Default Fun on 3 wheels<---my vac.w/ pics



Got to give it up for the 3-wheelers! So much fun to mess around on, That blue one there is my new toy a 85 Yamaha 225 w/reverse 3wheeler, got it off one of my old girlfriends fathers who'* a cop actually, he first got it and rebuilt the motor for high compression and did a little over haul last year with intensions on taking it hunting during the winter and the high compression motor won't run below 0. so he takes his other 3 wheeler a 82 Honda 200 which ran no problem, he just wanted more power than the honda. So he sold it to me for $500 what a steal, he knows its worth +/-$1,000 but thats what he had into and hes a nice guy so SOLD to the man with the Bonneville!
He lets me borrow his honda any time. just got to take the gun rack off Oh and I live in the chicago burbs, not/any where to ride this things unfortuntitly. Oh my Yamaha is shaft driven, not chain driven like most atv'* and motorcycles, great for sand dune riding, not sand gets in the chain, cause there isn't one.

85 Yamaha DRN225
82 Honda ATC200



My girlfriends family owns a cabin in Michigan with 80 acres of woods and trails. Perfect place to ride. They have a old Honda 110 three wheeler up there, probably what got me started with this. Also they have 2 beater Jeep wranglers to go off roading in. Bad A$$ time when the jeep owners are up there with us. Off roading at all hours. So thats why I brought the three wheelers up there, got plenty of train to rip it up in, some trails and the rest is tree knocking down time. they hop fallen down trees pretty good too.





Its a work horse too, got a tow ball on it, hook up a trailer and go get some wood. Pictured my girlfriends youngest brother Johnny, he'* hilarious.



So yeah, I like three wheeling, it'* a blast, it was a great first vacation up there with both tikes, planing on 2 more trips up there this year. Bad news was that day before I left to come here my SSEi got into a little fender bender. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=36438


Give it up for the three wheelers ladies and gents.

Even four wheelers can be dangerous (I almost caused a crash on one once...and I was just riding).

Yeah but 3-wheelers are notoriously more dangerous than a 4 wheeler...there'* a reason they are no longer produced.
