Hey, inmates. I'm pulling the trigger on a 2019 Ural this weekend. I've searched for training programs and have learned that the MSF S/TEP programs in my area only cover trikes and not sidecars. I asked if I could bring my sidecar to class and was told it's not allowed for liability reasons. The instructor told me that I could still enroll in the trike training program, but they won't be addressing sidecar handling. My question is two-fold: First, is it still worth it to take the trike training? I do have my motorcycle endorsement, so I don't need the class to legally ride a sidecar in my state. But, I do want to make sure I learn how to safely pilot the rig. Would I get enough out of the trike training or is it so completely different that I would get very little out of it? Second, are there any sidecar specific training programs in the Midwest--specifically Illinois or Wisconsin--OR are there any MSF rider coaches with sidecar experience who would be willing to work with me? All of my internet searches have come up empty so far. EDIT: I have been reading the yellow Driving A Sidecar Outfit book and watching videos on YouTube. But, it's not the same as hands-on. Thanks in advance!
