Nou verstaan ek egter hoekom hulle n anti-swaybar tussen die kar en bike se agter suspensie sit... om te keer dat die bike se gat unload in draai. Moose test !

So the Vis Arende came around. We talked sidecar and did a swap around ride test. The two rides compared well, so I'm very happy with mine.

Very modest comment.   :biggrin:
Seeing the SC in real this SC is very very well build. :deal:
As said we went for a short ride and I must say, for a 1st attempt the rig is more than well setup.  Comparing the ride between the 2 I personally think his rig is a tad better than ours and I contribute it to a better tripple clamp on his.  A little fine tuning on his rig and you will not get a better ride. 

Well done Gerrard, you  (and your people you know  :biggrin:) really impressed me with a fantastic well build rig.  Many happy miles and smiles.  You build a rig that you an Lyn will enjoy for many years to come.   :thumleft:

Ag dankie man. Julle is te gaaf  :3some: Ek waardeer dat julle die kar kom uit-check het. Gee bietjie gemoedsrus. Die probleem met daai voorste stabiliser mount is toe nie 'n train smash nie. Daar is nog 15mm skoon draad dieper in. Net langer bout nodig. Baie verlig.

Forgot to mention, I was pleasantly surprised to see how quick Gerrard learned to ride the rig.    I "risk" my life in letting him ride and I became the monkey in the SC, not to worry, he handled the rig like a pro.     :thumleft: 
Saying that, his rig is so well set up you don't need a pilot license to ride the thing.   :biggrin: :thumleft:

Vandag bietjie pad gevat Jeffreys toe. N2 soontoe ou pad terug. Loopsoosstroop. Eerste ding wat ek bygeleer het is wind weerstand op spoed. Gehou by so 110km/h. Rig is mooi stabiel maar daai windweerstand op die kar eet jou.

Terug deur Van Stadens pas noue ontkoming op links draai gehad en bietjie gekook. Geleer mens moet stadiger die draai ingaan en dan stadig vesnel. Ek het op spoed (aspris) die draai in en toe ek meer spoed moet gee om die draai te hou chicken ek en beland amper in aankomende verkeer.

Maar, enige landing waarvan jy wegstap is n goeie landing  :biggrin: andersins het die rit goed afgeloop en Vroutjie begin dit geniet. Maak allerhande planne vir mods... kragpunt vir haar warm kombers, cupholder  vir haar koffie. Ens

Het jy nie bietjie probeer TRIM met actuator om te help met die wind nie.

Bietjie gespeel met hom maar wind het my steeds getrek. Toe ek spoed verminder het dit beter gegaan. Is maar n compromise

Nee wat, wind is en bly jou vyand.  Daai linkerkant massa bied baie weerstand en as die wind hom ook nog bydam kan jy maar net spoed verlaag of baie fiks en sterk in jou arms wees en teen die drag ry. 


Terug deur Van Stadens pas noue ontkoming op links draai gehad en bietjie gekook. Geleer mens moet stadiger die draai ingaan en dan stadig vesnel.

My 1ste oops was dieselfde akkies, maar ek sien jy leer baie vinnig, jy kom stadiger in die draai en versnel eerder uit, so behou jy beheer met die throttle.   :thumleft:  Maar jy sal later leer, jy kan ook vinnig inkom, moet net nie "uit chicken nie", maar dan moet jy krag op die agterwiel kry (rat of twee af) en klou dat jy k@k.   :lol8:


Ons trip vandag huis toe was baie lekker, wind effe skuins van agter wat die karretjie gestoot het.  Ons het so lekker gery ons het amper aangehou Kokstad toe na ons dogter.   :biggrin:
