Does the sidecar have it's own brake activated by the foot lever? What can you tell us about the manufacturer of the sidecar?

Well, I GOT IT!  and so far I'm loving it.  Been tooling around with the side car - right hand turns are a bit exciting...side car likes to fly and you really have to work to turn- I'm trying to get used to slowing WAY down for those.
Gas mileage, although I haven't done the simple math yet to figure it - is VERY low due to the added sidecar weight.
There are four mounting points that appear to be quite easy to attach/detach the car so I'm probably going to fiddle with that in the next couple weeks to get that off and ride it like a "real" bike lol

Thanks for everyone's input and I'm excited to be part of the Savage family!

Congratulations! Please keep us updated on how the sidecar rig handles, top speed, braking, and your overall experience with it. I've been interested in sidecars for years, and this interest has grown given that my wife can no longer ride as a passenger on a conventional bike anymore due to medical issues. She'd also love bringing our little dog with us on short rides, so I'm really looking forward to hearing about your experiences. Take lots of photos, too!
