From the Ride Journal YouTube channel:

Mike Schmidt is no stranger sidecars – he started riding them in his teens and he hasn’t stopped since.

He’s also no stranger to the Yamaha VMAX, having owned and ridden one in his native Germany.

Now living in Australia, a 1995 Yamaha VMAX sidecar presented itself, and served as the perfect workhorse for Mike’s growing business, MotoLoom, as well being a weekend thrill.
