MODELS TO ACCOMMODATE ANY RIDING STYLE AND BUDGET!
More and more people each year are discovering how Triking is a fun, easy, emission-free way to keep fit. TerraTrikes offer a great view of the scenery and an immediate relief from the aches and pains of traditional bicycles.
They are great at replacing your car on short trips while laughing at gas prices. They are well respected in traffic due to their curious shape, and they are easy to transport on traditional bike racks or on a TerraTrike specific hitch rack. TerraTrikes have a comfort level and a cool factor that cannot be denied. Treat yourself to a test ride today, and be part of the solution.
Not much time for riding, and too cold to use stationary trainer. Had a bad bug for a month or so, busy otherwise with two jobs. Picked up playing the Mandolin most of the winter, playing in two different groups and genres.
Not sure where or how am going to be able to store a Weber Y2K mandolin on the Rover when the good weather returns. Sure do miss riding! Was going to go out a couple of different times when it did warm up.
Think we had a few days of snow; mostly rain, high winds; and chilly weather. Rover has been in its enclosure all winter long, although I have the enclosure boarded up with plastic sheeting on the outside to protect from the weather ... which in turn helped keep that side of the trailer warmer.
Am still here, off and on.
Recently ditched using an Android phone. The ones I have had do not last much longer than 8 months. Grew annoyed having to send one back or needing to replace yet another. Although I do very much miss the functionality and ease of use, and the widge…
Think it could ride where the ukelele did, between the two fiberglass rods. And the gig bag had a small stripe of reflective material on the top facing edge. Maybe it was meant for the recumbent traveling life.
Think I solved the issue. Bought a Seagull S8 Mandolin with its own gig bag. MUCH lighter and not as bulky, and sounds great!
Here's a reasonable facsimile of what mine looks like.
Not gotten out to ride yet. Still in the 50's, lot of wind, …
29 inches long
13 inches wide at bottom & 7 inches at top
4.5 inches thick at bottom & 4 inches thick at top
20 inches top girth over buckle, 32.5 inches girth at bottom over buckle/hinge
Problem with TT bags is they give no dimensions…

I use a SunTactics solar panel. Works way better than expected, and they've managed to get more energy out of them recently. Also like that SunTactics has a veteran's discount + 5 year warranty. The competition barely has a 1 year warranty.
Yet it …

How did those wagon trains get by without the internet and cell phones ?
Enlighten us what a wagon train has to do with recumbent trikes or alternative power sources that can be used on such.
Can sympathize about the colder weather. Had a bug all last month when it was in the 40's. Now when I can ride it is 10° to 30° F - bitter cold, no snow. The wind kills the joy of riding. Enjoy your 40's, Florida!
350 watts isn't much for hill assistance. From what I read 500 watt was the minimum for moderate, rolling hills. 750 watts is as that maximum allowed legally on most streets & of course most recommended.

Skin getting a bit thin ?
Why comment on something you have no idea what is was about? Seems rather redonculous.

Was no other affordable alternative.
No matter what type of vehicle a person gets, they always want to upgrade it to get more performance, or customize to their surroundings and likes.

Have a Mirrycle mirror on each side, mounted on the ends of the Versa Bar.
Have them adjusted fairly tight, yet still a tad loose. That way if I do run into something like a garbage can or bush the mirror twists - instead of breaking.
We're sure getting a lot of rain in Idaho this year. Storms must be coming from the southern areas as we warm up to the 50's & 60's. Northern Idaho & Montana seen snow already, down here it's been wet. Looks like it will be a late snow this …
Problem about trying to keep posts on topic and in order is impossible. Seems everyone goes and derails the original post and runs away with it. God knows I've tried a few times to keep things in topic for someone else to come along and derail it wi…
Colder weather reduces battery capacity, and more so as the colder temperatures persist. Once the battery gets warmer (indoors) the battery capacity comes back to normal. Depending, of course, on what metal/chemical type of batteries you have.
Any fold lumps on either side of the seat ends - the areas that touch the back of the thighs?
The OEM folds create large lumps that dig into the back of the thighs, making it uncomfortable for some of us larger in life folks.
Damn. Now I see why the rich people flock to the southern areas in the Northern Winter months. Mostly rain here in this part of Idaho. Time to break out the trainer & see if I can practice the mandolin while pedaling in place.
