Neat, I like the Aburn Boat Tail look. Now if it just had a highly polished supercharged Lycoming flathead straight-8 we'd have a sale fer sure.

We are currently in love with "workload leveling". And "positive findings". If you can't get a task done because supply lost the parts order and you say "Supply didn't get the parts" its a "negative finding". You're supposed to "overcome" and get a "positive finding". No one explains how you get the job done without parts. You just better not be "negative".

Speaking of trikes
 
I have seen quite a few of those Can Am deals on the road. I'm surprised they're selling as well as they are.

However, if you're going to ride a trike, two wheels on the front is the way to go.

Every trike I'v ridden never inspires convidence in the handling dept. I'd buy the CanAm Spyder much safer vehicle.

Yeah, I gotta agree Buzz. I never did get the whole trike thing. The whole niche just doesn't appeal to me. This one looks nice and all. I like the boat tail look instead of the normal blocked off back end. I find it hard to believe you can't fit a helmet in that big trunk though.

Those old VW trike kits weren't bad. With the looong wheelbase and the engine behind the axle they were actually pretty stable. Plus you'd look right at home in your tie-dyed T-shirt and square magenta granny glasses.

2 front wheels, 2 back wheels, doesn't matter. I'd rather walk than be a "Tricyclist."

You say that now. But wait until you're 70 and have worse knees (not worse looking) than now.

I'm with Ken.

For me, if I get to the point where I can't ride I'll go to sports cars. A mini is more fun that any 700+ pound two-wheeled pig anyhow.
