    Hi, fellow Mainer, Up here near Camden...where are you?

    Tweaking a sidecar for the best handling is a process of trail and error to an extent, but there are general rules of thumb that help get you in the ball park.

    A quite extensive explanation is here:
    3.3 Sidecar connection to motorcycle - Sidecarwiki

    For qualified questions and answers go here:

    If I can help don't hesitate to PM me..
