I heard somewhere on some 'other' forum that Honda was actually considering building a factory Goldwing trike. Don't know where they got that or it was wishful thinking. But one would think it would be good revenue for momma H.

give it a bigger engine and a bit faster reverse.

I think Harley already jumped the gun on this as they just partnered up with Lehman.

If it\'s called "tourist season" why can\'t we shoot em?

That is what the guy I got my 1200 said. He wants a trike bad and he wished Honda would make one. He said he will have to get the harley one when it comes out unless Honda makes one.

We are not talking about the same animal here. An ATV 3 wheeler was a toy that often weighed less than the rider on board and had a high center of gravity, while a trike is a full grown 1200 lb. vehicle with a low center of gravity. I have a friend who owns a California Side Car trike and it will take the curves better than my 2 wheels w/o ever lifting a wheel. I have trouble keeping up with him w/o grinding off the pegs. The CSC is a little bit wider than some of the other kits, which affords extra stability.

But, if you're still leary of rolling over in a curve, then this company may have the answer. Theirs is warranted not to flip over because thay use a combo side bumper/floorboard system that will hit the ground 1st before the rear wheel can lift. These have brand new VW type 2000cc engines that are imported from Germany, and can tow up to 1500 lbs. via the 2" receiver hitch. Starts at around $18000 for the base model. Just think, all that engine heat and noise is behind you. Check them out here;

You know if the factories would look at what riders are doing to fix up there rides and come out with some of the ideas they make more money and save the riders a little cash and work.

Nice looking Trikes. Good range of product too.

Looks like they cover a wide range of user tastes. If I were thinking trike, I would probably give them a look. Don't like paying for high octane fuel on the Fighter model though.
