I thought this was the best looking kit and it worked great. I'ld prefer it to a strap on Voyager for looks and fun .... but that's just me. This is on my old buddy's bike (he's passed away, the bike sold). Originally it did not come with the skirts but he got the preproduction skirts to install and worked out the linkage so they always stayed level even as the wheels went up / down. The wheels stayed up unless he pressed a button to drop, and then they would not drop until under a very slow speed setting .... and they raised automatically once under way .... but they could also be raised by a buitton push if desired.
On intersections where the roadway leaned a lot, they did lean the bike with the roadway so you had to take off leaning and learn to transfer to straight upand get it up fast ... or as he did ... use the leg on the high side to keep the bike up and keep the wheels up.
When up, the wheels and the skirts remaining level came up high enough that the first part to drag was still the Bike in a corner, and the skirts tied the looks together. There was a time when I only had my 1200, no trike, and as much as I liked Trikes, I had thought that if the need presented itself due to age / injury, this would be my choice. I recall very well the day I was leading a ride with them and I was riding conservatively as I was mindful of them (he and misses).... and after awhile he said he would like to lead awhile .... on Rt 20 in West Va. Haha ... I was too busy keeping up thento take pictures but he had the bike almost scraping at times that day .... he was having FUN.
I know the company sold, and seems to me it went OOB.
