To keep the bike upright I tie one handlebar grip to the seatpost.

Because the suspension fork raises the front end, the stock bike stand won't work. Need to get a Whizzer stand.
Great.. I think you are very insightful. What would you recommend for someone pulling a trailer full of people (little kids)? They might be far enough back so it won't really matter much but thought I would ask anyway. I guess there must be some serious pull to the left or right with more than one motor for you to have to have grip on the seatpost? That is where I get confused. No matter experience will kick my donkey soon enough.

thanks again 57!
