    welcome to the world of easy wheelies and riding on two wheels in sharp turns.

    be careful. they were banned for a reason.

    Retarded kids everywhere ruined it for the rest of us. I never rolled the 1981 Honda 70cc monster I rode around on from probably 9-14 years old. I mean I did flip it once but that was while doing a hardcore wheelie to impress the new kid in the neighborhood's hot mom. Needless to say, I got nowhere. But I got back on the mofo and rode home just fine.

    I grew up riding them bastards, if you know how to ride one youll be fine, it was the dumbasses who just thought they could hope on one an go anywhere that screwed it up. The 200x is a good bike, we had 2 of them at one point and a little ATC 110. The 200s are pretty bullet proof machines.

    they were banned, like most things, beause of stupid asshats ruining it for the rest of the world.

    instead of passing helmet/gear laws, they banned the triek, taking it away from everyone. gay. america blows.

    They really didnt "ban" them, its just the 4 wheeled model came out and was a way better design and everyone could ride one, people still got fucked up on quads too but overall they are a way better and easier machine to ride than their 3 wheeled counter parts.

    congress enacted a 10 year ban on sales of 3 wheelers in 1988 after some people got injured and a few people died... knee jerk reactionary ruling at its finest

    heres an article about it from back then

    so youre upset that instead of passing a stupid law to force us to protect us from ourselves, they passed a stupid law to force us to protect us from ourselves

    nothing tips over more easily than a 2 wheeled motorcycle. oddly millions are sold every year.

    i guess honda and kawi didn't buy out the right congressmen to keep the 3 wheeler around.

    I don't know what you're talking about "fix the looks up". That thing looks immaculate. Nice score.
