Seems I cannot stay out of trouble.
I will just say short and sweet. I am a DarkSider, I believe in using a CT on the 1800 very much. I have a new one installed, wanting to go play with it but have the flue...ARRRRGGGG!!!
The trike project shows a lot of ingenuity and a lot of skill and is something to be very proud of.
But a trike is a trike is a trike and not a two wheeler. To offset the rear wheel on a two wheeler would be putting forces into play that most have no idea what the result would be, and the word should fit means it has not really been tried?
As one who runs a Run Flat and thinks it is a great thing for the majority of the roads we run on and the interstates, I made a promise I would never say or do anything that would bring harm to another rider.
Things have to be actually tested, fitted, and evaluated, and to offset the rear wheel on a regular motorcycle would bring many forces into play that may be very hazardous , such as a high speed wobble. Not sure about that, but have no intent to find out either.
A CT does lend itself well to the 1800, but that is the only bike so far that has shown real and safe results. Many people will do many things, tis the nature of the human spirit to try. I would have to see this, see it fit, in many ways, I would never just say it should fit.
Ok will behave now.
