Time is your friend

I've been riding motorcycle for over 20 years and a sidecar will take some adjustment. Now i couldn't imagine not having one. Just remember to be patient and enjoy the ride cause your passenger sure will. I originally bought and old 1987 GL1200 with sidecar i can take my wife and special needs daughter on trips. They both love it. I will eventually buy a newer bike with sidecar but the old Gold wing is still kicking. Best advice i can give is never ride with an empty sidecar. I usually keep two bags of sand in my sidecar if I don't have a passenger in it.

David, thanks for your submission. For the uninitiated, David keeps 2 sandbags in the sidecar when there's no passenger because it's easy to "fly" the sidecar without some weight in it. Which actually means when you make a right hand turn with the rig the sidecar will actually lift off the ground; sometimes to an alarming height. I personally don't like it so I always have a passenger or other form of weight in it like Dave. Thanks again David.
