Yes.

I totally understand that the Raptor is a Smile Factory of a machine... Which makes me question why someone would mess it up... May just be my limited supply of oil and grease in my veins. I may not be gearheaded enough to understand. But that is just me. Carry on by all means! I'll take pictures!!!

Actully if its done right its a 30 minut job to swap it back from a reverse trike to a quad. It would be as simple as pulling one shock bolt and the swing arm bolt, slideing the trike swingarm out and roleing the quad swingarm back under it. Swap the front tires and it would be ready to go.

Here's the real reasion I'm even thinking about this. I like the Can-Am Spyder but it is to pricy and it will not do dirt roads very well. Also to make the raptor a trike all I have to do is build a swingarm. Or find one that will bolt up. A few here have seen it tore down. It truly looks like a super bike frame with A-arms atached. I thought about builting a revers trike from a bike but that's a lot of fab work. And ill have th buy a bike. I have the Raptor and any fab work I do can simply be unbolted and swaped out with the stock parts.

Yeah I spend way to much time bored and thinking about building dumb things. But I bet if I build it and ride it to a rally most of y'all will want a turn on it..

I want to go check this place out one day. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to get a bike around the gate.

This is why I came to VA. Celebrating the Fourth with Supawifes family.

In this pic is a WWII vet, a Vietnam vet and a colonel in the U.S. Army who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq. I am grateful to these men and thankful for protecting my independence and proud to be a part of this family. Happy Fourth of July!
