A man after my own heart, I found the tadpole trikes with a faring and that is the best ride ever for long trips. Nice to know there are becoming more of us bent riders out there for these sponsored rides.

I had it built custom and did BAK (bike across Kansas) on it last June very successfully and will be happy to see fellow trikers there to compare notes with on our particular rides.
