Took out the Mule Train for it's first ride today.
Took the Kettweisel's out to Lakeside Park today. It took a bit of figuring but we managed to get both inside our Honda Element. Unloading, reconfiguring and hitching them together and changing shoes is about a 15 minute process. That's not too bad.
We didn't ride very far but our trail included a short unpaved under construction section. The Ketts handle rough roads much better than I expected. I don't have a speedometer yet but I'm thinking our average speed was comparable to what we had previously managed on the Screamer. All-in-all, I'm satisfied.
(Mule Team stands for Missouri Union of Longbike Enthuiasts. It must be a tandem club because it certainly isn't an organization. I'm happy that linking 2 Kettweisels together into a train keeps us qualified members.)
