This one just looks like a dumb idea to me. Maybe that's why it's, "used once."

I never understood the desire to have one of those trikes... to me it takes all the inconvenience of a motorcycle, and combines that with all the inconvenience of a car. So I've got a wide vehicle that handles poorly that won't haul anything and I'm out in the elements, but I can't take it off any sweet jumps or on narrow trails, can't even park it close to the front door at Target.

I fall on the trikes aren't bikes side of the fence, but I like the fact that guys that couldn't ride a bike are still out there on their trikes. Even those a$$hauling CanAm things. I was back home to take the AT for one last ride before that snow hit and talked to an old guy on a new Harley trike. He bought it after having his hips replaced and had over $40K in it. That's dedication and a cool guy to boot. :)

Those look about as appealing as a mono ski to me, but hey I never tried one of those either maybe I'm missing something. :confused:

If you like riding a sled you might like the Spyder. That's what it reminded me off is a snowmobile for the road. It's got so much techno/safety gadgetry on it you can't have any fun at all. The foot brake really sucks.

I think the CanAm thing is pretty cool in it's own way. OTOH, a trike w/ two wheels in back and one in front just rubs me the wrong way because of the steering. Anyone who's ridden an ATC90 knows what I mean, it just doesn't work right.

So how about this one? The one in front is cool but check out the one in back. It reminds me of the movie Brazil.
