I am very excited and I refuse to let anyone (ED) bring me down about it. All of our bikes are toys, not needed but wanted. I know this bike is not for everyone and I have heard all of the "it's ugly" "it's not a bike" and i could care less I am going to ride the wheels off that 990 cc 3 wheeled motorcycle so booya haters, and thank you to my supporters.

It handles great, doing a 360* is no problem at all and it will put ample speed on ya before you know it. Now I gotta have one so I am selling everything I got what do you need I have some money saved but need a bit more. Handsdown one of the funest bikes I've riden.
good for you!

Poll or not you're kinda being a pole yourself why would you want to engage on a topic you know nothing about. It has a motorcycle engine and handle bars and runs like a spotted goose, not your flavor fine but why dog on me for what works for me. I am thinking of my family and I am too short and too unstable for a two wheel motorcycle, this descision was made for my safety and the safety of those around me. Everyone has thier own comfort zone and this is mine, I don't care what you call it. Didn't your momma ever tell you if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all.

yes it does lowering my other bikes did effect the handling and I knew in my heart that if I got in a bind I may not be able to get out of it and take myself out and possibly those around me. I did not want to have an RIP thread for me or any of my MH family because I was out of my comfort zone. I am very comfortable on this bike, it is a bit like riding a four wheeler as far as the stability goes and that is what I need.

who's anybody? it is what it is a snowmobile w/ tires, not a bike, not a car, not really a snowmobile.

and no mom never said that, she's who raised me the way i am, to be straight forward, thats why she's the kick engineer that she is.

so yeah, drive the wheels off of it.

ATA GIRL..!!! That's the spirit....!!!!

The important thing is that you are happy with your Can-Am.

If more people start buying this trikes (sp?) it can bring more awareness from the general non-riding public about Motorcycle/Tricycles in the road. The more..the merrier.

It's all good Ed the main thing is I want to ride and I want to be safe for myself and others, I appreciate your input and I wasn't your mom I am sure she is a great person. I think you and I are both very straight forward and I will cool my jets. I enjoy my dirt bikes and my four wheelers and I will enjoy my trike when I get it. If you feel free spirited when you ride you ride better and this is the first street legal machine that I have felt true comfort on. I am sorry if I called you out a bit but I felt attacked and contradicted and being that we are so straight forward our opinions differ. I simply wanted to share what knowlage I have gained so far on this vehicle. Hope to see you on some rides in the future.

bike, trike, whatever. Semantics aside, it is still a motorcycle.
Good for you NN
And when have you ever known ol' racerx to NOT dog on something that someone else is excited about? He is a hater of the highest order.
