    We have enough problems on the road without importing it in the shape of these bikes, trikes dont corner too well as the suspension geometry is out of whack on such cheap products and to only have a five litre fuel tank, means they are more for show than go. LOL

    Hey Pyrah are you thinking of replacing your electric trike hehehehehe, I dont think they let this type on footpaths hehehehehe LOLIdea

    Re: Chinese trikes

    Now thats what i call a good trike brings back memories when my father took us bush /hunting on his ww11 harley and sidecar actually it was just a box on a frame with the third wheel stuck on. and we all survived the ride without helmets , jackets etc. we just pulled the tarp over us when it rained. I remember clearly sitting on the petrol tank going bush till my father was pulled over and told it was not the done thing in Australia lol. now with all the laws ,cameras, safety gear etc we have people wiping themselves out everyday. this did not happen when we were kids. I feel the reason why is today we let others be responsible for us and to do our thinking for us ie TAC takes the worry out of hitting someobne or being injured as they foot the bill, in my fathers day they accepted their responsibility for themselves and the family and drove appropiately as they new the cost of an accident very well. Bugger, sorry folks thought it was Sunday not Saturday LOL Zip it! off the soap box hehehehe.

    I reckon you are spot on.  At the recent Motorcycle and Scooter Safety Forum, they talked for hours about gear, about road surfaces, road barriers, ABS etc.  The reality is that the most important piece of safety gear that you have is the thing between your ears, and instead of trying to look for external things to take responsibility for your safety, you need to take that responsibility yourself.  Do that and the world WILL be a safer place.

    Re: Chinese trikes

    Nico has a point i havent ridden an ugly trike in Europe and for me this is has been 3 consecutive weeks on summer tour around some of the most outragious and demanding in northern italy roads from the 38degree climbs in northern alps of switzerland with black ice still prominant tell ya what big balls and all without the precise geometry principals designed with these road legal trikes these balls would certainly be frozen meat balls.so lets educate this forum as it so happens these hire trikes are  manufactured in china and in UE must meet VCA approvals as EEC approved what this means lads is you get an aggressive 250cc watercooled 4 stroke that has gas oiled adjustable shocks with preload and rebound settings for my fat *** throw in a couple of toe-in negative degree camber adjustments and you get a package that got me thru some insane passes...yes lads i now own a Chinese trike and it is now parked up at numb nuts place in UE ready for my next assault
