Dick H's Maiden Voyage on the Trike !!!

So yesterday Was the Maiden Voyage of Dicks Trike project:)

Lots of energy, anxiety and Just plain excitement as Dick and His wife Verda get ready for the well deserved and anticipated Ride.
Dick started this project 6 years ago and between working, riding, being a Husband, Dad, Grandparent  and Great friend it is now Ready to go..

Dick and Verda Headed out, 
We ended up Riding out to Hat Rock State Park where we discovered the Forcast Weather of 63 was NOT CLOSE to acurate.
The reality was Chilly 53 and east wind coming down the Columbia....


The adrenaline Kept them warm, but I wimped out lol....





All loaded up and ready



Great Job Dick H.!!
Very Cool:)

Looking forward to Many Many miles of riding with my good friend:)

Dick's Trike is coming right along:)

My Buddy Dick has made very good progress, one of the additions he has decided on is floor board extensions.
The extensions will make it much safer and certainly more comfortable:)

The templates for the floor boards
He has them cut an fitted, will be welding them very soon:)
