Excessive heat on right side of Trike
By Doug Moore(Owner), Jul. 25, 2013

Tri Glide Blues
By T Stone(Owner), Feb. 19, 2013
My experience with this 30 thousand dollar machine is not good. I cant believe Harley put something like this out!!

It is gutless in 6th gear. I know thats overdrive, but I should not have to stay in 5th gear to keep up with a 650cc Yamaha while traveling down the interstate.
