Denver, Colorado - City on the Side sidecar tours part 2

Post by DrFaulken » Tue Jul 02, 2019 9:15 am

We spent a Saturday in May riding with Scott Kirkwood and his crew from City on the Side, his Ural touring sidecar company.

We interviewed Scott the following day about how he got started -- selfishly, I was looking for some advice on leaving my own 25+ year career to pursue something I was passionate about, just like Scott.

Our conversation transitioned to a personal tragedy in Scott's life. The Ural became a vehicle, both literally and figuratively, to help Scott turn something horrible into something lovely.

As many of you know, our sidecars are more than just a machine. They can bring joy and inspiration to us, to our passengers, and to onlookers. We have the opportunity to "spread the sunshine" to others who are in need.

Please give this episode a watch, it's just under 12 minutes of your day.

A great video. Thanks for sharing.

At 7:53, I noticed that one of Scott's rigs shares a name with my GU. Neat.

Thanks -- we appreciate it. It was more difficult to produce than anticipated. Lots of feelings.
