sidecar saga

You might recall that I’ve been looking for another mechanic to look over my sidecar setup. I contacted this place the week after I got my bike back and they sounded like they knew what they were talking about, but I was hoping to find someone in the area to take a look at it. That wish did not materialize, so Brian trailered my bike to Middleburg, PA this week. We attempted to take it there a few weeks ago, but the trailer we rented was not quite wide enough to handle my new getup and this was the first opportunity to go there since that time.
They say it’s going to be a couple of weeks. I’m hoping that is accurate because I’d really like to get some riding in before winter (and winter’s going to be here before you know it). The plus side to taking the bike to this place is that they teach sidecar classes. While I am not going to be able to take a class, the owner of the company is going to give me some instruction when we pick the bike up, so I’m sure that will be helpful.

I figure that if I get it back in mid-August, I’ll still have two months of riding left, so that’s better than nothing, I guess.
