Sidecars may not be for everyone but they're much more fun than sitting in a tin box. Each year I take my BMW R850R outfit to the Stella Alpine Rally.
I travel down through France at a steady pace using few motorways to relax and take in the sites. No Hotels just wild camping.
My Jody and I had two weeks around the Alps, three days in Monoco and four days at a French sidecar rally in Gouzon with great camaraderie from the F.S.C.C.
