my first ride in a sidecar was many years ago, somewhere in southern VA, heading up to Skyline drive and back down the mountain. It was a Yamaha GTS with a proper rig and car tire up front. I tried to help by leaning out on the rights and tucking in on the lefts. Great fun. Could hear me laughing all the way up the mountain and back down. Driver was a guy paralyzed from the waist down. Shifted by a hand lever connected to the shift lever.
