I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the trike tomorrow. I must have missed something previously
or maybe I wasn't paying attention, but what's the benefit of the roll bar? Does the trike have
seat/shoulder belts?

seat belt and shoulder harness...yes (in the final version). the rollbar is there as someplace to
mount the front/rear lighting (up) where the guy in the SUV can see me.

Being the timid type I'm thinking of something a little less thunderdome like........maybe trikeball
polo on an off-street trikeball field such as Joshua's parking garage.

P.S. Hurry up Joshua and get those pictures up. The whole world is waiting. Not since Segway have I
experienced so much anxious anticipation.

Gabe I was wondering when you'd reappear. I am emailing the pics tonite to those who showed an
interest and then onto Yahoo (hopefully b4 midnite). I suspect you will hate it no matter what it
looks like. I was tempted to post a pic of a Thorax just to see if you ran it into the ground
(thinking I built it). So, got any more Calfee pics for us to comment on or did Gardner take away
your camera after you posted the 1st set? Hugs and Kisses

What a cynical man you are, I am genuinely interested in your trike. Knock off the 3 year old
attitude please.

Damn...you didn't fall for the bait. Guess the idea of getting a flame war going isn't going to
happen after all and now I cannot use the flame war as an excuse why I had to stop doing the trikes.
Since the person doing the pics won't arrive till 9:30 tonite....I have a whopping 5 hours to do
what should take 3 days. How bout a small flame war?

On second thought let's forget Trike Polo. It was a really dumb idea to begin with and would
probably bring into the newsgroup a class of people [1] that Tom Sherman and others would have
serious issues with.

Rich,

I do not have any problems with you.

BTW, are you planning on doing the Easter ride? The start is not too far from where you live. I
expect many of the usual Chicagoland Recumbent Riders suspects will be there. <

Finally, you are beginning to make some sense.

You will look like a backhoe tootling down the road.

I have noticed that when I go to the service station on my 21,000# CAT 416C backhoe to fuel up, the
SUV drivers give me a WIDE berth. When I go down that same stretch of road on my Barcroft Dakota I
have to fold in my handle-bar end rear view mirror so the same SUV drivers (and all other cagers)
don't wipe it off.

Tom, that was a meagre attempt at jest. Yeah, I'll be doing that ride with a couple of df riding
friends. Hope to see you there.

rich, getting in lots of rural miles lately

When I am not pedaling I generally drive my 2000# much-modified Suzuki Samurai 4x4 to work. I am
very low on the pecking order on the freeway. A$$holes threaten my life with their big rigs a
couple feet off my rear bumper. One day I may demonstrate some road-rage to them. They seem to
feel that Caltrans built the inner lane just for people willing to be scofflaws and a bad example
to our youth.

But when I drive my 7000# lifted diesel long-bed stretch-cab 4x4 pickup they don't try to
intimidate me.
