Oh yes 8)  slightly agricultural seating might not be to her liking but I like the overall look of that. I may well be seeking your advice in the near future.

Now look what you've done  :roll:

I showed her that picture and to my surprise the reaction was  ” that's great”, you'd ride in that  :shock:  ” oh yes”

Then I took a look on the Hedingham website and found this image of a blue Steamer and I am now in the pooh, what have you started   :lol:

Already made contract with Hedingham and the owners club  :D  also had a look at the  Charnwood Royal, nice but big, pricey and no longer in production, the Triptec looks good typo but I think she'd want some weather protection.

So the Gem is looking like the one, even if it looks slightly dated, it'll not look out of place on a Steamer. In fact I see a blue Steamer in the gallery but a very small picture, don't happen to know the owner do you?

The Charnwood royal is a huge chair and probably not suited for the Tiger,
if it were me and had the money id go for something like this

http://www.ezs-sidecar.com/en/sidecars/rx/rx4

Squire do the same chair and will be cheaper than EZS,the Munro is a fantastic chair with easy access as its a top loader,but again pricey,the GB agent for EZS is guy called Len Tempest,im sure you can find his details somewhere,the Federation of sidecars website is a good place to ask about the guy who owns the blue steamer,i dont know who owns it sorry.

Now I'm in a quandary. I spotted the EZS connection but my intention was to buy a UK made rig. The RX4 is smart looking set up but I didn't think we needed more than a single seater, certainly not for a noob. It seems that all the flip up rigs are on the larger side though.

Is the difference in the width noticeable with the dynamics?

I spotted Len's name when I was researching training, I might just drop him a line.

Decisions decisions  :roll:

Dont be fooled by the size of the RX4,
it was just right for my then wife who is 5 ft 6 ins and a size 10,
i think the chair is described as a child/adult but only comfortable for a "normal" sized person,

as for aerodynamics......................... :roll: you wont be to concerned with those  :wink:

No substitute for going and sitting in out then  :o

I was actually meaning the steering weight / cornering. I know what you mean about the aerodynamics though, a brick is a brick no matter how you polish the corners, bit like calling a classic Rangie an aerodynamic Defender  :roll:

I'll on my email as I might just be overstaying my welcome with this hijack.

G'day Chairhead.  Amongst the multitude of forums that occupy my time, this one had slipped my memory.  That's happening more & more these days.
I own the Tiger Trek, built in Adelaide by Leigh (who reminded me of this forum & has been lurking :icon_salut:).  It took 2 years to build& it went on the road in Feb 2010.  It's been very good to ride.
I must correct you, the only one that may be better than mine :love10   :augie is the one he is doing at the moment.  'Trek Too' on a '94 Steamer.

Not fussed with yours, so there! :pottytrain2

 :icon_lol:

Seriously now, we are in a very exclusive club. 
I'm working through some videos that Leigh & I made during a 10 day trip we did during September.  Going up on my Youtube channel 'tripodtiger'.
And I'm going through the repairs needed since that trip.  I broke a few things on some fairly rough track that I had to hit fairly hard to get through.  And vibrations etc get to them.
You know how it is.
 :thumbsup

And how do I change my forum id here to match the others I have?
cheers
