Sidecar operators manual.
...never brake, allways more gas.
I think it depends on the articulation of the side carIf its fixed . . .
How on earth do you stop one at traffic lights and such?!
So given BB's explaination - in theory it could high side uder heavy braking
No on a staight..brake hard, bike pulls to the right, counter with a steer to the left, car lifts and only has to go above the COG to cause a flip. soft springs on the bike and no suspension on the car would also encourage this?Also depending where its attached it could also affect the front or rear braking bias needed.I'm starting to think that sidecars do actually make the bike inherently dangerous
