This is my first post in a couple of years. I sold my place in the country and rented a Tiny Texas House just a few hundred yards from where I was living. In the interim, I sold and/or gave away all my bikes, trikes and building supplies. Just a phase of my life completed and I’m moving on to other things.
I don’t want to get back into bike building nor do I have the space for that now. I have missed riding and from time to time I have been checking Craigslist for a trike that might be in my price range. Last week there was a listing for a 2012 TerraTrike Tour that I thought might fill that void. The Tour is a relatively lightweight trike with good handling and a sporty feel. After a couple of email exchanges, the Tour was mine.
After picking it up I offered my grandsons a ride in a nearby parking lot. They confirmed it was fast and handled well and they would visit often for a ride.
At 72, like Toby Kieth song says, I’m not as “Good as I once was“. . . you know the rest. I knew I needed a little help and after doing some research, UPS delivered a Bafang 750 watt mid drive and 52 v 14 ah battery. I’ll get the mid drive installed today and my son is coming tomorrow to help tweak it out and get all the bits and pieces mounted and working.
Test ride report coming soon. YaHoooooooooooooooo.
