    Looking good buddy and I see you found the fasteners to install your windshield. After you put some miles on it (on your return home from DV) we need a ride report.

                        Here's my update on the Endeavor reverse kit I had done my 2010 Goldwing. I reverse triked it with 92,600 miles on it, I now have 103,700 on it now.The steering did take some getting used to, a little more than when I went darkside but all is well. IMO, it handles very well including 15-30+ crosswinds and freeway+ speeds. The mileage did go down, but if I keep it under 27-2900 RPM, I can still get 180-190 miles out of a tank, using the lowest grade possible. Above 3000 rpm, you can almost watch the gauge go down, LOL. It handles well in the corners for me, most of you know I'm not a twisty rider. Riding in the rain is not a problem, but as with any bike you do need to pay attention to hydroplaning. Overall comfort is very good, I can still do 1000 mile + days on stock seat and beads is no problem. Temp guage has never moved from where it's always been, even in heavy traffic. The customer service after the sale has been outstanding IMO, questions answered quickly. I did happen to stop by the shop and have Norm give it a 10,000 mile checkup and all was good, got me right in and out. Disclaimer: I did not ride any other trikes before this, couple of friends have other brands but they were in the shop. I will ride others to compare it to mine. Would I recommend it, yes.

                            Hi Jim. How are the front tires holding up?
                            I know they looked half gone in DV.
                            Did Storm/norman do anything for the front end alignment while it was at his place to correct that issue?

                              The alignment was off and Norm told me how to fix it and even shipped me a new set of tires at his cost. When I stopped by his shop my Driveguard was almost gone(29,876 miles) and he put a Michelin X-Ice on the rear for me. He also checked the alignment and it was right on.
