          If I were to ever get myself another cycle I would definitely have the Can Am on my short list.

            Nice....I've seen many cruising and looks like a blast. Always wondered, do you push left to corner left like on 2 wheeler, or does dual front wheels change that?

                Nice, Doug! That's just what I want if I'm ever going to try one of the motorized bikes . . . long story behind my fear of them.

                  Personally I do not fear motorcycles. I love to ride but with all the distracted drivers on the roads nowadays I prefer to have some steel or (In the case of Ford Trucks) around me. My last bike was a 1987 Honda Goldwing. What a great ride. One night coming home from work I came across a cross road. I had the blinking yellow. I saw a car headed in my direction on the other road that driver had blinking red. When riding a motorcycle one has to develop a 6th sense. You really have to be aware of what is going on around you.

                  Anyway something in my 6th sense told me that car was not going to stop at the red light so I slowed down. Sure enough that car ran right through the red light like it was not even there. Had I not slowed down I would not be here now. I got home, told the wife about my close call. I decided then and there to sell the bike. Sad day but I felt it was in the best interest of my family that I stop riding. This was 1989, I have not ridden since. Still miss it.

                    I had a Gold Wing in he late 70's and sold it for much the same reason. I have had several off and on since then.
                    You lean just the opposite of a regular bike. If you lean at all. It seems to be better than a trike. Steers easier than a trike that can surprise you how hard they are to turn at a little speed. This one has power steering so that is easy.
