You want to talk to Bill (his screen name is "sidecarsrfun" here on the forum) He has one and I rode it. With that power you have to pay attention as it moves left or right depending on the throttle. Of course when he gave me a ride I couldn't feel that ;)
Cheers

The kle was her UpSideDown ride fr700.
Me thinks the blackbird has way to much power for the dirt .
It is Like riding behind a shotgun.It spits out a lot of rocks .


Cheers Ian

Cheers Ian. Good to see your wife riding her beautiful ST.

Following the Blackbird would be about the same as a WRC on the dirt.
Lord almighty that thing is gonna be fun ... WooHoo !

Hard enough keeping the harley or bm' in a straight line. Just way too much fun


Have fun.

Hi Guys,
Seting it up for the back roads (dirt) is an interesting challenge may have to put a limiter on the throttle....
I have raised the beast around 50mm all round. handles very well...

Time for trailer on rear and see how it rides...
