That IS a big hump. What 2-3 more gallons?

What determines which side the rig goes on? Side of road driven on?

The side is determined by national standard (bike aligning with center line). Australia and England are two countries that are opposite to us in the USA. Australia has lots of requirements and regional regulation (costly) differences when registering sidecars.  The tank should be 7.5 to 8 gallons.

It's an attractive setup, desmo. Good work! Post up photos of your travels with it in the Ride Reports section when you get rolling local or long distance.
