    You left out possibly the best conversion on the market. DFT. I love it.

      My wife and I own a 2012 Goldwing CSC Viper. We really love it. Rides good has a big trunk and seems to be really well designed.
      I looked at several trikes before deciding on the one I bought. In my opinion I think all the new trike kits are fantastic.
      I bought mine new online from a dealer and rode it almost 500 miles home in one day. Really learned a lot about trike driving that day!
      At first I thought I had maybe made a mistake but by the time I got home I was loving the dang thing.
      This will probably be my last motorcycle purchase and I plan to keep it until I can't get on it anymore!

        We had a Roadsmith installed last year, best move I ever made. The ride is great, I re-built my front forks with Race Tech springs and a Gold Valve kit. Life on a trike is the bomb

              Have over 86000 miles on my 06 CSC. Loved it the first time I rode it and still do. But I still remember my first solo ride on my 94 CSC. Thought I had made the most expensive mistake ever.But after 500 plus miles I changed my mind.

                Currently, a '12 with a 14.5 Lehman Monarch II IRS, LLS w/ 27 K miles. Ours was the first trike built after CHampion took over Lehman...love the LLS since we ride the super slab and mountain twisties. All minor issues have been corrected thanks to entire staff at Lehman in Spearfish.

                  I currently have an 06 Wing with an 08 Hannigan Kit and have loved every minute with her but earlier this month I traded the "old girl" for a 2014 wing with a Gen II Hannigan including a few trinkets. I'm scheduled to pick the "new gal" up near the end of the month. I'm figity waiting. Ride Safe. Doc

                  Doc, that sounds fantastic. Good for you on getting that new Gen II. Now I can't wait to see it. Yep, you're gonna need to post up some pictures for sure.

                    I put a Champion trike kit on my Wing in Aug. of 2012. One reason I went with a Champion is that they would sell the kit to me so I could build it with out paying any labor. I'm really pleased with the trike. I have over 30,000 miles on it without a problem It worked for me. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

                      I must admit that I am really enjoying my Hannigan.

                            I triked my 2008/1800 in 2010. It was the best move I ever made. I never looked back.
                            Enjoy your machine and ride safe. All the best to one and all.

                              We have 2008 bought in 2013 triked in 2014 with a motortrike razor. Great ride, haven't regretted at all.

                                We have a 2006 GL1800 with a 2012 Roadsmith. We have ridden it coast to coast a couple of times and love the ride. I am going seat shopping though.

                                  I have ridden nothing but sidecars {6 years} and trikes {35 years} since 1973. I owned 1 1500 trike with a solid axle CSC. Also 4 1800 trikes. 1 CSC, 2 Hannigans and now my first Champion.

                                    In 2006 when we purchased our trike the dealership I chose only offered 2 choices and Lehman was one of them. I had gone there with my mind made up that I would purchase the "other" brand. After riding both conversions there was no choice for me but color. I should say we had been riding a '98 GL 1500 with a Lehman conversion and a log wagon would have been smoother. The Monarch 2 , for us, rides as well as the "other" brand and we are very happy with our choice. I also appreciate how simply the conversion is built. Hey, if a live axle setup is good enough for NASCAR Sprint Cup cars, that run in excess of 200mph, it is good enough for me !!! The quality of the Lehman fiberglass work was also top notch. Ride aware, Dave

                                      I love our CSC Cobra XL but could also love the Roadsmith HTS if it were mounted to a 2015 black/red. Don't tell the wife....
