Hey,......for you un-informed on sidecar racing, it does not need seat padding you ride it in a kneeling position.....and yes, it is build to go fast around corners............

Will you be at Miller ....Bones....hope to see you there!!!!!

Very cool machine! Is the BMW engine chosen for the low CG, or is it required of the class? Best of luck  :-D

Hey Bob

  Yes I will be at Miller.
  We will have my mates Vincent at BMST, maybe I can have a few laps on it.
  How about that ride-- maybe saturday in the taxi ride session.
  I would love to do a few laps--- even slow ones
