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.
Thanks for the props, I understand where Ed is coming from but I too am very straight forward as he said and I will be filled with joy when I can get back out there with you guys.

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.
He is not hating on you for wanting to ride it or anything like that.. all he said is it's a Trike not a motorcycle.

Give me a ride when you get it! I'll ride ! :o
It was alot of fun, we got there 45 minutes before closing time so we only had about 30 minutes seat time but in that 30 minutes I knew it was the bike for me. I have a 1/3 mile track around my acreage where I ride my dirt bikes and four wheelers so I am pretty used to the lean you have to put into these to make them go where you want. And they'll turn on a dime with no problem. I think I will bust out my four wheeler this weekend in between a birthday party and a welcome to our new MH baby just so I can ride. I miss riding soooo much but didn't feel safe on two wheels on the road being that I am 4'9" both of my 250's were slammed as far as they could be to accomodate my height which totally changed the way they handled. I wont have those issues with this one.

Go for it dude. It's very stable and the power may suprise you. Your natural instinct may be to lean, but it's totally unnecessary. If that's what you want, go get it and we look forward to seeing you ride.

My buddy has one and he runs the wheels off it. Put some drag radials on it and it will ride like it is on rails. The optional light kit is good also it lights up the road nicely. He is looking for a good exhaust to put on it right now just dont know any good aftermarket companies. Congrats on your purchase they are priced pretty steep but definitely the best trike I have ever ridden. That summermobile would be awesome for road trips and picking up curb monkeys.

When I rode the spyder I had to lean off the side so it wouldn't pull me off in a turn.

the bump steer is very eerie. fun to ride but definitely not a bike...and unless they changed something the speed limiter on it only lets it get just past 100, then again i would not want to deal with bump steer at those speeds!
