    NEWS FLASH. . . . . . .
    We have confirmed TWO Tech Sessions for the upcoming rally in Corning, a third is pending:

    First session:

    Ever wonder how the weight on your rig is distributed? Carrying too much in the sidecar? Back end heavy? Al Olme has agreed to bring three scales so your rig can be correctly weighed after which he will offer you advice on setting the best weight distribution for your rig and how you use it.

    Second Session:

    ASK THE EXPERT: Claude Stanley of Freedom Sidecars has agreed to offer his expertise and knowledge on any sidecar subject the audience wishes to ask. Starting questions will be: What causes head shake and what steps do you take to eliminate it? What can cause rapid tire wear on the Rear, On the Front? On the Sidecar? How does a anti-sway bar work on a sidecar rig? What is your question for Claude?

    These tech sessions are open to registered rally attendees only.

    The Corning rally is shaping up to offer a lot of activities and ride destinations of interest to all sidecarists. Did you know that the finger lakes area of NY was home to Mark Twain? There are many sites and museums dedicated to him around Corning.

    See you there, last weekend in July.

    NEWS FLASH II...........

    A third Tech Session has been confirmed for the rally.

    Joining Al Olme and Claude Stanley in the line up will be Klaus Hüenecke of EPM Performance.

    Klaus ( the suspension guru) will be speaking on setting up sidecar suspension, selecting the right shocks for your rig, how to know when its time to replace the old shocks and answer all of your questions about getting a better riding/handling rig.

    There are now three outstanding tech sessions planned that will not be repeated in future rallies. These experts are all from the Eastern half of the US and cannot justify the expense and time away from their businesses to travel to a rally out west. Take advantage of this great opportunity to meet and talk with these sidecar experts.

    Rally Location:
    Ferenbaugh Campgrounds
    4248 State Rte 414
    Corning, NY 14830
    call (607) 962-6193 to reserve your camping/RV spot.
    Motels are available in Corning and Painted Post.

    Dates: July 27 - 30, 2017 Thursday thru Sunday morning, Tech sessions will be on Friday and Saturday.
