For Christmas, my wife and I went on a ride around the area and some lakes to look at the sights. We made a short holiday video. Enjoy!
Yep, I bet Ms Everyday Riding's helmet helps to minimize the gawking of folks seeing a sidecar rig out and about on a winter's day :)By the way, I know of another person who rides with ears and tail. She says she keeps extras with her just in case she loses one.Ride on.~Keith
Love it! Tell Ms EDR's she was an awesome co-pilot!! hahaha! Glad you're having tons of fun on the Ural!
Keith: I think you have a typo in your post. I'm sure you meant to say maximize right? :) It is truly incredible how many people stare, honk, and wave with her in the sidecar. One guy nearly hit a lamp post he was staring so much. We don't ride with any spare tiger parts. It'd be an excuse for her to try another animal, and by try, I mean me buying her a new set. ;) Thanks!
Eve: :D I will let her know. It is hard not to have fun when she's around. We have headsets now, so I can hear her giggling when we slide around. ;)
Giggling? I'm afraid if Ms Circle Blue were in the chair there would be screaming rather than giggling in the headsets when the the slippin' and the slidin' thing happened :)As Ms CB watched the video I think she was surprised to see Ms EDR leaning with you in the turns. I think one of her resistances to riding in a sidecar is she'd just sit there. By the way, after viewing the video she did assure me that I didn't have to ever worry about having to buy her ears or tail . . . or, at least not tiger ones. She's from Illinois and wouldn't want anyone thinking she was a Univ. of Missouri fan. I don't know if that goes for other animals, so I may not be out of the woods yet. Of course, I guess I don't have to worry until she gets a helmet LOL.~k
Keith: Slipping and sliding is the fun part. Yup, leaning helps the rig through the corners. They make a bunch of different animals; I'm sure you could find her none she likes after you get her a helmet ;)
