    Hello and welcome to the forum. You might be better off posting this in the Recumbent & Trike section. You can ask the mods to move it for you using the ‘report’ button.

    I go mobile in the car on 2, 10, 12 and occasionally CB. I go portable on foot on 2, 70 and PMR while hiking and do a bit of informal hilltoping, but never on the bike yet.

    We have a Cyclechat Ham thread, which waxes and wanes...

    PS, forgive me going off topic, but it is at least sensible (for once!).

    Hi Mal
    Welcome to the forum, i have a KMX Koyote which i,m about to put up for sale. I,ve only had the trike around 2 months and it has done less than 200 miles so its in perfect condition. I,m selling it because i,ve manage to get a second hand trike which i originally wanted to buy but could,nt afford from new
