Default 3 Wheel Dirt Bike

Check this out. It's similar to a Piaggio MP3 with a KTM motor. I guess people want 3 wheels instead of two these days.

There are a lot of people that still b!tch about the three-wheeled ATVs being banned. Looks like a good substitution.

Except those skinny tires won't work in the sand dunes and that's what the original 3 wheelers excelled at.

The old Honda CR250 3 wheeler still has great resale value.

I've got one exception to the three wheeled doit byke...road berms at speed and endless sandy whoops. I guess if you avoid those, everything's just swell, except for singletrack, trees, rocky hillclimbs, quicksand, exploding cactus' and cats getting stuck in the drag links. Oh well, back to the drawing board...

Okay. I'll accept scooters but enough of the three wheelers already. Who cares? Set up a website for the people who are afraid of tipping over and let them go there.

This is not really a dirt bike. No knobbys, and not enough wheel travel.

It'd make flat-tracking pretty fun.
