+1 on this. Wrap fender would eliminate the "flip" at the end of the stock one. My 2 cents. I think a lot of us are trying to live our future trike mods(those headed in that direction) through you. LOL

I've started pricing pieces for the winter. Teolling ebay for take offs. I'm hoping in the spring to roll it out as a SharkWheeler.

Dunlop Signature P205/65R15 are stock. And grippy as a mofo.

I dont mind taking point on the trike adventure. it's fun. And I appreciate y'all following along.

The 9 day trip us what I'm really looking forward to.

I packed the truck to see how it fits. All my camping gear and rain gear fit. Which leaves my Ultra tourbag for clothes and souvenirs. Plenty of room. More that the RG had on my last trip. (Pre tourpak)

Best takeaway from this post is seeing that the change has been a good one. Figure I'll have to do that someday too..hopefully I am as fortunate. Thanks for sharing it man

Spent a while watching the 2019 Freewheeler reviews on youtube. And the guys that say it's a hoot to ride, a stop sign burner and a three wheel hot rod. They're right on. My 114 tips. But ya know. The wifes 103 with the stage one rips too. These things handle so well it's crazy. One video had a really experienced trike rider. He explained that in a turn use the momentum of your body to turn the trike. If your going to the right lock your left arm and go. The force on your body pushes you left which then steers the trike without any real effort. I'll post a link to his ride review. It makes a lot of sense. On a short ride you'll criticize the trike. But you have to give it time and hes dead on. The more I'm on this. The more I love it. I'm at 3000 miles in 5 weeks. Just had breakfast 60 miles from home and am on my way to get lost in the Allegheny Mountains of western PA.

I think the miles you've put on despite all the other stuff you've had going on in your life is testament to how much you're enjoying the new ride. Good deal.
