    Here's a direct link to Hal's 'Sidecar Operator Manual' from 2003:
    https://sidecar.com/hal-kendall-operators-manual/

    "Little has been said about the theory of sidecaring and its operation although many myths and backyard gossip abound. This manual is for those hardy souls who wish to understand their cantankerous machines in greater detail and to those who wish to join our ranks."

    You are right. Learning to ride a sidecar is easy. Sit back in the seat, stretch your legs out and enjoy the ride, while someone else DRIVES the sidecar. Driving the sidecar takes some practice. You can get around pretty well with some practice. It took me a year before I was comfortable with aggressive right hand turns. Well worth the time to learn.
