    I would trailer it home. A few years ago a friend who had been riding bikes for decades, got rid of his bike for a nicely setup hack. Unfortunately almost a year into his ownership he somehow (I didnít ask how) he drove it into a ditch and totalled it. He went back to bikes.

    As others have mentioned, driving one is not the same riding.

    Sitting in the throw caution to the wind camp. I got the call that the rig was ready, I got a buddy to give me a ride the 80 miles to Brock's place.
    Here is the first ride. Me as Monkey while Brock gives me some instruction.

    After a bit of practice off to home we headed. Took it easy. Can't say there weren't pucker moments as I acquired sidecar skills but never died LOL
    I am certainly not a Pro and know all there is to know. I have learned, when piloting a Sidecar it is best to remain Humble and be open to learning new skills each and every ride.
    Poor pictures, old tech phone camera, but gives me good memories
