Any way you slice it, still cheaper than that Can-Am Spyder. http://www.can-am.brp.com/
- All set with those - they get their stability from a NIGHTMAREISH labyrinth of computers, sensors and wiring. No thanks! I ride motorcycles to get away from all that horseshit! Gimme a real trike any day.
If that was mine, I'd do the black duct-tape repair. $6.
I can't believe how much all your necessary tools and products cost Rick -- my buddy does that on the side, and just purchasing a pint of paint and everything we needed to do my RD350 cost a fortune! I couldn't believe it. I could afford it at the time though. Sandpaper is INSANE. It's quadroupled in price since I last bought it.
I think your estimate might be a little LOW!
