter with one and it was fun to see him zipping down the road. He always used the sidecar to keep the bike steadier. It acted like a large tricycle and kept him from falling.
Here is a vintage hack that looks like it was used in a Charlie Chaplin movie. The actor in the combination is hanging on for dear life and they are probably trying to outrun the police.
It also looks like something from the TV hit show Hogan's Heroes. The actors who played the Germans would many times use one of these to get around. You can almost see some important official being driven to a appointment riding along with a nervous driver making sure he didn't accidentally do something stupid.
If you are looking for a Harley or a Scooter or even a Vespa rig this is one of the best places to find them.

This photo is of an Ural model. It looks in new condition and would attract anyone’s attention. Notice the Aerodynamic nature of the combination. This is made to prevent as much wind resistance as possible. Other names for the sidecar are combination, hack or a rig and I will be using these other names for it throughout this article.
The hack was used a lot during WWII by the Germans, French and the British. The combination made the motorcycle able to handle more rough terrain and carry more gear.
Now you don’t see these as much but they are still popular to many. This page is an excellent place to find what you are looking for.
This isn't a motorcycle but I couldn't resist adding this picture (on another page) of a combination bike. This way you can take your best friend with you during your bikes rides. It looks homemade and attention is given to wind resistance.
The dog looks to be a Border Collie and probably does some running after the bike and when he gets tired can jump in for the ride. This seems like a great idea.
The advantage to having this instead of a trailer would be the ease of keeping track of what is happening. If the dog was being pulled from behind you might miss it if he jumped out to investigate something and you left him.
Dear Motorcycle Sidecar Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
