    Are you in Quartzite Az? That's quite a place during the winter!

    8000 miles is very good. I have about 1200 miles on my Tiger (66cc) engine and it runs fine. Some piston slap noise but that's not a big deal.

  3. Nice workhorse! I like the trike idea, too. I've been eyeing the "Bike-car" plans in Popular Mechanics for nearly 20 years, but I think that your trike would be more feasible, especially when motoring is involved :evil:
