I think that guy might have more natural talent than anyone I have ever seen ride a 3-wheeler. Maybe Honda should hire him to replace Ben for the East Region.

Bigcountry,
Yeah you have to admit the guy has skills for launching the step up. He also had the step on step off dialed.

Thanks for watching, gang.

That is a cool 3-wheeler. If I'm not mistaken that would be a 1986 Honda 350X. Those were bad, bad machines in the day. I know this because I grew up riding a 1983 Honda 200X, the little brother to that ATC. Those things seem silly now, but in the day they were pimp. Most 3 wheelers didn't have "real" suspension then, but both of those did. So that made them ultra cool. We finally sold our '83 200X in 2000 for $500. It still had good plastic, working lights, original gas tank, etc. That same 3-wheeler in that condition now would be worth probably a couple thousand dollars since they have gotten so hard to find now. Duh!! Those things were more advanced than people give them credit for too. The brake calipers and pads are the same ones still used on Honda's 400EX quad today and the Yamaha Warrior. Plus they had the same transmition pattern as modern day dirt bikes. I know this is making me sound like a redneck, but it brings back fond childhood memories. I loved riding that thing. My Dad liked it too (technically it was his) because it had a perfect length on the wheelbase... perfect to fit in the corn head on the front of our combine. Yeah I just said that. Dad would toss it into the corn head and drive the combine to the field. Then all he had to do was lower the head and drag the 3-wheeler out. Now he had a ride to get back home and get the grain truck, or whatever else he needed. How's that for multi-purpose vehicles?? I don't miss the 3-wheeler for jumping or big trail rides a bit, but I do miss it for those lazy rides through the woods near my parents house. They turned so much sharper than quads to today that it was easy for woods riding. Of course that short turn is what made them dangerous. My 200X may be gone, but we still have my first 3-wheeler... a 1983 Honda 110. I try to make sure I get is started every couple months and take it for a spin. All good plastic and not a spec of rust in the tank. They just don't build them as tough as they used to.

That is the reason we must sign waivers at the track and gives a whole new meaning to, “Hold my beer and watch this!”

i think the amazing thing is that i was just thinking about this clip yesterday (being monday), but didn't bother looking. sometimes these things just fall in your lap at the most convenient times.
