A Sidecar Really Rounds Out a Motorcycle’s Storage Capability
Perfect for a spare tire and a friedly pup.
While on a work trip to Puebla, Mexico, I spent my off-hours eating phenomenal mole-slathered foods and roaming the roads of the colorful city. Although I was overwhelmed in the best way by the beautiful architecture, the vibrant squares, and the bustling markets, some of the vehicles were still catching my attention. Amidst the classic Volkswagens that swarm their streets, I noticed a motorcycle with a sidecar, a vehicular feature that will always spur me to bust out the camera. As displayed on the bike’s parts, this is a Dinamo S-Car.

Dinamo is a company that sells several types of motorcycles and similar vehicles in Mexico. This S-Car is claimed to be a 200-cc bike with a top speed of about 50 mph. It’s designed to seat two people and can support more than 400 pounds.
This is one of the more interesting sidecars I’ve seen for the simple reason that it’s so open. Often, sidecars encapsulate the rider in a bullet-like sheath with the legs stretching out in a covered space. This design is much more open, almost like it’s a box with a chair in it or a rollercoaster cart. Either way, sidecars slightly limit the experience of riding a motorcycle, but they make up for that with extra storage space, including a perfect place for a spare tire. Plus, if you’re a pet person, it’s a great way to take your pup for a ride.
