You're not bolting a sidecar onto that - are you?

Not in this lifetime! I picked up an old 1980 Honda CB650 I'll be hooking up. Blow the clutch on one of those, and who cares? Replacements are everywhere.

Although, there is a priest in England who uses a Speed Triple with a casket-sidecar for funerals. Tremendously popular, I understand...

Have you seen "Stone"? Cringeworthy, but basically good.

Personally I don't beleieve you can put too many wheels on a Honda.

This the Aussie film about biker gangs? Haven't seen it, I'm afraid.

Apparently, the good reverend has expanded his line to include a Harley and a 200 mph capable Hyabusa (for added irony, I suppose...)

Chilling stuff, particularly re child-sized coffins. Liked the FAQ: "Can I do the Ton?" and the Volvo alternative.

And for "Stone" (not to be confused with a US movie of similar title and plot) scroll down half a page to find the article:

"Filmed around scenic Sydney places the movie has pace and speed. The opening part of the movie features a huge motorcycle funeral procession down the Newcastle motorway towards Sydney. All of the people in those scenes were real riders; the sidecar coffin outfit was actually designed by a leading speedway sidecar racer of the time."

BTW I can spell "believe" - when blogs incorporate spell check.
