Sidecars with Sidecars: A Ride with Rémy Martin


Had an awesome day drinking Sidecars and riding around the city with Rémy Martin in honor of National Cognac Day. Seeing the ground fly by inches away at 60mph was an exhilarating experience. Then again, I did have a couple drinks. So maybe it wasn't 60mph, but it makes for a better story.

Did I mention there were no seatbelts? Not that motorcycles are known for their safety, and the driver didn't have one either. Again, good thing I had a couple drinks. Usually my most adventurous thing of the day is not bringing my phone charger to work. I mean, I like to live dangerously.

We didn't crash, I didn't die. The ride was a blast. And my driver was the coolest. They dropped us all off and we headed back inside and celebrated life the only way I know how, alcohol.

Also, big thanks to the riders at Ural Motorcycles for answering all my questions about the sidecars.
