Ok. Sidecars are more common than first came to mind. I realized that I did know of some others. Krysta in Milwaukee came to mind, for example. Allen Madding reminded me of a couple of more. Actually, there was an identical comment from Simple Sagacity just previously. This is someone I'm not familiar with, I'm sorry to say. Thank you for reading and commenting!
I had some business about an hour South of home today. On the way back I took a detour through Brownsville. This is the small town where the movie "Stand By Me" was filmed. I was thinking of a sidecar rig I'd seen in this town over several summers. By a really strange coincidence, it was parked in its customary spot today.
More on that in a minute, but first I want to clear up a small point.
One of the reasons given for riding ( driving? ) a sidecar is to deal with snowy conditions. I am a Road Warrior. I don't ride in the wagons. I'm the one out front scouting for bogies. I need a steed that is fast, light, and agile. Out here this is what we use.
Now that we have that settled, back to the sidecar.
First off, I introduced Elvira to the stranger.
I was tempted to wander inside the saloon and converse with the rider for a bit. I'd met him a couple of years ago in an Arby's restaurant in Albany. He had his granddaughter with him. I resisted the trip into the saloon today. I was chilled to the core. Best to keep moving while I was acclimated to the cold.
There's not really a point to this post except for sharing. The coincidence between yesterday's post and seeing this rig today was too great to be mere chance. Bad things would have happened to my Karma if I failed to report it!
Miles and smiles,
