  • Wait a few daze and I’ll update it. But one cannot believe the forecast until the day before. They are still practicing their craft. What are you going to do with Rover when you stop for the night?

  • 79 forecast highs for next Wed & Thursday in Grandville. There’s that artic front.

  • I have looked at that hill area of the park from a satellite. Cannot tell where the summit is and the distances.

  • So I’ll need new brake pads afterwards. Or walk Trike down. Drag boat and kayak anchors behind. Thanks for bringing that up. 3mph on the climb?

  • Thank you.

  • That was nice to see. Hope those narrow bridges are one way only. Would have been nice to see the “Hill Climb” grade. 13 mi + hill climb will be enough for me. Let’s hope for an artic front the day before.

  • Ah, there is another Parrothead amongst us...
  • Finn’s to the left, Finn’s to the right. & you’re the only Trike in town...

  • On top. Seems to work it’s way back. We use a Roho air cushion on top of the two foampads inside of seat. We don’t feel the wedge if it has moved.

  • Hafta have a gimmick for it to sell. A deli closeby has a sandwich called the Gimmick. Lotsa starches.

  • I didn’t see the solar panels.
    in Parades Comment by Finn59 July 15
  • I couldn’t use one because of the time of day I ride. Sun is low and it’s buggy out. I’d buy a ticket to see a trike fly with a solar panel on top. Have panels on top of air foil shapes out to the side. Take flight. Defeats the purpose of riding, Br…

  • I am still waiting for an answer about how wooded/enclosed the ride will be. I normally ride in late afternoon. Non an am person. Start drinking caffeine agane. Bring something that has eucalyptus + lemon. Do a google search to see what is a good pr…

  • My wife sometimes uses skin so soft from Avon. Has both a body soap for shower and an oil to be applied after. Doesn’t work for all. I’ve had diff results with deer flies depending on what soap I use in am. I have been using lemon eucalyptus dope …

  • Is the loop the group rides at Riderfest in open areas or woods? I know Millenium has water. Thanks.

  • A few circled me tonight. Downwind they knew I was coming. But on the way back was worse. Thinking hard about those electronic fly swatters on my knees. Or a solar panel powered fly zapper grid in front on riders.

  • I ride north late so sun is behind trees to the west. Now if I could just find the time when the deer flies aren’t looking for their next meal.

  • Would you have to climb up into truck bed to secure them? One may have to be backed in your bed while the other faces forward. We do they configuration in our trailer. Easier to load/get into trailer than a truck bed. jmho. Da Finn
  • She wants her seat more upright now. I’m sure the wedge will help keep her back.

  • Love is in the aire...
  • I went back to the dealer and bought one for Vicki. She needed it. It keeps you back against the seat. We both use Roho air cushions on top of seats now. Softens the ride.

  • One guud thing is the width availability of the pipe if one wanted to change to a wider tire. Alum I use is stuck at 1 3/4”.
  • It crossed my mind but I questioned the strength. It would attach to my square steel with square u bolts. Maybe even double up on it. Tying down all three tires/wheels is working on my rack. Tying wheels to side rails on our trailer keeps them from …
  • Videos on YouTube give ideas. Where ramps overlap onto the bed/tailgate might be problematic. You’ll need angled aluminum. Purchased online. Guud luck.
  • Make them out of wood, 2x4’s with thinner strips nailed on sides as guides. Just need two. Lift back wheel/rack of trike and walk it on. Or if you like spending money one can buy ramps at Harbor Freight or online. Prob need 6’ at least. I made two f…
  • “Cat in the Hat” head gear. Red will draw the bees and the hummers in.
  • Suspension for you off roadeez??
