Hi Guys,
I just bought the BMW side car rig that was listed in the flea market this past week. Wondering if any of y'all were within a couple of hours of Clifton Forge VA? Looking for some help and advice with riding it and making sure its set up properly.
Thanks,
Fred

Some good literature here on riding & set-up.

If you can make it to this event it would be cool:
SUMMIT POINT SIDECAR RON DEE VOO
.Get the word out!
Summit Point Raceway is an excellent venue and the folks there are great. A little history here. We began the ISOK back years ago when I was laid up from a motorcycle accident. In time we put on a rally called the RON DEE VOO. This was done for 5 years in a row and one year it was the largest sidecar rally in in the country. It was not totally informal but close. What you see below culminated through discussions with Bruce Stephens and Bill Ballou after we had had a few small get togethers down at Summit Point raceway. Take a look at what Bruce has written and by all means make plans to attend . If you don't have a great time at this event it is your fault. LOL Seriously lets SPREAD THE WORD .... LETS WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS ALL IT CAN BE !!!!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
June 27 – 28, 2015 – Sidecar Racers Association East. Summit Point Raceway, West Virginia - CCS. For more info see www.sidecarracers.com .
PLUS.........
June 27 - 28, 2015 – Summit Point Sidecar RON DEE VOO. A number of members of the Internet Sidecar Owners Klub, the High Performance Sidecar Club, the United Sidecar Association, Adventure Rider, and others, have attended this event in the past, first as an organized event known as the ISOK Ron-Dee-Voo, and most recently as an unorganized gathering of like minded sidecarists. It has been a lot of fun to say the least. In the past, some have camped or RV’ed at the race track and some have stayed at the Econo Lodge Motel http://www.econolodge.com/hotel-winc...a-VA226… and others in Winchester, Virginia and the surrounding towns.


Members attending have been known to arrive Friday afternoon and leave Monday morning. This is not an organized official rally of any sort, it is just an opportunity to have a good time hanging out with a bunch of sidecar people and support the sidecar racers and what they do. If you have never seen sidecar racing, you’re in for a real treat. If the conditions are favorable, the street legal sidecars have been given the opportunity to do a parade lap on the track as well.

Some sidecarists even come earlier and stay later to take in the attractions in the area. For example visiting the historic areas of Charles Town, WV https://www.google.com/search…... , Harpers Ferry, WV https://www.google.com/search…... , Front Royal, VA http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...ties-Fr…... , etc.

Some scenic drives in the area are: http://dc.about.com/od/daytripsgetaw...ylineDrive.htm , http://dc.about.com/…/walking…/tp/Vi...nic-Drives.htm , http://www.motorcycleroads.com/Route...ginia_124.html , http://www.motorcycleroads.com/Routes/Virginia_122.html .

Fred, There is a 3 wheel class at CVCC in Lynchburg this weekend. Would be great if you could take it. I'm in Roanoke, But Bill Draper in Martiansville would be the man to talk to. My email is Virginiapi@cox.net.
