Flight Sidecar fit for BMW F800GS

FLIGHT-BMW800-SIDE_edited-3Watsonian’s new Flight sidecar is now available to fit the BMW F800GS adventure sport bike.

Designed to suit contemporary motorcycles, the Flight offers plenty of touring potential for adventure seekers.

There is plenty of room for the passenger inside the cockpit, which measures 590mm wide with 1350mm of legroom, and the wrap-around acrylic screen shields them from the elements. The fully upholstered seat tilts forward to reveal a large locker (430mm x 670mm x 450mm), providing 129 litres of luggage capacity.

The sturdy glass fibre body shell is mounted on a specially-developed platform chassis, with a 15” cast alloy wheel and independent hydraulic suspension, for a smooth and stable ride with plenty of grip.

Indicators, tail and stop light are all LEDs, housed in a discreet mounting on the mudguard bracket.

The BMW F800GS has a tubular steel space frame with load-bearing engine, which makes fitting a sidecar difficult, because there are no mounting points for the lower attachment arms. The experienced engineers at Watsonian designed a braced subframe that bolts onto existing mounting points on the adventure sport bike, so the sidecar can be securely attached with the optimum geometry for strength and handling.

This year’s Mike Ellis Memorial Fund ride-out will be held on Sunday 4th September.

Like last year, it will be a relaxed 30-40 mile ride around the North Cotswolds, suitable for riders of most machines. Starting time is usually around 10 am and we aim to arrive at the Watsonian factory, where refreshments will be available, around noon.

It’s friendly and free, although donations to the Mike Ellis Memorial Fund are always gratefully received.

More details will follow nearer the date, but please make a note in your diary so you don’t get double booked. You can find out more about MEMF by clicking the link below.
