@3pattes, I don’t give them a choice. I just show up. Sometimes on a solo, sometimes on the sidecar. I don’t really hold anyone up, run tail end charlie mostly (except when I get a clear run on gravel), & have a certain novelty value at present.

I do warn there riders I run different lines & not to follow me if that bothers them. I also warn them where I might struggle.

I know that the other sidecar rider had issues running with solos on seal.

Yes, Takapari Rd is brilliant. But rare to get a clear still day.
