Well, I did it. After researching trikes for about three months, I decided on TT and their products. The Rover fit the bill for what I was looking for and I made the purchase last Saturday(11/5/11). I purchased my Rover from one of TT's dealers in Olathe, Ks. The folks at Bike America couldn't have been more helpful. Jeremy, Brian, and Cameron were outstanding and it was nice to see customer service is alive and well at this store especially from three young people. I have already put 22 miles on my Rover. My first ride was only 7 miles but I tackled a 15 mile ride today. Lots of hills but the Rover did great. Ocassionaly there would be a slip in the gears but it was probably the operator. I'm looking forward to building up the mileage to get back into better physical condition. I'm 59 and am excited again to have something I can do to get my heart rate up and get rid of these extra pounds I'm carrying around. Thanks for all the good info on the forum. It helped me make my decision.
