Feels just like a spring morning out there. Sun is up earlier and out later...riding is just around the corner.

I better quit dubbing around and get my KLR pulled back together..

Have a good trip

drop me a line when you return and we will go for a ride...looks like my work schedule(or lack there of) may allow for some extra riding time next month

At first with ours I went from hating it to just not liking it so it was getting better.... I love it now.

May I suggest some tips and and instruction available on http://sidecar.com.

Great bunch there with alignment tips, driving and braking advise. Worth a look.

Well good for you, looks to be a first class install.

Best,
Rob
Thanks everyone for the positive comments. Although I have spent the last three months deep in sidecar education, and you can read about the pull to the right on acceleration and when you roll back the throttle you suddenly careen the other way into the oncoming lane.......and then as soon as you get it going straight it starts into a tank slapper that feels like it will tear the rubber of the front rim...wtf. Experiencing it is another thing completely.:-0
The thing is.....I am happy, riding, learning something new, and totally enjoying something that is at the core, just plain fun.

Loosened it all up today and made some adjustments.

But do we even want to ask what you're carrying around in that bag ?

The white bag in the sidecar has drugs, money, and Tim Horton donuts to bribe the canadian boarder guards for WHEN i make a run for it.

PS - Keep the right elbow up.

EC....I thought the elbow up thing was just for hitting a curve ball.
