    "If anyone is thinking of getting a Russian combo, check out if it has a powered sidecar wheel - If so they cannot be switched over to the left of the bike - Which is a current legal requirement in the UK."

    This had been nagging at me, so I looked it up. The more expensive models have what they call a "Drive Assist" for the side car. I suspect this works something like the differential lock on a farm tractor, but they dont' give a lot of information.
    I tried to look up a site for the UK, but they don't seperate it from the rest of Europe. I looked up Austrailia, however, and they have the side care on the opposite side from North America, so there's obviously a way to do that.
    Interestingly, in typical Russian fashion, you can buy the motorcycle as a solo, with no sidecar, but it still has a reverse gear--only 4 speeds forward.
