Up for Grabs, Needsa Better Description

An option for the Cool Bike, a Cool Sidecar adds another passanger or extra storage to the bike. Normally the rider on the sidecar could just fire on enemies while the driver drives, but there are instances where there are things like Cool Guns mounted on them.

Examples:

  • BIONICLE: the Kaxium V3 consists of bike and sidecar, the latter of which has a Thornax Launcher and both can split from each other.
  • The Big O: Norman's bike's sidecar has a missile launcher.

    • Batman The Movie (1966). After the Penguin steals the Batmobile, Batman and Robin take the Bat-Cycle to Gotham Airport, with Robin riding in a sidecar. As they approach the Bat-Copter, the sidecar detaches a "Go Cart" carrying Robin, which proceeds on its own to the other side of the Bat-Copter. Watch it here, starting at 1:25.

    Surely the ultimate example: in Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, Raven rides around on a bike, the sidecar of which is a NUCLEAR WEAPON. A nuclear weapon keyed to explode if his heart stops beating.

    The sidecar in the Wallace And Gromit short A Close Shave can also double as an airplane.
