Guaranteed he was never shown how to ride a rig using the natural characteristics of a sidecar to your advantage rather than fighting them!!

My offer stands to train anyone to ride a sidecar even if they do not buy one from us - for free of course... - just the basics to understand the dynamics etc and to determine if sidecar riding is for them or not. Be warned though you may just like it...

You can listen to him but remember he first scares the cr*p out of you when you get in  :laughing4: then he settles down and teaches  :lol8:
