My hats off to you who can do those crazy mounts!
I was tired of doing the same old static mounts (I can do left or right) so I thought of trying a “cool looking” side-mount, instead of sticking the uni seat on my crotch to mount while people are watching. (I get alot of attention from people when I mount my Coker, they all want to know HOW anyone gets on the BIG uni)
I admit, I am bit scared. I dread that I’d fall on my Coker and hurt myself AND damage my uni, so I dare not try it. My WORST fear is; I’d be without my Coker for days/weeks cause I damaged it. I need to ride everyday! (it’s an obsession, my wife thinks)
But last night after a fantastic dusk ride(feeling really greasy and nimble) I would try it. I attempted to side-mount about 20 times. And to my surprise I did not fall but was able to get on the seat few times! BUT, I was not able to RIDE OFF on the uni. Wow! What a development! Does anyone have tips on how to side-mount AND ride off?
My method, so far:
I put the left peddal on the 3 o’clock position, put my left foot on the peddal, then hold the seat with my right hand then attempt to swing my right foot forward.
