Even though some comfort improvements for year-round driving may be desirable to convince most folks to take a look into trikes as an option, mostly owners of older vehicles already non-compliant to modern safety and emission standards, sometimes it may become too expensive to justify.

New local article from Willamette Week on Arcimoto.

He lives with two roommates in a small bungalow strewn with Buddhist prayer flags in the unglamorous "flats" of Eugene with his dog Keira.
That's a really odd way for a writer for Willamette Week to describe The Whiteaker. Must be from the South Hills. I remember when Mark Murphy lived in the South Hills next to my landlord at the time. I visited the garage where he was making Bug-E kits for Electrathon racing.
