    My buddy is showing up in a bit and I will ask him what his is, I believe it is that one.
    It's a 2 stroke and is pretty freakin fast, it has dumped me on my back more than once.

    I wouldn't spend $425 on a 185. I only paid $175 for mine and it came with an extra motor, it ran like crap, but I kinda expected that so I'm parting it out now. They're not all that fast either. If I were you I'd try to get a 200x, got mine for $500 in ok condition, but I will have spent about $400 more on it by the end of next week (new (used) brakes and cylinder bore/new piston). I'm about to sell my Arctic Cat to buy another toy, gonna be a dirt bike and another trike or just a TRX 250r or 400ex.
    Check out www.3wheelerworld.com and www.3wheeler.org , I'm a regular poster on both.

    wow...how often do you come by a deal like that though!! i see those 200x's gor for like 800 and up mostly!! i cant find good deals on any thing..this is the best deal ive seen yet! i want something pretty fast that i wont get bored with..and something that i can fling some mud and snow with to..(besides the truck)..i can do some work on it if it needed it but i would want something that at least ran and moved..

    Four stroke with no suspension. They're fun as hell tho. Put some haulers on the back and have a blast! Wheely all day long.

    does the 185 you are looking at have just a crappy suspension fork (3-4'' travel) and no suspension in the rear, or is it one of the few 185's that actually came with rear suspension? If it does have rear suspension, buy it, if not I would hold off for something that does. I have a 110 and 125m, and having no suspension sucks donkey balls at any speed over 10mph /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gifthey are by no means fast but they always get me home /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. If you are looking for fast AND reliable, look for a 200x or a 350x. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
