Boss Hoss Trike August 20, 2012

Since I have 100 blogs, I can't start a new one.  Tacked this in front of an old blog so I could send the pictures to the new owner of this beautiful machine!

Was asked by a "Friend of a Friend" in Canada to check out this little trike.  The Victory Motorcycle/Hyundai Car dealership had a flood last week, Plumbing leak that put about 2 inched of water inside the show room and offices. So, it was a bit of a hassle getting this bike out for me to test ride today

Sort of plain in back, but VERY nice.  A large custom built Mustang seat with backrests

I did a "walk around" to get sort of familiar with it.

Trike is a Boss Hoss.  A built 350 Chevy engine, fuel injection, and puts out 385 hp.  Has enough power to get you down the street.

The picture doesn't do justice in showing you massive the tank is!

The shifter was a little hard to figure out.  Good thing these is a gear indicator on the dash.  You have to push up and down and forward and backward.  The rider backrest isn't installed, but it goes in a slot between the rider and passenger

Very nice instrumentation.

Very comfortable seat

Rode it home to go over it good.  It dwarfs the Harley, which you can't even see.  It's parked right in front of the trike :-)

Pat has an excellent eye for detail, so she helped look it over.  And found the few small blemishes before I did.

Only 3 places where there is a paint problem

Not real noticeable in the big picture, but here's another one

Not being "picky", these shots are for the new owner so he'll know what to expect

Road the bike about 15 miles.  LOTS of fun!

Fits nicely in the garage with the other 3!  Think I NEED this bike! :-)

After finding reverse, it was backed  to the front of the house

Noticed this little blemish on the tank, but it can be buffed out, it's not through the paint

AZ doesn't have a helmet law, but the dealer's insurance requires one to be worn on test rides.  They loaned me this "bucket"

My turn around point up Stockton Hill Road.  Was able to test throttle response and brakes.  It also has air ride suspension, so I played with that too.

The last of only 3 blemishes we found, right on the tip of the fender

Burn in the seat.  Not all the way through the vinyl.

5600 miles is all that's on this trike.  It's beautiful and runs great!  If it was something I wanted, I think it would be well worth buying.  Either to ride or as an investment for re-sale.
