theres a guy around 290&Little York with a stark black 3-wheeler not sure if its a can-am or a spyder for that matter. I think he wasnt wearing a lid and has blonde hair though if that helps ring any bells.

I love the forward trikes... or however they are called. Never did like the traditional trikes, which reminds me of the neighborhood icecream vendor on converted moped trikes where I grew up as a lil' kid.

The Rotax twin is a close cousin to RSVR/Tuono's V2. Darn near bullet proof.

Anyhow, I was under the assumption that active stability control is what made these forward trikes possible, as they are otherwise unstable (prone to oversteer).

Saw one this week on my way to work. The guy had a wicked loud exhaust on it. Not my style but I guess it could be appealing.
