Stage Entry
Initial ""We're adding a new feature to the bike and we want YOU to give it a test run. Come see us in the engineering building when you're ready to ride." -- George and Angelica
1 After speaking with Angelica:
  • Today I'll be testing something called a 'sidecar,' which means I'll have Towa riding next to me through the whole test.
2 After testing the bike (with bonus conditions):
  • It took some getting used to, but I think I handled the side car pretty well.
