I am pretty sure that the back seat would be affected if you reclined the seats. Sure, it might still have as much room, but do you want to ride with the driver's seat in your lap?

Too bad it can't be adjustable. Recline more for top range and efficiency, or sit upright for comfort.

The reverse trike we built was reclined as much as possible which was dictated by the need to clear the rear motor height, which was not much.

Way ahead of ya. Remove the upper cage and replace it with a monocoque shell over the backbone frame, move the footbrake to the back and invert the handlebars. Single saddle seat. Add a fourth wheel for certain racing classes.

Millions of people fly in coach every day. Why get so snobby all of a sudden on the ground?

... and as I'm always saying, if someone is in the rear seat of my vehicle, they are getting a free ride. You can't complain about a free ride.

Have I mentioned my sister? When I had my Subaru she asked for a ride and when I picked her up I got out and told her to drive.
"No."
"Come on, drive."
"No."
So, I drove, and she complained constantly about my driving.

She asked me to pick her up when I was driving my Civic.
"Your car sucks."
"What's wrong with it?" thinking that I would fix it before the stuff that I was planning.
"It sucks."

I gave a ride to my girlfriend's friend once. Seeing my car for the first time she said "you expect me to ride in that?". I said "yes, now get in".




...wait, this isn't one of your threads Xist? You're worse better than me at completely changing the thread topic.

It looks like Nathan Fillion has traded up from his SRK. (1:10)

Bucky Fuller always said it's about the tools that make the tools. The AMP (Advanced Manufacturing Plant) is probably as important as their first vehicle.
