Re: driving tips

The Triking feels lighter, nimbler and more willing than either old or new (Fivespeed) Morgans. The front suspension is considerably more compliant and much more responsive. My Type 1 has a lot more roll than a Morgan, don’t know about others. The Fivespeed Morgan is relatively comfortable inside an...
