Ahhhhhh, I sure appreciate the creativity, and the desire to do something way different, but I HATE 3 wheelers! Wouldn't be caught dead on one!
That's just me, Limey. I respect what you've done and encourage individuality.
Keep thinking like you do, never fall into lockstep with all the other sheeple.
But you did say 'let me know what you think'...

I haven't voted for BOTM yet. If you promise to give me a free puppy or some other perk, I'll vote for you

Interesting idea Limey. Now go find some unsuspecting Spyder and blow his doors (em, wheels?) off!

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Unfortunately, the whole reason for trikes is vehicle laws here consider a trike as a motorcycle, while a quad is considered an automobile.
So a trike doesn't have to comply with many vehicle safety regs like a quad would.

Too bad since Europe has some pretty nifty quads by custom fabricators.
Lazareth has made some damn cool quads. Especially the one with a BMW V-12 engine.
