You know Robert, I have been thinking about converting my present Honda 500 into something like the Gurney Alligator, then adding a third wheel off to one side. This has been on my mind since the Spring of 2007, when the gas first got to $3.50 per gallon.

The object here is two-fold...

1) Provide a motorcycle platform with unparalleled slipperyness for maximum fuel mileage.
2) Provide a third wheel for those days when sidewinds would make you think twice about riding a streamliner with only two wheels.

I may just do something like this after updating the Insight further.

Jim.
