A very light stoker, but not much contribution from her and still a bit too much "dead weight."

Very funny video---thanks, Len!

Greetings, Paul & All---

I believe on either the Touring (Phred) or Tandem list I heard of a fellow who toured much of the West Coast in the fashion you mention, and the experiences he had with the numerous stokers who took turns on his mount made for a  most interesting read.

Cheerio,

Several years ago, a fellow showed up at a DBTC ride on a tandem sans stoker.  He had a sign affixed to the saddle which said, "Help Wanted".
