I ride my 05 Hannigan conversion every day to work. Well, not every day. Actually, I have this policy. It it's dry in the AM, I ride it. If it's raining, I go in the cage. I figure, one way in wet weather (rain or snow) is enough for one day.
I love my trike. My wife and I took it to Santa Fe and back (Denver area) last September. Planning on some trips to Texas (to see grandkids) in the spring.
Where to start.
Had to learn that the trike was wider than I thought. I've scuffed both fenders getting too close to others in parking lots.
The pump for getting fuel from aux tank to front seems to be really slow. Hannigan even sent me a replacement fuel pump and it's still slow
. It seems to finally get it done, but takes 30 45 minutes, not twenty as the literature states.
The looks I get, (mostly appreciative ones) and the smiles, questions, etc are gratifying. Most can't believe it isn't stock from BMW. Hannigan designers really captured the essence of the LT.
As for other problems, there haven't been any. I did have one instance where the brake lights came on while riding, but I checked the rear brake fluid level and it was definitely low. Topped it off and it hasn't bugged me since.
All in all, this has been one of the "funnest" expenditures I've ever made. Cost way too much, but I sure am having fun. And, my wife loves it too. That alone is worth the investment.
I have some pics posted on this site in the gallery and a trip report of the Santa Fe trip too.
I've joined the TRI as well and am considering the rally in Nevada. Not sure, but am also considering the CCR in GA. Lonnnngggg trip.
