    How to combine two sports into one, Boating and motorcycle s anyone.

    Here is an ingenious idea from way back that never caught in. A motorcycle side car that turns into a boat.

    For those with out Facebook here is another link.

    Awesome. Kind of looks cool just as a sidecar too. I'd be using outriggers to stabilize the boat when in the water though.

    Why did the guy wear a coat when riding and make the lady just wear her sweater? Why is he older looking than her?

    We've had about 4 feet of snow since last Friday night. Had some rain on top of it but not enough to melt anything.

    I would have launched The Canterberry Belle by racing down the boat ramp then hitting the brakes at the last second. Whooosh! Of course would have had the pretty lady disembark first before she pranged the scuppers, whatever that means.

    If the Canterberry Belle seems a bit small we could always rig your camper up to float down the Colorado then motor up the Green. We could meet up on the White Rim Trail for lunch.rv-boat-15.jpg

    I'm with tweaker on thought you would know the answer to the second question..... and why would you cover those nice red pants with a big heavy coat when you are sitting behind a windshield?

    I guess the reason we've never seen this setup before, is because all the owners drowned, and the sidecars are rotting on the bottom of the lake.
