    Looks like fun -
    But do we even want to ask what you're carrying around in that bag ?

    What a great job... You will grow to like it more and more as you learn how to drive it, steer it, brake etc.
    At first with ours I went from hating it to just not liking it so it was getting better...:lol3. I love it now.

    May I suggest some tips and and instruction available on http://sidecar.com.

    Great bunch there with alignment tips, driving and braking advise. Worth a look.

    Well good for you, looks to be a first class install.

    Best,
    Rob

    So I bought this SV 650 that I thought I would just flip it but then it came to me...:norton

    I had purchased the Hawk GT with the intention of using as a track day rig but it is just too nice to put on the track.

    Enter the SV, the new track tool... :ricky. Ok, so I'm a little slow sometimes...

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments. Although I have spent the last three months deep in sidecar education, and you can read about the pull to the right on acceleration and when you roll back the throttle you suddenly careen the other way into the oncoming lane.......and then as soon as you get it going straight it starts into a tank slapper that feels like it will tear the rubber of the front rim...wtf. Experiencing it is another thing completely.:-0
    The thing is.....I am happy, riding, learning something new, and totally enjoying something that is at the core, just plain fun.

    Loosened it all up today and made some adjustments.:lol3

    But do we even want to ask what you're carrying around in that bag ?

    The white bag in the sidecar has drugs, money, and Tim Horton donuts to bribe the canadian boarder guards for WHEN i make a run for it.

    PS - Keep the right elbow up.

    EC....I thought the elbow up thing was just for hitting a curve ball. :D
