Legendary Service... Ask Your Friends - Since 1969
On a recent trip to Gooseberry Falls, Minnesota I came across an unusual looking bike. In fact, I wasn’t sure it was classed as a motorcycle or a car. The rear looked like that of a car, featuring two wheels, a trunk and a car lighting configuration. As I looked at the interior, while it was open like a trike, it featured a car steering wheel. The front was neither a car or a motorcycle style, it looked more like a futurist kind of spacecraft.
After chatting with the owner for a short while it became clear as to what I was feasting my eyes on. It was a “Stallion”, manufactured by Thoroughbred Motorsports. The vehicle is classed as a trike and is about as comfortable as you can get for a motorcycle, complete with 5 speed auto transmission, pedal controls, air conditioning in front and rear, a Ford 2.3 litre engine giving 143 horsepower, this might be just the machine for those looking to stay comfortable on longer rides.
