Sweet!

A pic of the kids grinning w/ Dad would be great. Should be easy to get b/c I'll bet they're grinning all the time in that thing.

NICE! Looks great with the rocket. How's the trunk size on that badboy? Seems small relative to the rig but then again everything looks small sitting next to a rocket.

tire size for R3

Hey kailuasurfer....... Very nice indeed, Importing from the UK is quite a endeavor. I admire your stamina and determination ,and it looks like it payed off big time. I ordered a Hedingham XL back in 02 and I think I aged ten years before it arrived. Like yours mine is also on a Rocket 3 and is a hoot to drive. The R3 may be one of the best tugs for pulling a heavy S/C and lots of weight ie: trailers and passenger's and dogs. Glad to see your getting use to it before you put all the family in it.
Enjoy and ride safe with the kid's and family.
btw....... what size is the front tire on the rig ? been thinking of trying a car tire on the front mine for better tire life. The tire on the back > 205 x 60/16 < works out to about 25k before between changes. Thanks again for posting and good luck with your new rig.

I understand that I posted an old weblink to Ad's website. Here's the correct one (also updated in the original post).

I was delighted to find out that I could just use the same wheels for the car tire conversion. I am using 225-50-16 for the rear and 175-55-17 for the front. I suspect I may have problems finding the front tire...

Quite cavernous - I will post a picture of it later. The long nose area also offers quite a bit of storage space.

Apologies for the low quality picture - taken in a garage with my phone...

Shows two helmets in it for perspective:

Also have 2 kinds - seatbelts are a good option to better secure them otherwise they tend to slide during cornering.
Daddy likes those corners!!!
