Please allow me to introduce myself

I'm a rider from Benicia Ca, that's east of Frisco and west of Sacramento , I ride a Rans rocket recumbent or a Trek CF 5200 road machine, I also have a specialized rock hopper for trails and ride a KTM 200 (motorcycle) for heavy duty rides across the desert.

I'm thinking of buying a greenspeed trike(bent tandem) some day so i can take my wife riding without having to spend most of the day waiting for her to catch up. I like to eat a lot of food and riding helps keep me from getting to fat. thats my intro.

If you and yours visit the Monterey Peninsula, you may want to rent a Greenspeed tandem trike there at:
http://www.Abent4rent.com/

I don't own the business, but I know the owner. The trike is only a month old. My apologies if the plug violates forum rules but I just thought bentboy might want to know...

BTW, I ride an Optima Lynx and a Specialized Stumpie.

Welcome!

Eddie

With that list of bikes and motorcycles I guess you could use the "biker" addage of "two wheels good, four wheels bad".

Welcome to the forum and lets see some pics please. I love those old British bikes as well as the non-motorized versions.

Yup, I know the place. I even detoured through there once out of curiosity, because my maternal grandfather was born there in 1892.
