Only 10ah at that size! Do they contain hamsters in wheels? I do like the mounting though.
Glad the wonder is still there and you are still learning/enjoying the experience.I'm equally sure that mastering those improvements will be well worth it as the smiles per mile are way in excess of anything-else I've built (so far). Anyone with ideas in their head should get them out of there and into steel.
Depends how you measure it. In distance, probably small. In enjoyment, it's probably most of it.However how much of a ride is cornering compare with riding in a straight-ish line ?
I'm of a similar mind. For me , a big part is in the "fun of tilting". I bought my first motorcycle in 1961 (a used 250cc BSA) and I have always loved the feeling of tilting in corners at higher speeds.Depends how you measure it. In distance, probably small. In enjoyment, it's probably most of it.
I hope the pain recedes and the bruises/scrapes fade ASAP.My daughter has a Kuga which just about swallows it. It's the 2nd time she's got me home after the BMS died a week ago. The battery maker fixed it without any fuss. A 72 year old cyclist stopped and enquired about my misfortune which passed the time awaiting recovery. It could have been a lot worse. At least the chap behind me in a van stopped and shielded me whilst I hauled it over the armco onto the path and I wasn't thrown under anything. The "twinge" in my back is giving me a lot more grief now than it did at the time. Ah the joys of bouncing down the road in your dotage! I thought my bouncing days were behind me by now! I distinctly remember I used to bounce better than this.
But as it's a tilting trike surely this plays to their strengths?I've bought a pair of Sun Black Label rims like the picture above. They are arguably among the strongest that exist, though like every rim are designed to be strong on a bike not a trike.
