Great start and I`m eager to follow this adventure along!
I`m really pleased to read that you`re getting sidecar riding lessons first,and I wish everyone buying their first combo would do....in fact,I think it`s totally reckless for a seller to supply a combo to an untrained person and it should be a condition of sale for both parties concerned.
So...well done to you and may the fun start soon!
P.S. I`m not sure if anyone else is affected by this but due to your photo size it means the writing doesn`t fit on my screen...I have to scroll across and back with each line which is a bit awkward.
