Here is a review of a few motorcycle sidecar movies I can recommend.
Bridget & Sidney's Cross- Country Sidecar Adventure...
For their honeymoon Bridget & Sidney take 33 days to ride a dirt bike with a 562 Velorex sidecar over dirt roads from California to the Mississippi river. A great travel movie with lots of country side beauty!!! I purchased this movie when I was thinking about buying a Velorex. You must take this movie with a dose of salt, because they beat the hell out of the sidecar going down dirt roads and broke it a lot. I never had that kind of bad luck with my 562 Velorex sidecar.
URAL Motorcycle Sidecar Movie:The Legend lives II & Sovietski Patrol...
A movie that URAL America made to show the history of the URAL motorcycle and sidecar and how it is made over in Russia. I got this movie after taking a test drive at a Ural dealer in about 1999. I called the Ural American factory out west and they sent me this movie, I have never seen it for sale any place. It is a very interesting movie!!!
Griffith Park Sidecar Rally- by Molly Reeves.
Shows all the motorcycle sidecar outfits at the rally out in California. It was made by a High School girl for a class project, and has no narration, some times you can hear people talking in the back ground but it is hard to tell what their saying and most of the movie is filmed from the motorcycle side so you do not get a real good look at the sidecar, but if you want to see a lot of unique sidecars check out this movie. I purchased mine on e-Bay from the film makers Dad, and you can still find it there occasionally .
A Motorcycle Sidecar Book Review Of: AMERICAN BORDERS By Carla King
In 1995 Carla talks the Ural Motorcycle Sidecar Importer in Washington state into loaning her a new Russian sidecar outfit to travel around the United States borders, zig zaging constantly crossing the border with Canada and Mexico , more so with Canada. And in return she helps Ural to find the problems that need improving on the Ural which are many. Like three new gas tanks that start leaking in the same spot and more serious break downs than I can count, out in the middle of nowhere with many parts falling off as she is riding down the road. And getting help from farmers and a few nasty, sleazy tow truck drivers and meeting a ton of good Samaritans. A lot of the book is about her previous personal relationships with boyfriends and talking about family and friends from her youth growing up in North Carolina and California but the tails of her serious mechanical problems and the interesting characters that she meets while broke down make this a good motorcycle sidecar book to read. But for any one considering purchasing a new URAL you may not want to read about the quality of this bike in 1995 because its reliability has been much improved now.
SIDECAR BOOK REVIEW
THREE WHEELING THROUGH AFRICA
By JAMES C. WILSON
In 1927 Two Americans set off to be the first men to ride across Africa on motorcycle sidecars. At that time, no one had driven any kind of vehicle across Africa. Each man rides a Triumph 5HP 3 speed motorcycle with sidecar loaded with spare parts, cans of gas, food and water. With almost no roads they ride, push their way from military outpost to military outpost.
Through unending sand dunes, dry river beds, and brush with sand spurs so sharp they put dozens of punctures in the tire intertubes so they had to line the inside of the tires with thick leather to stop the sand spur holes. They suffer the heat, sun, and more break downs than I could count, like having to make a piston wrist pin, fix broken spokes, swing arms, wheels, sidecar springs, etc. They lose a very small but important ignition part in the sand and have to go back over the last quarter mile and sift through the sand to find it. They make a forge out of a can and make a soldering iron in the middle of nowhere to fix a leaking gas can with the can still full of gas by using a hot sodering iron. How they managed not to blow themselves up I have no idea. They get in more jams, meet more characters, and have more parties thrown for them!
We get a good background history of Africa and the Tribes they meet as well as the military men in the outposts. In my opinion, the worst part is the many four foot wide mud puddles they had to drink out of with dead animals, bugs, and slime floating in them by boiling the mud slime water and yet they still vomited from the stench and taste. It’s a good book, if you want to read about how Africa was in 1927-1928 and the kind of Sidecar outfits they had way back then.
