Default renting

rent a honda metropolitan for $40 a day in key west and if you can't balance it's easy to put your flip flopped foot down at the corners. People do it all the time.

I'd rather have a Morgan 3 wheeler with that J.A.P. V-twin sticking out the front. Now that is a classic.

While it's neat and everything, especially for someone in my condition, I don't think CanAm is going to sell very many.

And for some reason the front reminds me of a catfish.

I do believe there is a Morgan kit out there. Uses a Honda CX or Moto Guzzi engine.

Didn't Morgan's have frames made of wood? I've got some frame material in the back yard!

Of the 3 wheeled vehicles offered to the public's view, I wish this machine had been put into production. I guess one advantage of a flat-sitting "motorcycle" is even wear across the face of the tires....

"Wolfgang Bernhardt drove the GX3 out, proving that it is a runner. It is powered by a barely muffled, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine mounted transversely behind the seats that sends its 125 hp and 112.5 lb-ft of torque to the chain-driven, foot-wide rear tire via a six-speed manual transmission. Volkswagen claims the 1257-lb trike can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 5.7 seconds and get 46 mpg (presumably not at the same time). Even more impressive is the GX3's claim of 1.25g cornering capability."

They are kinda goofy. Looks sorta like a Goldwing trike in reverse. Cool but not my kinda cool.

I'd try it just to experience it. Looks like it could be entertaining but those rental rates are wild. Eh I give it to them for trying though.
