Random quote: Driving a sidecar is just like riding a motorcycle, except that it's completely different.

Subject: Am loving my sidecar rig.

This is a big Thank You to Joyce Canfield. In mid May I posted that I had given up two wheeling because of balance problems associated with Parkinson's, and it was killing me to not ride. I asked if a sidecar was an option. Joyce responded and said to contact Vern Goodwin in Lincoln NE, a noted old-timer. He is 135 miles from me. So I called him and had a helpful talk and he referred me to a sidecarist here in Kearney. When I called him, he said it was a coincidence, but just two days before he talked to someone with a '86 Cavalcade with a Califonia car. It had been stored for years with only 1800 miles and was five blocks from my house. Yesterday (after a couple months of putting Humpty together again) I took it to Vern in Lincoln for tweaking of toe-in and lean. I knew it needed to be done, but after he worked his magic, It was like a new beginning.
If Joyce had not responded to my first question, the whole chain of events would not have happened, so I am indebted to her, and hope to meet someday.

Vince, you are very welcome. Why not hop on that rig and make the trip down to the Flint Hills Rally in September. We would love to meet you and check out that great ride. Sidecars are real fun and I've never met I sidecarist I didn't like!
