they are not yet available but I think it will the 2nd "bike" in the home. Lots of fun, good power and torque. Gets LOTS of looks.

It wouldn't make it as my only bike, but as a second. it just might.

If I just hadn't purchased a new VTX, I would be VERY interested. Actually I'm still interested, just broke.

I'd be afraid that it would combine the worst aspects of a car (size and maneuverability) with the danger of a bike, along with the instability of a three wheeler. But I've never been on anything like that to be sure.

Count me in as one of those who are less than enamored with this reverse tryke. I rode it twice already and I still haven't found anything interesting other than the sweet Aprilia V-twin engine.

If I were to do a tryke, then I'd go with the Piaggio MP3. At least I can steer that thing like I would a motorcycle. The MP3 is a 250-cc but there is a 500-cc version coming out too.

"along with the instability of a three wheeler"

I have and use a Whizwheelz terratrike http://www.wizwheelz.com/ which is a recumbent trike with the two wheels in the front. It is quite stable and takes a bit of effort to get one of the two front wheels to come off the ground. It is a far cry from a standard trike that some grandmothers ride around the retirement center.

Now if you want to talk unstable, try one of the short wheel base two wheel recumbents. That is a real challenge to ride.

I would rather have a bent walking stick. I would rather walk down the road pulling a hubcap on a string. I would rather have a pair of Jeff Gordon officially licensed #24 tennis shoes. I would rather have a black and white picture of a grey Edsel. I rather listen to a song about a two-wheeled motorcycle. I'd... Ahhh, no thanks.

Three wheelers with 2 in the front are among the most stable machines you can ride, and still be deemed a Motorcycle.
