look forward to seeing you on it at the Yankee Rally. I took one on a demo ride in Johnstown a few years back. A ton of fun. The paddle shift no clutch is nice. The newer ones now have a triple engine with better performance and mileage. Only thing I didn't care for was it being a bit twitchy. A slight movement of the bars and it would really turn. A passenger has to be mindful to always be hanging on. It doesn't lean like a regular motorcycle. A bit harder to avoid road kill or other crap on the road with 3 wheels.

All that matters is you don't have a roof covering your head, and you can still smell the smells of riding. I look forward to seeing it! It's not like you went to a Slingshot or anything...

When visiting Buffalo, Sister Moo was our tour guide. On the way to Niagara Falls she told me to roll down the window & we could smell Cheerios, I didn't. The next day, heading through on the bikes, all of a sudden I could smell Cheerios It's one of those special memories that pops up now & then......usually when I'm having breakfest
