    Beautiful!! Here's some good reading on keeping the heat down. It discusses the M8 also and cooling remedies.

    nice looking trike
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
    we have gone that way from Kermit -wink to El Paso several times last few years (I'm working out here in west Texas) we always stop and eat at van horn the lil tex mex joint with all the football stuff

    its a long hot ride in the summer and if raining or windy there's not many places to stop
    Enjoy the new ride and let us all know how much you like it after you have her a few months

    So, now that you have ridden both 2 and 3 wheels in the rain, how do they compare? I've never ridden a trike but do see one in my future and was curious as how the two big wheels in the back effect handling in the rain. Does in want to hydroplane or does it stay pretty planted with the extra weight back there? I've scared myself pulling a trailer in the rain and the trailer started hydroplaning, I'd think the trike would hold it steadier.

    It is more comforatble in all weather The two wheels did good but made us nervous as hell. With three there is no fear like it was on two. As for the ride I am more comfortable now as medical reason sucks for my feet on two wheels. Yes the trike is steadier as hell I rode one my 2012 in a the snow storm and no worries corning plus with a lot of sand on teh road I am safer

    I'm thinking my next one will have three wheels so it's good to hear that it'll handle the rain. I'm thinking it'll handle a bigger or heavier trailer better then the two wheels will to.

    We towed a timeout to alaska and back did not know it was there. One time we hit a frost heeve and went airborne the trailer pulled us down, after that slow pace in Alaska highway LOL. Only reason for us is based on no feeling below my knees so it was hard to balance the bike. I would also reccomend the Trike Mid Step for me it is worth the price and piece of mind getting on and off and no more ripped seats
