    Hi All!

    What a great site! I'm fairly new to the business (2 years) so I have a lot to learn but brand new to the use of a Velke. I'm a big guy (235lbs.) and I feel very unstable while cruising along on my new velke...especially while making turns. Does this just take some getting used to? I know when I got my first commercial WB, it took a little while to get the hang of that as well so I'm hoping it is the same with the Velke.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm 6'2" and about 240#. I use "step savers" with my walk behinds. I don't like riding hills, ditches, low tree branches, or the 1st round trim cut but after that, I attach and run the thing wide open. Oh, knees bent slightly and one foot slightly forward of the other. Much of the time I'm standing on one leg with the other hanging off the back and switch legs often.
