Cabin fever

Does this winter seem a bit Long? I'm Ready to ride. I took the Silverwing on an 80 mile run Last Saturday. The temperature was in the 40,s but it felt so good to be out riding again as the snow and Ice has made the road slick. Sunday Night It snowed again here in Ohio and the forecast will not be melting this stuff soon. I have been thinking of trucking to Florida and ride to Key west for a ride in the sun.

Maybe you could use a cabin scooter . . . with heater/demister?

Stir crazy

Hey! I could replace the dome light in one of those things with a bulb from the tanning salon, and I'd never have to leave Michigan!

I hear you, Windburn. It's 18 degrees here right now, and I'm really ready for Spring to arrive....

I saw one of these westbound on 520 on Tuesday. Ten bucks says some Microsoftie was driving it.

I was told that the tango comes from India.

I believe THAT particular one was an experimental linked to a Swiss sidecar-building company. There is no indication that the tilting threewheeler project ever received funding. I cannot find the relevant webpage.

Details: Frontwheel Drive with forward section pivoting from rear twowheel module which includes trunk.
