Hey, I realize we all take a lot of pride in our bikes, and sidecars. And personally, I would have a hard time letting someone I do not know very well, ride mine. So for me to ask is well... But, was wondering if anyone is near West Branch, Michigan that would allow for someone to do a Parking lot ride with their motorcycle & sidecar? Thanks in advance, Later-

P.S. Just to set your mind at ease, I may be a newbie to sidecars, but have hundreds of thousands of miles on motorcycles.

I encourage you to take a S/tep class, while you may know how to work the controls sidecars are different, steering inputs are reversed from two wheeled bikes. Here is a link to the national training schedule for the sidecar trike education program. http://evergreenmotorcycletraining.org/sidecar-training/step-nation...
We also offer the book by David Hough "Driving a sidecar outfit" $34.95

Jay is 100% right about the STEP class, if you can find one. In looking for rigs and if you'd consider a Ural, this looks like a smokin' deal.

If it looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures you could buy it, learn on it and sell it for a profit when you want something bigger and faster.

Thank You Jay, It would be nice to take a sidecar class and book, you can never learn to much. Al Olme, $3900 for the bike and sidecar, now that is a great deal. Later-
