Our Bikes

Both of us (The Wife and Me) ride during the summer here in columbus. We dont take them camping, which limits our time on them. Looks like gas is going to hit 4 dollars a gallon this summer, so we will be riding to work more. Also I am including the little one that we all started on, it was a Yamaha Exciter 185, great starter bike. Here are some pictures:

Covfam,

Trikes and Sidecars are a completely different experience than a motorcycle. Before the HD I have now we had a 2004 Roadglide that I had a sidecar added to for our then 4 year old daughter. Steering a sidecar rig is quite a workout since you are constantly pulling left on the bars to counteract the sidecar. A trike if properly set up should track straight but in the turns it is a workout and will require you to lean opposite of what you would expect to keep all three wheels on the road. It was actually quite fun to "fly the chair" with the sidecar up in the air going down the road after making a right hand turn.

Well to be honest with you, we do take it camping with us for that very use. It has a key ignition (on/off) so no one can just ride it away. It is elec obviously. I weigh about 260 and I am 6'6" and it will take me around at about 20 + mph, 11 yr old daughter it will do about 30 mph. Lots of fun and very quiet. adjustable seat height, front and rear disc brakes, and a springer front end and soft tail of course.. loads of fun, everyone asks, where did you get that... and...how much was it.. has about a 30 mile range on a charge....

here is the link

Super Cycles & Scooters

about 500.00 with shipping to my door. easy assembly. My wife rides it also.

My daughter just thinks we bought it for her...

there are some look a likes out there but they do not go as far or as fast, the link above is for the real deal.
