    I bought a 2002 orange trike 2 years ago with 16000 miles on it and it said it was an ultatrike conversion kit.I neaver heard of that kit but I bought it anyway because it was in such good shape along with a very good price!After getting it home and doing some research I was pleasantly surprised that it was a roadsmith kit before the company changed their name from ulta trike to roadsmith.I have neaver seen another kit that is designed like mine especially the luggage door.The door opens from right to left instead of opening top to bottom.The trike rides and handles great and my wife and I are blessed to be able to ride 12 months a year,7months in Ohio and the winter months in Florida

    Default I,m new to this but here goes.

    I bought a Honda Goldwing with a Roadsmith trike conversion about three weeks ago and wahoooo I believe this is the most fun you can have and keep your clothes on. The trip to get the trike was an adventure in itself I live outside of Wilmington NC and the trike was in northeast Kentucky about 10 miles from getting to the trike got into an accident and totaled the trailer I was going to haul the trike on. So after a couple of hours made it to the trike and it was love at first site only second time that has happened to me, first time was/is with my wife of 43 yrs.

    No trailer, so the first time I sat on it rode it over 300 miles got up the next morning and went to Hendersonville NC to Schroeder Honda those people are AWESOME they put a new front tire and changed the oil, the trike is a 2003 model with 3024 miles on it when I picked it up, so i was pretty nervous about that front tire seeing how it was the original. went on a nice ride and went back to the cabin and came into Wilmington the next morning. The trike is absolutely beautifully the color is illusion blue. I discovered wing stuff, now I have a backrest my wife has armrests and Goldie (that's the trikes name) has a tastefully amount of bling.

    The previous owner was 77 and just never rode her much but swore she had never slept outside,it is in amazing condition. when I got back to Wilmington I noticed that a coil spring had broken and the fuel transfer pump was not working so I reached out to Marvin at Roadsmith and he hooked me up so everything is good now. I knew that I wanted to buy Roadsmith from all the research that I done. I've put over 1200 miles on it so far couldn't ride it with the broken coil but will be adding to the mileage now.

    My first bike was a super 90 Honda then a CB 350 then a 550 still have a 900 CB custom that is all but showroom clean. If there is anyone in the Wilmington area or Brevard NC area looking for people to ride with please reach out. That's it for now RIDE ON AND ON

    Default Never I thought that I would ever say this . . .

    . . . but I'm lovin' life on 3 wheels! After accumulating over 500,000 safe miles on Gold Wing 2-wheelers, back in July of 2018, we purchased a 2007 GL1800 with a 2018 Roadsmith HTS1800 kit. My only previous experience with 3 wheels was a brief swap 'n ride on a friend's Hannigan Tri-Car a bunch of years ago. For those unfamiliar with a Tri-Car, it is a hybrid trike / sidecar unit.

    Anyway, my real introduction to triking was the return trip from Alabama to Fredericksburg, VA, with my wife following me in our motor home. I had an awesome trip! Aside from a mild case of "Dunass" from the stock Honda seat; I was totally comfortable, despite being 2-weeks from getting a left knee replacement. I am amazed at the handling, and smooth ride, and the ease of steering with the 5 1/2* raked triple trees.

    The best part, and I didn't fully realize this until we were home and I was recovering from my knee surgery, . . . I love to ride pillion and let Momma do the driving! She loves it too! It is really easy for me to just nod off and catch a few bugs while she is back in her glory, riding (driving?) again (it's been about 10 years since she had me sell her GL1500).

    We couldn't be happier! We love it so much that we sold the motor home and bought a new toy hauler and a new Ram 2500 pickup w/Cummins diesel to tow it, so we don't have to ever leave home without her. The trike's name is "Wind Therapy v5.0" (my 5th Gold Wing), but I'm thinking about calling her American Express ("AMEX" for short) .

    Thank you Kevin . . . thank you Trike Shop and Roadsmith. We feel truly blessed to finally have the right combo for what we want to do with our future! Travel and ride wherever / whenever!

    Best regards,
