We picked the Bike up Saturday Morning and did 60 miles to get home..Mostly back country roads (hills and Curves) and short sections of 4 lane state highways..All I can say is I am very Impressed..it is very stable and the ride was smooth(no wooble or shaking)even over rough patches and several railroad crossings...Smooth as silk..I was totally shocked the ride was as good as it was was..I did get several double takes on the roadway and a few Thumbs up as well!!!...When we got home I took the unit off to get familiar with the mechanics of the unit...it took 5 mins to remove the unit and 5 to put it back on..This Unit is very user friendly.
I'd like an answer to my ? after you've taken a much longer ride, like an over-nighter somewhere.
Love to try one on a Wing! Only dealer around me never has one mounted to any Wings he has. He only mounts them on customers bikes and I'm not about to ask anyone, espercially a stranger to ride their bike!
Installed a kit about 2 weeks ago and I love it.. Due to health and medical reasons it was becoming impossible to hold the beast up and a full trike kit wasn't financially possible..
I talked to several owners and my dealer and heard wonderful things.. Talking to those who had trikes but never owned insta-trike said bad things or said it would just be a waste of money..
Having ridden both a full trike (over 2500 miles) and insta-trike (just over 500 miles) I can tell you a full trike rides better but the insta-trike is a GREAT vehicle add-on.. For the money difference and knowing everyones budget is different I would not be afraid or hesitant to recommend the insta-trike to anyone..
I had the unit dealer installed and have loved every minute of the ride.. If you are considering buying due to finance or just for safety reasons let me say that you won't regret the move.. It is also a great way to make sure you want a trike before shelling out $10k-$20k only to find out you don't want it..
The kits run $3000 - $3800 and re-sell for around $2500.. My dealer has sold and installed several kits and have upgraded several of those bikes to full kits after a year or two and helped the owner sell their used instatrike..
Overall a great add-on for someone who severely needed it and once again enjoying riding and no worries about dropping it and now having relaxed hassle free rides..
Anybody thinking about this kit and have questions feel free to drop me a pm and I will be glad to answer and help...
Well we put 850 miles on the the insta trike..could not have gone smoother..Did the Dragon 2 times and we couldnt have had a better time, We met some great Goldwingers down there. Lots of MC traffic on the Skyway and the weather was terrific..All I can say is the kit did great.
