Sue and I were eating a picnic lunch at one of the rest stops along the Illinois river when a gentleman rode up on his 3-wheeled Motorbike. This had to be the slickest thing I have seen in a long time. It is custom made by Thoroughbred Motors and this model is call a Stallion. When we admired his ride he introduced himself as David from McAlester Oklahoma and told he was on his way back home after picking up the nifty trailer he had ordered custom made from the dealer up in Afton. We did not have to encourage him very much to tell us all about it.
The drive train is all made and maintained by Ford. It has a 4 cylinder engine, 4 speed automatic that gets 45 miles to the gallon, heat, air conditioning(!), and a fine stereo sound system. I think it has other features but I can't remember them all. David is a scuba diving instructor and he showed us how all his gear will fit in the trunk of the trike and in the new trailer. He was very proud of his rig. He said that after riding it for 300 miles during the day he had decided to have a new seat fitted with gel foam for comfort. He seemed like a very nice fellow.
After he rode off I commented to Susan that David was likely to be single. How do you know she asked. Well, he has a custom made tricycle and trailer, he spends his time traveling and scuba diving and he looks very happy. No wife would let him get away with that. Then is when Susan slapped me.
