And who writes transmission programs for 3 wheeled, 2 wheel drive, 1 wheel steered vehicles?? They are a strange breed for sure.

Side Effects
I have been there (doing a wheelie taking off from the line with my current rig)...
Chopped the throttle very quickly to bring the front end back down to prevent a ground loop!!!
(pulled VERY hard to the left)

I think that a 2wd rig with a limited slip diff. would drive a little bit straighter with the front end light, but don't have any direct evidence to back that up.
For an adventure rig I wouldn't want to rely too much on electronic controls but would rather do things mechanically. Just my personal bias.

The Triumph rig looks killer!!!
Great job!
