    No such thing as “First Annual”

    Rodent. It is said that people can’t tickle themselves. How do you do it

    In this case “First Annual” is a statement of intent .
    “Inaugural” doesn’t carry that connotation.

    does this ” bug you?

    Fuji,Inaugural does have intent as a start of a series.Inaugural does not just mean the first.It means to invest in omens with faith in the start of a regular cycle of events.Or a regular tricycle of events,as the case may be.

    ” My point to begin with is what the hell does it have to do with three wheelers ”

    Its an [ FIRST ANNUAL ] oxymoron probably used more than Inaugural.

    What is the point here improper grammar or three wheelers

    Should it read ” Inaugural Tricycle ride ”

    . Assembly for the Teaching of English Grammar started having conferences in 1990, they called the inaugural edition “The First Annual ATEG Conference.”

    Whatever they call it, it will be a great event for trike owners.
    Wish I could participate but I have to work.
    I build trikes and repair bikes for a living.

    The only thing that trikes have with motorcycles is the operating controls. I’ve had a couple, a servi-car and a R69s with Steib that I drove, you ride 2wheelers and drive 3wheelers.

    Didn’t Sturgis start out as a racing event? Now it has come to trikes.
    What do they say about HDs customer base?

    “… you ride 2wheelers and drive 3wheelers…”

    Spot on.
    And, most brake-in bikers also “drive” 2wheelers.
    (if ya doubt that, just ask-em how to steer a2wheeler)

    We are ALL getting to the point where 3-wheelers are going to be looked at very hard
    either as an option or a nesscesity ……
    Me. I’d rather look at a Can-Am Spyder
    (easier to handle, not prone to tip-overs, more hp)
    than a trike but to each their own. Good Luck with it and enjoy the ride!
