That is correct . Talked to old dude today and tentively planning Saturday early evening pickup . He is kinda freaking out I am pulling it home on a trailer behind wing .
I am planning on investigating making rear suspension and swing arm for it currently . I have 9 acres with 3 acres swamp low land . 25" tires on it and 200cc of pure Honda reliability . I am stoked. I have owned many of ATC's . Most Honda's with regular maintence are as dependable as our wing motors . Got a yoshi pipe and bigger carb already dug out for it . Gonna run KLR seat and custom rear fender . Gonna gear it down a lot as I want to climb walls with it
I am thinking of naming it Swamp Railer

Livin life to its fullest daily to prevent regrets later,,, or I am a freaking loon . Either way I am good .
Where's Rail now??http://share.findmespot.com/shared/f...ahHnkalxai42Hi

If not for lawyers they would still be around . Up here I loved them in the snow as all 3 wheels packed a trail like no other. I owned a 250R that I modded that would run 65mph flat out and handled very well with lower profile tires and very modded suspension .

I just remember that if you ran very low air pressure to make a soft ride over the rough terrain and then hit the road at full speed that thing was all over the place.

Yes indeed. They should have never been ran on pavement . They were way to grabby for sticky surfaces . Unless you ran lawn mower tires on them aka flat tracker tires . Than one could slide them under power around corners like Tokyo Drift movie .

1250 miles in 18 hours .
Got home at 10:45 pm
Crazy weather systems I drove through . Made a nice loop around chi town on way back bringing me into Rockford to avoid all the construction in Milwaukee ,Racine, and northern Chi town . That saved a lot of time for drive home .
