With encouragement from Bill B. and Bill McS. at the Americade Sidecar Gathering, I finally got around to playing with the adjustable trail on my Bandito. IT WORKS!!! Just like it's supposed to. Can't believe the change in steering force from a small, easy adjustment. It will take a few days of riding with it to recalibrate my steering inputs, but I like it a lot with the lighter steering. Larry - give it a try on your new rig.

Thanks guys, for helping me overcome my own inertia and getting me to try playing with the adjustment.

One more week (give or take a day or two) till Maggie Valley. It's going to be a blast!

Excellent,
Good to meet you at Americade.
Larry can attest first hand the difference the right amount of trail makes.
When I say the right amount, I mean the right amount for each driver.
That's what is nice about the CHS that Hannigan offers. It is adjustable.

You have piqued my curiosity! I will give it a try--maybe at Maggie Valley?

When are you leaving for the Mason-Dixon Line? Question
