    I wonder if the maintenance schedule asks for front tire rotations.....

    Just about ANY motorcycle sucks in loose gravel. It's not like you are riding a CBR1000RR on loose gravel, so I'm sure it sucks less than you think.

    At any rate, this might become of interest to a few people... like people who aren't capable of riding a two wheeler... but outside of that, it's a novelty and will never appeal
    the the die hard motorcyclists. To me it's a lame concept at best.

    Sure... back in about 1990 I was a ski/board technician and Kemper snowboard rep... and I was one of the guys out when snowboarding was first getting going. Back when it
    was allowed on Blackcomb but blacklisted in Whistler.

    A 3 wheel motorcycle, is not the same.

    Great scoot for someone with a spinal cord injury. Outside of that, it's rubbish. 3 slick tires on loose gravel will not be better than 2 knobbies. And I'm sure my dirtbike handles
    better than any slick wheeled bike on it, even if it had 4 wheels.

    Weirdest promo vid ever. *I’m always throwing my samurai swords in milk to make a ski-er-cycle. *
    Why they wouldn’t bring this with the flagship motor is beyond me. *You know they are gonna stock a bigger engine in at some point. *Everyone is just gonna wait.
