Why you need sidecar & trike operator training
Simply because you want to be safe and enjoy the experience.
You have heard it said that driving a sidecar and or a trike is completely different from riding a bike, but have asked yourself "this looks easy, how hard can it be?" Well it isn’t hard, it is different and that implies that you need to learn new skills. Here are some of the areas to be concerned about.
There are separate techniques for each type of turn. They are not difficult skills but they must be learned as they do not come naturally.
Braking and speed control
Sidecars & trikes are heavier than a motorcycle alone and puts extra strain on the brakes. We instill important things like this in students before they hit the road so they can safely operate there rig in a safe and proper manner. This is not the kind of thing you want to think about as your life is passing in front of your eyes while trying to stop suddenly. You need to learn to think ahead when operating three wheeled rigs. All skills which are taught in sidecar training classes.
It sounds simple, but it takes a while to get used to the idea that your motorcycle is quite a bit wider than it was before. And if this isn't enough, when riding a trike there is other dangers to think about like tracking and objects on the road.
