    ... when they see this? (Poor judgement while riding one of these beasts as a kid)

    I know I sure do!

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

    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.

    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.
