Steer Lite or not?

Have placed a deposit to have my 06LT triked out by a Hannigan dealer in Kissimmee, Fl. I am confused as to whether or not I need the steerlite option.
Does anyone have an opinion on the steerlite and the benefits/problems with-without, etc. Thanks

Talking Steer-lite

If you have strong arms, you won't need it. I have it on mine. It is like having power steering. Really nice on long rides. Can't say I have ridden all day without one. Sure makes it easier to steer. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Get it since you are triking the bike. I have the Hannigan sidecar and do not have the steer lite. This option allows me to disconnect the sidecar and ride the bike in stock configuration.

If you can get your trail down between 1-2" do so and you don't need the steerlite.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about (Hannigan, and the makers of Steerlite do) let them put the steerlite on it.
Steering geometry class was yesterday.
Shawn Mason and I went over several options (we first met over 10 years ago when someone told him to come see me about steering on a Fiero trike he was building), with concepts from Nasty Nick's Shelby Mustang trike, Fireplug's HD trike, his 2nd+3rd builds, my VW/HD trike.
Lets just say we have come up with a plan where you maybe able to countersteer a trike, just like a bike. Which if it works will eliminate the need to relearn to ride moving from bike to trike.
If it don't then we will most likely have a dead test jockey .
