  • When I first got Rover, the landlord and neighbor wanted to take it for a spin. Of course back then the dealer had the boom all the way out and the seat all the way forward. First thing they did was to do stoppies, sending the rear wheel airborne…
  • Would seriously rethink the design. Heels straps are a cheaper form of retaining the foot onto the pedals to prevent the foot from falling out or across the trike,thus reducing or eliminating the case of leg suck. Teresa M. of the Recumbent Trike…

  • One has to get very creative with the current search engine, even then...
  • Have a Fox40 Sharx whistle that I was carrying on a zipper pull. This whistle is insanely loud!!! Imagine connecting an air can up to one of those, LOL. https://fox40shopusa.com/
  • Did you see it coming?
  • Parents moto: Better to be Safe than Sorry! Rode a skateboard for many years for miles. Wore a helmet, wrist guards with wrist splints, knee pads, gloves, and probably went down a few times cause of a rock. Didn't break a thing. Got to where I wa…
  • (Reuters Health) - Despite some criticism of bike helmets for not being protective enough, they do cut the risk of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) by half when riders suffer a head injury, a U.S. study suggests. ... One quarter of patients had …
  • Usually play didgeridoo music. The locals don't know what to make of it. LOL

  • Thanks, @JamesR Had a tube of white lithium grease, apparently it had gotten lost in the last move. Will pick some up when I get to an auto parts store. So, maybe I should ask you more experienced riders, how will you know when it is time to …

  • Everything matters. Have reflective material on the helmet too, and added some eyes to the back of the mirrors. :P Now that the temps are cooling down, least in the mountain regions, people are going to be dressing up in sweaters and jackets, mos…
  • Go buy a can of reflective white spray. Have at it!

  • I use a Bontrager Flair rechargeable for the rear light, and have dual mirrors. Those are engaged all of the time when on the road.
  • How much did that set you back for shipping and swappage?
  • Like his bird-kite. Wonder where to get one, thought the drag is probably noticeable. A cool looking dragon might be good.

  • Out here, when there are no bike lanes, sidewalks are permitted. Businesses leave their signs out "on" the sidewalk rather than in the unkempt dirt patches next to the sidewalk, and even big Yard Sales signs backed with heavy metal and tires right "…
  • See more issues over here with pedestrians who are plugged in. AirZound usually gets their attention when verbal hails fail. Makes me want to mount a front water gun to squirt them to get their attention - but have no electric motor to quickly escap…
  • Baja California got a surprise as well, and way up here in Idaho we are getting those weird storms from that hurricane system... like last night it went from 50's to mid 60's, then it rained. Too weird.
  • Big screen on the far wall too?
  • For the sake of conversation... on the other side of the coin... If you fail to wear protective gear for whatever reason, and are involved in an accident, does EMT & medical personnel have the right to not treat you? The reason for safety …
  • Have a much older Y hex tool from the early 90's. That I can put quite a bit of leverage on, but prefer a longer L key to apply more torque if desired.
  • Seat Bracket - TerraTrike Photos When I got my Rover the plastic seat parts were upside down and the seat moved a lot. Them plastic parts did not go in very easily, which is probably why the bike shop I got my Rover from was put in upside…
  • Will look into it. $5.95 + shipping for the quick release.
