I own an oldish m5 28/20; a Dutch recumbent, also called a 'Streetlegal', still a pleasure to ride.
But may favourite now is the Open Waterbike. Ever tried recumbent bicycling on water? Some of the feelings are the same, some are completely new. The position is more comfortable, since you can sit higher than the crank axis. Cranking feels slightly different, you need to get used to it, but smooth (no hills there..) and pleasant enough. Also, you can make different encounters, see picture...
I started a new collective project to diffuse recumbent waterbiking in a new fashion, it's called 'The Open Waterbike Project. Just believed you could be interested...
