I rode on at Sturgis this year. It was the most awsome ride you can imagine. I had such a high that I had a headache all day long. Goin 60 mph and hit the throttle and you just spin the rear wheel. It was an awsome ride. I can't believe how well it handeled. If not for the price, I would have one. If you ever get the chance, ride one.

I never heard of them and just took a look. Man, they are cool looking! What's up with that big kitchen fan if front of the bike!

I have never ridden one but a good friend rode the trike last summer and he said it was pretty cool, lot of power, he did say that the brake powerscared the heck out of him or lack there of. He said he didn't know if it was just that bike but he said that if that's the way they all are, no thanks.

I looked them over at thunder beach in the Fall. They are cool. this little petite lady was riding one around and through the parking lots where the vendors were-- she made it look easy. I was impressed with her riding skills,.

An engine stand that you can ride. I was blown away by the performance. Just revving the engine in neutral, the torquewouldlet you know " this is no Vespa". The weightwas carriedlow.It was a test ride and I did not want to loose it and have to buy it so no burn outs with me. Mine had a 350 cu in Chevy. The distributor was in aBAD location.(between my legs). Thank God it had no voltage leak!I saw one in Daytona with a 426 Hemi. I would not want one, but did injoy the ride. The power is cool!

Never rode one, but spent about an hour talking to a BossHog owner a month or so ago. His biggest (and only) complaint was it's low speed handling manners. Oh yea....and the weight, when he parked on grass one time, and it tipped over.

Did he have to get a crane to right it?[sm=icon_rofl.gif][sm=insomnia.gif][sm=laughingsmilie.gif]

I read to get them up you have to stand on the opposite side on the frame and pull using your weight to lift it up
