Great set of photos. I really like the side car shot. I think you have to be very brave riding in there.

Crop the shot of #12 a little & hang it on the wall!

Very nice, good angles. Like the shot of the sidecars keeping a bike a bike, and only using 2 wheels :-)

Love #2. The concentration and what appears to be maybe a little fear or anxiety in the eyes of the sidecar passenger/counterweigh​t makes it a powerful shot IMO.

Imagine the concentration when they missed the corner.
