Today is my wife's birthday, and also the day we will take our first trike ride together. It's a beautiful summer day here in upstate NY.
I've owned a Rambler since May, and just found a used Rover to purchase earlier this week. My wife has enjoyed taking the Rambler for a spin around the block, but today will be her first time on the Rover. (It's not really a birthday present, but the timing is serendipitous.). I'm hoping this is a good experience - I would so love for this to be an activity we both enjoy.
My wife is not a fan of the color orange, so she seems to prefer the Rover to the Rambler on aesthetic grounds. But if she enjoys triking, I may have to see if I can find one of the old green Ramblers.
On a side note, does anyone else think it is strange to name something to be marketed to boomers "Rambler"? I think the Terratrike staff must be too young to remember the low-budget, low-quality automobile of the 1960's. I remember - not fondly - my family's 1963 Rambler station wagon with the push-button transmission. I like my Rambler trike more every day than I liked that car any day.
I'll let you know about our experience today on the bike path. Happy riding to all of you!
