I have just been kidding you my Friend!! I don't want them and wouldn't even put my fingerprint or DNA on them.

I don't consider trikes bikes, especially electric ones. More like a three wheel golf cart.
There I said it.
I disagree only because they face the same hazards of cagers trying to kill them. They may even have it worse since they cannot make the same kind of offensive maneuvering a bike can. Same knees in the breeze other than that.

I had a three wheel LEANING reverse trike Piaggio MP3 500, a Polaris Slingshot, and HAVE a Can-AM Ryker. None of those either? (LOL)

Well now you bring the Slingshot in and have to agree there. That’s a car with disabilities, missing one wheel. ;)

Personally no because the rider is less involved. On a bike the rider moves about far more and the dynamics are just too different. No insult intended.

Take the Ariel Atom, that to me is a three-wheel formula car.

Technically, it is an AUTOCYCLE which has same requirements as a motorcycle. When I got it in 2015, a motorcycle license was required, but 2 years ago that was dropped (in FL). But still NO insurance is required (as long as you have general MEDICAL insurance if riding w/o helmet), and I NEVER had any for that, or any other motorcycle or trike I've ever owned.

Yeah, I know they invented a new type of vehicle category. It is still a car on disability. :D

I always viewed them as motorcycles for the disabled (no disrespect to the disabled intended).
Trikes have been around far longer than most people realize. A co-worker at the classic sports car/motorcycle shop I worked at was given the task of restoring an air cooled Morgan trike. Weird machine, had the v-twin mounted out in front like a WWI airplane.

It's missing one wheel which I stated above. It's a car with a motorcycle engine. :rolleyes: ;)
A 4th one is superfluous. Performance not handicapped because of it. BTW: My Slingshot had a 2.4L Chevy engine.

My tuner who built my engine and supercharged it, now does the same for slingshots. Turbo or supercharger, I think he may have even built a dual charged one. I do know that he built a twin charged 800+ hp Atom.

Hot off the press! They tried another motor from a different unit and my unit FINALLY worked! So now they are waiting on new motor. They ordered new motor from AYRO earlier in the week.

You should have told them to leave the working motor on your unit and put the new one in the one they took it from.

Must not have been a new one they tried.
