Current toys. Harley Tri Glide and 50 Dodge Rat project with 440.
Very nice!

Does the Harley ride just as wierd as a Spyder? I took one on a test ride and was specifically told, "Do not Countersteer!"

No countersteering. Not really weird, just different. It’s more like an atv. There’s a definite learning curve, but they handle better than you think they will. Most of the people that complain about trikes have just been on one once or twice and haven’t learned. They’re not bad... just completely different from bikes.
Spyders handle well, but I like more mechanical systems than electrical.

Sounds good, before that Spyder ride the only experiance I had was V-Twin cruisers so the whole experience took some adjustment for me. A zippy 3 cylinder with a DCT and just using the right foot pedal as the only brake and don't try to countersteer... It was fun, but not what I was looking for.

Try a Harley Freewheeler. That’s their cruiser trike. The Tri Glide is the touring model.

I'll look into that but probably a bit out of my price range at the moment. I don't think I've ever seen a Freewheeler in person before. Just the Tri-Glide.

The Polaris slingshot was fun for a little bit.

Always looked fun, but I don’t think I could get in it. It would seem more like I was putting it on.
