Wow. That come out of left field.

I guess we need an official insulter for the board. I nominate Cyote(chicken lips)61.

Technical information is good, but you have to look at it from other angles as well. What attracts us to a goldwing of any model over the other bikes on the market? Technical sophistication is only one PART of the equation. Lots of people ride the GL1000 still and by todays standards that is a simple bike. Looks of it is a category all to itself. The machines that have the two wheels up front and one it the back looks weird, not very motorcycle at all. I've seen several, some better done then others and none of them made me think of a motorcycle.

The classic trike however dose leave a taste of motorcycle in my mind, but not like a two wheeler. The 1500's and 1800 trikes do have a truly classic and classy look.

As to being welcome, I think every one has made it clear that you are welcome, and I can see how this misunderstanding happened. Something to note though, not all post in a thread point back to the originating post. Anyway, I think I've said my piece.

Mad Meteor, I am disapointed that you have decided that everyone is bashing you. You asked for folks oppinions and they gave them. No one is bashing you.

Since I have no knowledge of the technicalities of two wheels up front trikes, I am not in the least bit qualified to comment on that area. My only comments were based on aesthetics, as were most other folks comments.

I would sincerely apologise if you think this was a bashing of you and your origional post, it certainly wasn't meant to be. I would also hope you are not just going to leave the forums because of this. There have been many threads where there was disagreement between members about a subject, but they didn't leave just because they had different views.

Now why not just carry on with the subject and give your version and views :baffled:

:waving:

Well Mad Meteor, I think we would all be sad if you didn't come to the forums, just over this subject, please be assured that I for one was in no way wishing to disagree with you and was just expressing my own opinion.:waving:

If there were a demand for front wheel trikes and Honda built them, then I would sincerely hope that they were a success. :clapper:

The link that you added, is indeed an interesting bike and by far the best front wheeled trike I have seen, unlike many that I am sure you will agree, look as if the front has just been cobbled on without much thought to aesthetics.

I've had to get the pruning shears out and cut out some of the argumentativeposts here. Please remember that this part of the forum is for suggestions for Honda, so lets try and keep it focussed rather than going off in odd directions.
