Trikes

Post by x-90 rider »

I think that this new forum is a great idea. We do not own a trike but I think that someday we will be riding one. I like the idea that there does not seem to be any rules on building a custom trike and anything goes. The other thing that I think is great is that you do not have to put your feet down in "stop and go" traffic. 8)

Here are a few different trikes that I thought were unique.

X-90,

I agree with you, that I preasently don't ride a Trike, the possibility is there that some day I will have to. I agree with you on the pictures of the Trikes.

Thinking of my Grandson, I liked the one with the Briggs engine. Also, when my children were in elementary school, I had the oppertunity to rebuild a 45 inch Harley Police Servi car from Boxes. What a project, Both in enjoyment and frustration. Did get it running tho.

I hope the Trike Board goes.

I think that the Tri-a-Busa is pretty wild looking. I would not want to ride it in the rain and some rear fenders would be nice. :shock:

We looked at every trike manufacturer at Americade in 2006 and I was very impressed with California Side Cars and Lehman. The other thing that was a real surprise was the huge number of Insta-Trikes on the road - what a cost effective idea for a trike.

I love my InstaTrike... it took care of my hip problem. As an added plus, my wife now ASKS to go for a ride rather than decline my request to go.

I'm still lovin' my trike, Miss Scarlett. It was a great investment for me. And Santa, you're right, everyone wants a ride.
