Nice but not so good if you are sat in the righthand seat, unless you have a very narrow bum.

I was in contact with Pete Larson back in the day prior to the buyout of the ace & before the M3W was developed and even looked at bringing one into the uk but the cost then was prohibitively expensive- I'd still love to have one though.

Pete Larsen used a trailing arm (from a Honda Goldwing I think) for the rear tire's engineering. This avoided the future M3W's Bevel Box issues but made the right hand seat smaller and wedge shaped; would have never been marketable as a RHD that way IMO. In the US, where butts are too big, and we would sit on the larger left seat, this was probably a good thing; passenger just needs a tiny 'pizza shaped' rear!

Hmmmm, how would my wife react to a second expensive and impractical toy? "But honey, I WAS a good boy this year and Santa brought IT to ME; not my fault, I swear!"

I think she might swear too!!!

Here is a side by...

The Triking with the Moto Guzzi configuration suffers the same right hand miniature butt bottom requirement.

It's still a bunch of fun, however...
