The guy riding it had a prosthetic leg from what I could tell....so maybe he's looking for the ultimate in stability

Anything with three foundation points will have about the same amount of stability. Its a matter of suspension setup, which is usually a solid axle on a trike due to funds.

But I hand it to him... unless Im riding behind him on a road w rocks lol

I dunno...the huge tires in the rear make for a longer wheel-base, probably a bit more stable.

Without torsional flex from having four foundational points(all lateral suspension flex will be diverted through the front wheel instead of moving the suspension if there is any in the rear), the weighted contact point of the tires is still the inside of it(see negative camber) and there wont be any roll over in the corners to utilize the remaining say 40% of the tire's usefulness since all the body roll is center mounted. The trike will more then likely slip before it experiences roll to the outside of the tires.

A good streetable tire will prolly compliment the ride much better. If those are Hoosiers are hope they are DOT for his sake and not blue-ing out.

Didn't notice that. The only other things I did notice about it was that it had a massive belt drive and it had a pretty slick soft-tail setup.
