It seems since I got the new trike kit Donna and I can't stay off of it, we have rode over 700 miles in two weeks, and after putting Ride On in the tires it is even smoother. The curves I had a problem with on the BlueRidge Parkway are all but gone now, I just had to get used to a different style of riding, I would also like to thank all those on the Trike Talk web site who helped in NUMEROUS WAYS to get this ol timer ready for a new experience converting his Swing. There is soo much more to say, but, it's time to ride again. GOD is Good mhi

Ron,

It is great to hear you are really enjoying your trike. I have heard great things about those with the SWing. I even remember seeing someone in my town with a sidecar on the swing as well. Have you posted a pic yet of it? I don't remember seeing it. And to end your last statement "All the time".

Pastor Ron, how much did it affect performance and/or mileage? Just curious.

I will be returning to Idaho later this week to complete the closing for a home we purchased. While there, I will be finishing up the repairs to the back wheel, then reinstall the Voyager trike. Will be replacing the rear wheel and installing a MasterCraft AST 165/70 r13 car tire. Had problems ordering the tire. Two merchants had to refund me my purchase. They had forgotten to remove their website advertisement. It has a rounded edges that closely resembles a bike tire should I choose to ride without the trike kit.
Will be replacing the brake pads front and rear, the axle bearings in the swing arm, and do some service items.
This trike has been driven to Sturgis and someone there painted Sturgis scenes on both sides and rear cover (under the rear spoiler).

Jeff, I will have my wife post pictures today. Dale, it takes more throttle to take off, but, once your speed is achieved, the RPM is the same as when it had 2 wheels, however, I did loose 10 MPG !
