Spoils the SE for what it is ???
Sidecars are there for BM`s and Triumphs and other boring scoots :lol8:

ja look, I love the look of a Ural sidecar, or these conversions being done on 1150GS & later models, but this...

this is just so wrong on so many levels  :imaposer:

+1 I've seen a sidecar on a 990 adv and thought THAT was a waste; this is just a travesty.

Kinda reminds me of this...

Those are leading link (not trailing link) forks. It's an old design that tries to separate the suspension function from the steering and brake reaction.
Engineers have argued for years that telescopic forks are 'wrong' in that the suspension is compromised by having to handle both steering and brake torque reaction, which is why there have been numerous attempts to design a viable hub centre steering system. Leading links and trailing links are a partial solution, as is the BMW telelever design.
However, despite being an engineering abortion, conventional 'tele's ' have served well in practice for around 70 years because of their advantage in terms of simplicity, weight and cost.

no that you explain this so nicely, I wonder if there is another photo from maybe a different angle, because to me that suspension setup leans itsself towards having a possible driveshaft towards the front wheel as well.

I'm sure it can be done, and should work well on an off-road biased side car setup.

it is also possibly the only thing can keep the front wheel of a 950 SE planted on the ground.
