Trivia fact: I got the idea for Strontium's and Niobe's motorcycle with a sidecar while watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
(And yes, when I got to the last panel, I did indeed among others also think about Pulp Fiction.)

Yes, that's the reader-reaction one hopes to achieve with a cliffhanger panel like this! We'll learn about the contents of this box very soon... ;-)

Lirvilas hates that sidecar for some reason...

Now you mention it, I remember when I was a kid & sidecars were more common, some people hated them. Just one of those things, I guess.

I remember hearing about a guy who had a motorbike with sidecar, but had never learned how to ride a bike. He could hardly handle cornering! ;) (You didn't need a motorbike license if you had a sidecar, in those days.)

A detail that I always find a bit crazy about the driving licenses over here is that when you are doing one for a "normal" car, you are also automatically allowed to drive a scooter.
I have such a standard driving license, which means that it would be perfectly legal for me to drive a scooter even though I have never done that before!
Sure, they are restricted to 50 km/h - bit I am pretty sure that, if I'd simply try that out without any preparation, I would very quickly land on the asphalt nevertheless...

Haha! Yeah... I assume riding a scooter would be near enough to riding a bike, but a car is also not a bike... lol
