Rokk and Roll 

The Girl and I took our new Trikkes (we got the T78 Air) out for our first time out of the garage. A couple of days ago after we assembled them we just practiced basic techniques and small movements in the garage, but today we ventured out to a parking lot.

We were headed for the parking lot of my old high school, where I learned to drive. It has a nice big, level lot - unfortunately for us, these same qualities made it perfect for the motorcycle class that was being held there. So instead we went to the next lot over, at my old middle school. It had a little bit of a slope, but we worked through it.

If you get one of these, don't get discouraged. All the instruction videos and the user forums say that it takes practice, practice, practice, and then one time you'll just hit the sweet spot and say, "Oh, now I get it!" We both hit that a few times today, and boy did we get a workout in the process. But it was so much fun. We may go out again this evening after The Girl is back from golfing.
