Here's my Sun EZ Sport that I'm selling to pay for the very lightly used Tour Easy Expedition model I just bought. Bullet proof, reliable, and comfortable. I'm going to miss the old steed!

Just not acting right this morning. Uploaded photo riding an Optima Rider trike 2 times and both times it uploaded and vanished. If you can find it; enjoy.

2010 We-Wrecks as it stands now.
I`ve only been bent for a few months (July?). Cause I read so much about them before I was able to try one, I was pretty sure I knew exactly what I was getting into. Nope- much different than I had expected. Some for the better, some for the worse. Over all, I think it`s a lot of fun, but DFs are still my main rides. Good thing I don`t have to choose
