Be careful what you ask for. Not my cup of tea, but an amazing machine and a hoot to drive, yes drive. They make them about an hour or two from my house.

Hmmm. I've never really understood trikes. All the negatives of a bike but none of the positives. It's like a small convertible that will always leak in the rain.

For me, the reason to be on a bike is to be able to lean into a corner. I love it. That's why I would rather ride a twisty road than drive it. The day that I can no longer ride, I just don't see a trike in my garage.

Of course other people have other opinions, and want a bike you can't lean. That's cool if it's what you want.

Yup I looked a few over. Auto trans, gas and brake pedal, steering wheel, ect. That 2.3L has been around for a long time but should make that little thing into a rocket ship.

LOL, yea but when you see something like that with an AC no less, you gotta take it for a whirl if you get the chance. I agree with you hence the "not my cup of tea" comment.

P.S. It was still a blast to take out.

Cheers

+1. The only "rational" reason I've ever seen for riding a trike is that the rider gets too old to have the physical strength (or knees) to keep a 2-wheeler upright when stopped.

Lot's of wives are more comfortable getting on trikes than on two wheelers. A lot of my stepfather's riding friends have gone to trikes for this reason. They want to take their spouse along so they trike.

It was an example of bringing out the worst in a mob. A competition to see who could establish a new low. I don't much care for her her views, and i doubt the post that offended her came from this site, but the reaction she got in JM was nothing to be proud of.

No, it is not over. She will continue to incite and probably raise the stakes because, as she clearly said, the traffic from all of this is making her a nice windfall profit. She can now shop at the finest bandanna and pudding-bowl stores in Hollywood.
