  • AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! Congratulations! It is an amazing trike. Kelli, Is the new showroom done
  • If you are a Facebook user, here's a link to the pics of our ride:
  • Just a couple for us but great day for a ride. Thanks Matt for pulling this together. Nearly 29 miles.
  • Matt, Russ and I rode 28 miles on Kent Trails today. We passed a pair of Rovers, and surprisingly, many other two-wheeled recumbents. Great first ride with fellow trikers. My personal best of 28 miles in one sitting. Knees are a good sore. Loving…
  • For me, it climbs hills quite well, but it does have road tires meant for pavement. I went on a group ride, and we went up the back side of a paved path on a large hill. Of about 25 riders, maybe half were able to ride all the way up it. I was one o…
  • Shawn, awesome! Keep on pedaling. Glad you got back on the 'horse' so quickly. I got Power Grips now too. It helps my climbing ability but taxes the motor--me--more. It really is shocking how just a little exercise helps when you are down, and th…
  • I'm fascinated with my Rover and I'm just a big kid. It's like a cool parade float at times. I should have candy to throw out to the kids. Other comments: "where's the mini fridge?" "you need a flat screen and a remote" "that's cheating" …
  • I think I can make the 2nd! What time and where? I should be flexible for any time. I rode with PedalGR and had a good time. I was the only trike. The organizers have a tandem with a recumbent seat up front and a wedgie seat in the back. About 25…
  • Getting really comfortable with my Rover--almost 15 miles. My calf was cramping a bit from Wednesday for a couple days, even after lots of stretching. I must have pedaled it out a bit. Didn't notice it on the ride.
  • I stopped at the showroom to swap out the rack bag. I upgraded it to the expandable version with built-in mini paniers and quick release plate. While I was at it, had them add the Power Grip pedals and do my 100-mile checkup. Being Saturday, the sho…
  • Great list idea! I went on a local group ride and an inside mirror would have be helpful. The locking brakes are very nice. I think Powergrips may be in my future as well as fenders. I really would like a cup holder. I stopped for a an iced…
  • Patience grasshopper. You just ordered yours just a couple weeks ago, right? I ordered mine locally at TerraTrike June 22, but didn't get it until August 6th. Waiting sucked, but it was a small price to pay for a magical vehicle. Kelli will d…
  • I'm game, but it depends on my work project right now. The more the merrier along as I'm not slowing down and speed-demon wedgie bikers. I've only have a few rids on my new Rover and having ridden a pedal bike more that a few times in the past 5 …
  • I rode Sunday early-evening around downtown Grand Rapids.
  • Shawn, Congrats! My best 2 cents is to go shorter distances to start so you are always wanting to go more. If I push myself so hard I can't or don't want to ride again soon, I've killed my best motivation--FUN. I trained for a 5K foot race …
  • Lots of magic. It brings out the biggest kids in all of my friends who takes it for a test pedal.
  • Captainbob--the Rover Ambassador. I'm so busy with work I can't really ride as much as I want, but the few times it has been a blast. I really amazed how I don't notice the climbs that much. It seems it is mostly downhill on my Rover--both ways.
  • Hey Jeff. I love Greenwell's deluxe Mac n Cheese. And their chicken and dumplings are some of the best. I live around a lot of good food places--hence the need to drop major lbs.
  • I will be having fun--as soon as I'm back in town and not working. I didn't make the time to pack my Rover to take with me where I'm working this week. Getting lots of comments and a few friends saw me on my recent rides. Kelli, nice new pic B…
  • Thanks for the heads-up. I'm cutting my trike-teeth pedaling around town. Will be interesting to check M-6 out eventually. Thanks!
  • Why is M-6 not trike-friendly? I just got a Rover and hope to explore more. I live in Grand Rapids by the Farmers Market.
  • Thanks for the info. It took me weeks to get semi-comfortable on my old recumbent. I don't think the Rover will take as long. Heck, pretty used to it now, just need to work on certain areas. Shifting, faster descents--not that fast but need to get b…
  • No mistake. I was blasting down a hill. Actually broke the speed limit (25). It was a little hairy, but I'm not fully use to the steering. I wonder of TerraTrike did any speed tests of the Rover, especially for bigger folks like myself. On some hill…
  • I was able to write what i wanted in a email then copied it to here. I started a new thread to share my Rover experiences:
  • And my third ride with a long stop (can you find it?) at the Electric Cheetah for a root beer float. It was good motivation, but certainly not needed on a daily basis.
  • I want to know how fast and where I've been so I found locally a Garmin 305. I'll order the cadence thing later. For not being on a bike in years, I'm happy with my results. Also, it is a bit hillier than rails-to-trails so not a fair test. Still…
  • Holy crap. I just spent over a half hour writing my initial experience with my Rover and the dang forum timed out or something. I had to log back in after I went to Preview it and all my writing is gone. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Soooo so so annoyed w…
  • Yeah Captain Bob! I was just informed mine will be ready for pick up today, but unfortunately I have to work. So I'm getting out early tomorrow to pick it up! Yeah!!!
  • Wow Captainbob. Your local dealer seems suspect for saying "oh well" only to steer you to a more expensive trike. TerraTrike seems to be quite helpful. I'm very, very fortunate to live in the same area as TerraTrike. The Rover 8 I took out handled w…
  • Awesome attitude! I waiting for mine as well. I torqued my knee some time ago on a longwheel base recumbent during a fall. Have no0t been able to ride anything without pain for years. Not so with the Rover. I test rode one in June and order…
