i> Away With The Fairies.: Trikes are for Pussy's.

Trikes are for Pussy's.

In a recent episode of Monster Garage, show host Jessie James, when asked to make a bike out of Peterbuilt truck parts declaired, "Trikes are for pussy's."
I thought, he had no idea just how big a 14 litre engine is. When the engine was removed he backed down and decided to build a trike.

This is what I call a trike. Just because the single wheel is in the front doesn't mean it can't kick ass on the track. These trikes, ridden two up, are amongst the fastest hill climb vehicles there are, even when compared with monoposto style specialist vehicles fitted with F1 car engines subsequently fitted with superchargers.
Most of the two wheel racers declair, "You wouldn't get me up in one of those things!"

dont start me on jesse james' sellout, wife-beating ass. oh lordy jesus. seen the sad, sad joke that is his latest endeavor? 'Garage'
magazine, a soy-inked blatant attempt to co-opt soCal rockabilly-biker culture and market it until it cries rape, with it's 'ING' dropping, ghost-written attempts at lowbrow lit.
plus the little bitch now shills for FUCKING OLD MILWAUKIE BEER. what a joke.
the beer that made milwaukie synonymous with 'unemployed, low normal, born without toenails'. carbonated pee in a can.
so yeah.
jesse james.

It’s for big boys who’ve graduated from their Big Wheels.

'Twould appear to me old thing, that "First Nations" isn't exactly a fan of this Jesse James.....(now where have I heard that name before???)It's just a feeling I have, perhaps I'm psychic??

These trikes are all very well Ticks, but how do they measure up against the Plastic Pig I wonder??

Jessie- I don't know much about him except he comes across as a twatty control freak with limited design imagination. The show where he turned a Delorian into a hover craft was like turning a TV into a foodmixer. No sense what so ever. Untimately the most efficient solution from both a function and time perspective was to decorate the hover to look like a Delorian. Jessie insisted they stick the hover bits onto the car and sacked someone. Consequently the project, literally, never got off the ground. He is forever saying the teams can do what ever they want, and then he insists they do it his way.

MJ- My parents couldn't afford a trike when I was a kid. One of my half brothers built a trike soap box racer and my love afair started. I actually managed to get 'nicked' for dangerous driving in it.

Fewclewz- Pig. Better than Jessie's and not as good as Peter short and Vickey's racer. Incidently, Vickey donated her old Grifter bike to my daughter Little Miss.
However, I reckon the Reliant Rialto would kick all their arses on the Tesco's run.

I'd have a go on a trike on a hill climb. But I wouldn't like to be the monkey.

I know I've left myself wide open on that comment but Ticks knows what I mean.

Apart from those who fall off. I've seen a pillion change sides and miss the foot rest. Foot went into the inside of the rear wheel and all her skin came off like a sock.
