say, have any of the burgman rides ever seen or know of the 3 wheel motorcycles that have the 2 wheels in front? i'm looking for either websites kits or units for sale. if anyone on this site has information on these please let me know. thanks a bunch. bp.

update on the radio! i have the speakers installed awaiting the hidden radio. got the drivers back rest covered and waiting for summer to drive in comfort. one thing i noticed with my bike is the colder weather causes the bike to tend moving at idle. i'm thinking that the cold weather cause the idle to increase a bit this makes the clutch start to engage. any other riders experence this in the cold weather? thanks bp.

Sighting in Tallahassee, FL.

I just saw one of these in town yesterday. Thay are cool looking, but I imagine you give up the thrill that is gotten from the 2 wheeled experience. I'll stick with a Burgie. :p

The Morgan three wheeler was build back in the twenties and early thirties. The early models had a v-twin engine mounted exposed in the front. A fellow in Connecticut owns one. He used to drive it to Marcus Dairy where hundreds of motorcyclists meet on Sunday mornings. The valve rockers on top of the cylinders were exposed - you could see them operate. This machine was also active in racing.

You can see some pictures here. Google "morgan three" for more.

thanks for the information so far. keep it coming!. i saw a 3 wheeled car/motorcycle the other day called a t-rex it was way cool. has anyone seen one of these machine around?

to answer the cold question. not cold enough to snow. 40 deg or so. when i start the bike and try to push it out of the garage backwards it was hard to do then i shut it off and it pushed easy. i just figure the engine is runnig a bit faster and making the clutch engage just a bit.

I used to be a bit of a Guzzi fan, and had a go in a kit car that used the Guzzi engine in a sort of Morgan look-a-like body. Fun to drive and suprisingly stable in corners, but to reverse you had to get out and push it backwards... I couldn't justify it though as it would just be another toy taking up space in the garage!
