Yeah, but since my version of " temporary " can be months, it was worth doing right enough to last..
I finally got out today for an off-road ride, up my road, thru the traffic circle, and onto the trails i went..
No.1 .. this thing needs mudguards !!!!!!
Something i'm familiar with having an old Honda 250sx trike, when the trail splits in 2 ( the typical 4 wheel vehicle pattern in trails ) you have to choose between the center wheel in the rut, or the pair.. with center in the brush....
However, when the trail opens up and all 3 wheels get good ground , this thing is an absolute riot !!!
I went over a section of boardwalk that's all messed up and really rough 2x4's all at un-even heights.. on my way up to the skate park i rolled along slowly to keep the shakes and bumps down but holy crap you really take a beating... On my way home we were fighting rain so i gave it hell ( 48v
) .. but found that once you hit a certain speed you kinda skip some harsh bumps and skim along..
Kids at the skatepark buggered out and loved the trike.. i've shown up with the chaos, the BMX, my neighbor's 100v 9c bike.. all my machines get thumbs up but the trike gathered a crowd..
You get lots of attention on this thing.. thumbs up from everyone.. people whip out their phones and take pictures out of car windows as they slow pass lol...
I managed to pull a proper donut today ( on dry gravel/dirt ) did a full 360 with a dust clowd !!.. whoot !.
