I have a Type 1 and despite a regular checking and retightening, when I push the Triking back into the garage after even a gentle trip, there's the 'orrible crinkling noise from the front wheels. Even on the rear wheels of sidecar combinations I've ...

Re: Hopefully others (and myself) can learn (again) from my Stupidity

Coming from an aircraft operations background, this is something about which I'm very careful!

Re: Electronic timing.

Despite being aware of the backfire issue, I chose Silent Hektik to run on my Guzzi (Triking still has points but I have plans...).
