I love cycling so the bike remains top of the list but I was also a keen motorcyclist in my youth. The fun really started when I bolted a sidecar to my Honda. To some people it would be the worst of both worlds; you lose the agility of two wheels and don't have the weather protection of a car. However, once over the initial "training" period the motorcycle/sidecar combination was great fun to pilot!

Naaah, I couldn't afford the upkeep. But it'd be fun to test drive!

But lately I've got to thinking... that with all of the meds I'm on, i'm not even sure if I could pass a Class 3... so I'm thinking for the type of flying I like to do - just buzzing around, boring holes in the sky - I could get by with a E-LSA or ultralight. Maybe one of the old-school Quicksilver MX or similar.
