Picked up my camper/mobile studio this past Friday, 05/18
Cage: Note—The cage will not be connected to the rear axle cage assembly because the suspension effect would be lost. Instead Utah Trikes will incorporate the cargo area into the cage itself and support it by the main frame.
Trailer Hitch: Ashley will make a custom hitch, using a 3/8″x24tpi heim joint to thread on a mount on/in my trailer tongue. The hitch is to be 12″ off the ground. This match up had been one of my concerns [until last night] because, if it does not work, I’ll be forced to resolve before departing. Thanks to Ashley, that concern has been set aside.
Final Fargo Graphic: Early next week, Andie returns to her studio to await a left-side photograph of the Catrike Expedition based quad that will be silhouetted [like the stage coach] to replace the CAD TerraTrike Path you have seen on the artwork. The timing works for Ashley and for me to get to my graphics installer.
Time is extremely critical here. The exact ship date is still uncertain. Ashley hopes to ship NLT 06/01. I’m hoping for early. The estimated cross-country time is 4 days. That means I could receive it 06/07 [a day earlier] and must get graphics install as well as my accessories and components and be ready to travel with Mr. Giraldo on 06/10. My fall back plan is to delay my departure, travel along, hoping to meet Rafael at Bar Harbor on the 11th or 12th, or elsewhere on the route. Needless to say, the next 24 days will be interesting and exciting. My best-case planning did not happen—no test riding; no trip to Florida, etc. Please stay tuned and lets see how this plays out…
