right side mounting?

Postby beaconlight » Tue Aug 28, 2007 9:31 am

I have been doing some horse back riding lately and realize what a bummer it must have been to the farmers mounting a cub from the right side.

There was a special model especially for those who couldn't adapt. :D

Why is it that it looks SOOO wierd in mirror image, but looks so normal when viewed with the correct angle? THe engine looks like it is going to fall over in the mirror image pic!!!

The trouble with that series is that you had to turn left to go right, and vice versa - sorta tough on the crop rows until you got used to it :wink:

Please don't confuse me any worse than I am already. I have enough problems getting on and off one now, I would have to learn that one all over again.

For about the first six months that I was stationed in Japan, whenever I would open the right side door for a date, the steering wheel would be there. I got to where I would just ask her if she wanted to drive, and then walk her around to the other side.

Bob, know what you mean. I had both a left-hand drive, as well as a right-hand drive car while in the UK. After a while, I could jump into either one without it bothering me. The girl that I was dating had a problem though, she couldn't get over sitting on the opposite side without the steering wheel being there for her to grab.

Bob, where abouts? Spent a little time at Misawa AB myself.
