No, just perplexed as to why anyone would want a tricycle with a motor?!

Because it's the best and easiest way to run over your own leg!

I had a couple growing up. Had lots of fun riding them and some good spills too. Wouldnt hesitate to have another one either. I did have to do some re-learning when I started riding motorcycles...

Not scared, but I definitely have some oh shit moments in my memory bank.
My research when I was much younger indicated that it's best to hit jumps dead on square and avoid sharp turns unless you are pouring the coals to it and on soft terrain.

Not scared
I had one when I was a kid and my dad still has it running. I picked these up from a guy who had 2 atc 90's and 2 atc 110's in poor condition. Working on getting them running. Had to use parts from 2 to get a 110 running. Still working on getting a 90 running.

We love to ride em on two wheels. (wheeling or sideways)

I rode my friend's when I was a kid, he was like be careful they flip easy, So I took it out and after a while I was doing doughnuts on 2 wheels in a dirt parking lot. Not scared to see one, but I understand why they did away with em, too many noobs getting hurt. They require skill and discipline to ride fast without flipping. Too much work for most people I guess.

My last experience with one of these, it saved my life... from a drunken redneck with a shotgun and differing opinions about where a property line was.
