OK, so doubltless the 'old timers' will chuckle, but;
I've got a 1956 Panther with chair in the UK, and ride it bolt upright, never move in the saddle, never have any issues with left hand bends (remember it's RHD, so chair on the left) (I've got a 1960 Dnepr too, but it's slow slow that all bends are straight!)
Out here in Qatar I've got a Ural Retro, much lighter on the chair, and smaller wheels, so closer to the ground, and LHD drive, so chair on the right.
If I exit a roundabout with any speed, that's on a right hand turn, the chair goes light and the buttocks start to clench. I thought about 50kg of sand in the chair, but then started to shift my weight over the chair on right handers.
Two things happen, the chair is less inclined to fly, and as you unweight the rear wheel, by shifting weight to the sidecar wheel, the back end slips round, helping to complete the turn.
Do other inmates do this?
