Tour Easy Has Arrived!!!!

I went to have a look at a Easy Racer (Tour Easy) yesterday and well, I ended up loading in the back of my truck. I got a super deal from a great guy. I took it for a 20 mile ride when I got it home and love it.

Gorgeous bike. It should be a blast and a half to ride. Put lots of miles on it.

Good move. Looking forward to reports on your experience with this 2 wheeled limousine. I am especially interested your assesment of the pros/cons of the fairing.

Well, so far this bike is just amazing! It is stable, fast, and soooooo comfortable and I can't find one negative thing about it.

Now for the fairing, I love it. I've done 60 miles with it, and 20 without it, and the miles with it were (or seemed) faster especially down hill. The one thing I did not care for with the fairing was the noise. You can hear all the road noise and vibration echoing through the fairing. I solved the problem by making new fork mount for it which took 10 minutes and $2.00 worth of material. Now it is silent as a mouse, and I would not ride without it. Not that it's bad without the fairing, but once you try it your hooked. If your considering one do not hesitate, you will like it. Here is a picture of the mounts I made. All they are is the end sections of a bungee cord, and work like a charm.
