Killer sidecars, Fred! The snow makes me homesick for Pennsylvania.
I appreciate all your suggestions and comments. After some serious thought, I'm going to wait until my 3-year-old grandson gets a little bigger...maybe 5 or so. By that time, I'll have a 2-seater and we can go 'peddin' together. Meantime, we'll talk about holding on, helmets, and safe riding as a passenger. Problem solved. Thanks again.
Took a spin around the neighborhood tonight about 8 and got chased by a big ass dog. I was on my second lap and he was waiting for me. (Or maybe his owner was ticked at the noise from my Biturbo pipe and set me up?) First the mongrel ran in front of me. I braked just a bit till he was clear, then I hit the gas. He almost had me, though. This bike doesn't take off like my old scooter.
I used to ride a Yamaha XC180 a few years back. It was my main form of transportation for about a year, and I never had any problems with dogs. First time for everything, right?
