1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

How about a "look what I found" thread??

    Pretty sure I read the Americans discussing them recently, their govt banned them from sale, apparently they don't turn at all but at least the 250 had enough poke to powerslide it round corners...

    Well they can turn, but you have to weight the outside peg and lift the inside rear, then rail that balance point on the front and outer wheel. Easy as, not... but that's how they work, quads are similar, though they generally just run off the track instead of throwing you headfirst off the track.

    I used to love riding my 3 wheeler. Never came off.
    One of the big reasons that people came off is they were never taught (or figured out) that they have to be ridden differently, depending on what speed you were doing...…. if you put your weight to the outside while going faster, of course you're going to bloody roll it. SLOW= lean out. FAST= lean in. Pretty much the same at sidecars in reliability trials.

    Don’t start that Bruce. I copped a flogging from your mate @Catz just recently over the motard thing. I may do one or two tarders at the MVTC next year if I can get the 450 sorted.

    I almost didn't bother posting it because I didn't think it would last more than 15 mins...

    Thanks Fongy - I was worried I didn't get any "replies" for my joke so I was thinking about starting a Thread about it.

    You've just saved me the trouble. :-)
