W bought that excuse, too. 8-D I don't expect it to be around much now that the higher bars are on it. She already has plans for today. Careful - Spyder venom is addictive! :-)

Jim you have it all farkled out! I definitely want bar raisers and so much more. So far all I have is the tale pack which by the way is very cool. I keep walking into the garage just to look at it. I get my first ride on it Wednesday when I have a day off. I can't get Dave off of it. Some excuse about breaking it in.

It's a blast, but definitely takes a little getting used to. On the highway it's very smooth, very stable through the rough stuff. The stock suspension settings are way too soft for a man my size and it leans quite a bit when it sets on the suspension (outward) in a sharp corner. This occasionally kicks in the "nanny" because it thinks your going to lift the inside wheel.

The motor is fantastic, tranny too. The bike shifts seamlessly. Brakes seem very powerful. There is no hand brake, only the foot pedal. You won't forget twice.

Gail worked Sunday, and late today and tomorrow so Wednesday will be her first chance to put some time in on it. I think once she gets used to its nuances she will really like it.

If you can set "conditions to be fulfilled" and have even a remote chance of enforcing this, we need to talk!! I am usually the one that gets conditional approval for things.

But tell us, how does it ride? I have watched all the propaganda on the website, very impressive.

Re: Guess what I came home to today!

I am ***soooo**** tempted to wonder about a Merry Widow. Naw, that would be juvenile and inappropriate and other things. I wonder, has that ever stopped me before?

I am anxious to hear what you think of it after you get some time on it.
Same here. Emily has been wanting a Trike for years, I really don't like trikes, but this looks promising. I love to hear how "it" performs two up on a longer trip.

Congratulations!

How about "Wall e" after the new Disney movie character. The mirrors and the two upper lights look like it.
