Cool Sidecar warranty and service

just wondering about what kind of service is needed on these units. Also does anyone offer an extended warranty on a bike that has had a car added

Well...........I don't know about hacks , but
triking voids BMW warranty.....but some items can be negotiated w/ your dealer.
I tried and no extended warranty offered for trike from the Co's I found............

Sidecars are considered an "accessory" to the motorcycle, unlike a "trike". It is one of many advantages the sidecar has. If you keep your normal "front-end" trail (harder slow speed steering with 3 wheels, though) you can drop off most sidecars quickly. A Hannigan can be dropped off in about 20 minutes. It has quick disconnects for the ABS brakes and power/ signals etc. It is a 4 point mount so those 4 bolts are pulled and your 2 wheelin. And, on this forum there are a lot of sidecarists with much experience with this so hopefully they will type on in! But, once your on 2 wheels service is just that........... who could argue! The brackets that stay with the bike should not pose much problem.
