There was a fellow in Lexington 20 years ago that had a drive from the sidecar rig. His was based on a 750 Honda automatic. There was nothing where the handlebar would have been. And that's what made it strange for a passenger.
He took me for a short ride , in town, but I guess he wanted to show me how well it went. So it was full throtle, hard charging through turns, more full throtle then hard on the brakes. Get the idea?
But I didn't have a bar to hang on to, just my knees and hands squeezing the gas tank. A short ride was plenty.
