A Bit About Me – Creator of Haul N Ride and Ability Motorcycles


As a Motorcycle Driving Instructor I helped many students learn to ride safely and obtain a licence.

I share my safety tips, advice and instruction on Haul N Ride.

Insider Secrets – From a Motorcycle Driving Instructor

Dave Haul N Ride

 

MISSION: To assist people to enjoy riding a motorcycle either as a passenger or rider and to share the many unusual and practical motorcycle inventions, either on-road, off-road, on-the-water or in-the-air. Dave

 

Having a daughter in a wheelchair and investigating options to include her in family rides, I discovered Wheelchair Accessible Sidecars are the most affordable option.

 

I built my daughter a wheelchair accessible sidecar.

 

I wanted to share my build on the Internet to inspire and help others in a similar situation.

 

Over time the website just grew into one of the Internets most interesting websites with very unusual creations and inventions.

 

One of the most simple modifications is the Leaner Sidecar. I first discovered via

Kalich Leaner Sidecars.

 

Motorcycles are Designed to Lean – To Lean is Safer


Β I would love to create, perhaps the world’s first, Wheelchair Accessible Leaner Sidecar.

  1. Thanks for you comment Shahn, I would love some photos of your ride, If you would like to share with Haul N Ride πŸ™‚ By saying Victorian sidecar, does that mean it was made in Victoria, British Columbia?
    Your jewellery is amazing, you are so gifted.
    I wonder if when your leaner is pushing to the right on deceleration could be due to incorrect Toe-in alignment?
    Another idea, how far is your wheel lead?
    I imagine if a sidecar axle and motorcycle rear axle are were in line, this could be an issue. So depending on the wheel lead measurement, may alter its stability on deceleration.
    Like with any sidecar combination, there is always a need to make finer adjustments.
    How old is your sidecar? Did you build it yourself?
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Dave
      Thanks for the reply, Victoria Leaner Sidecar is the search term to find the YouTube video of me driving down the street and showing the pivots in action.
      I use the sidecar for work, I did not want a rigid unit and destroy my ridding experience.
      The position of the wheel is not the same as a rigid sidecar, the toe in and camber in this case are also not the same, there actually is none.
      When the bike is on a level flat surface and perfectly upright the sidecar is in line, otherwise the sidecar is in either headed into a left or right turn position. The geometry of the mounts steer the sidecar as you lean, if I straddle the bike and lean left and then right the sidecar arcs left and right.
      It was an experiment building it and a little of a head scratch as I set it up with the bike on it’s side stand, good thing I thought it through prior to welding?.
      On acceleration depending on the road angle of course the sidecar has weight so it pulls, also it is a Box so wind resistance also could play into that. The push left on deceleration is also the weight of the sidecar, if it had a brake proportioned off the rear of the bike that could be taken care of.
      In my application going to the market it is awesome and serves it’s purpose at the same time as being a lot of fun.
      There are a few pictures here http://steelwheels4x4.info/-/steelwheels4x4/gallery.asp?cat=148863&pID=1&row=15 of the unit set up for sales of my jewellery.
      Cheers

      1. Hi Shahn, now I realize that I was showing your motorcycle video on this Webpage:
        https://haulnride.com/leaner-sidecar-combination-bike-leans-sidecar-doesnt
        It is such a useful video to help potential builders understand the Pivots.
        I absolutely love your business/sidecar setup and umbrellas.
        I find it very interesting that you do not have toe-in.

        It sounds like a good idea to add a sidecar brake and I think a Proportioning Valve would be useful between the sidecar rear brake cylinder and the sidecar brake.
        The Proportional Valve may allow you to make fine adjustments to control the weight on acceleration/deceleration.
        Thank you for sharing your story and photos with Haul N Ride.
        Have an aweswome day. Dave

  2. Beautiful web page, very nicely put together. I am the owner operator builder of the Victoria Leaner Sidecar. I use it at Bastion Square Public Market in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada every summer to transport display and sell my Custom Hand Crafted Sterling and Stainless jewelry that I build. May 3, 2018 Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through til the end of September 2018 , 11AM til 5 PM come and have a look. http://www.Etsy.com/shop/AboutTine
    The bike is awesome to ride, lane changes either way left or right happen in the blink of an eye. The bike pulls right on acceleration but if you throttle hard and fast you don’t have to care. On deceleration it pushes the bike right so you have to counter steer, no big deal as long as you are paying attention. Sincerely
    Shahn Torontow

  3. Hi Julia, if a person is wheelchair bound, it doesn’t take long to realize how non accessible this world can be. Likewise if you are the parent or carer of that person, you also become aware and want to change whatever you can to improve their circumstance and promote inclusion.

    It was a very difficult journey that few have traveled to complete the accessible sidecar project, but I can’t begin to explain how much it was worth it.

    If you have the time, take a look at the photos and you will see by the smile on my daughter’s face, it was worth it πŸ™‚

    Thank you for your kind comments. Have an amazing day. Dave

  4. Wow, I absolutely love it! I can’t say that I am a motorcycle enthusiast, but I love everything unusual and creative thinking. I like the idea of full inclusion. Who said that people using wheelchair can’t ride a motorbike? Why not? Dave @ Haul N Ride and friends will prove them wrong! Such sidecar hasn’t been built yet – Dave @ Haul N Ride and like-minded people will build it! I love such attitude, I love such project. I love unstoppable people when the intention is so pure and end-result is invaluable. What can be more precious than a family time together – no matter what limitations members may have? This is an excellent project! And all other unusual motorbike models seem like a lot of fun. πŸ™‚
