  • 2015 Trikefest Fundraiser machine - Big Red 250ES! Details inside




    This is a little bit of a throw back to our original fundraiser machine back in - 2005 I believe it was? It was a super nice condition Big Red 250 back then. Last years custom built ATC70 and the prior year to that Yamaha Tri-Z are hard machines to top! We've all watched the value and desirability of these nice condition 2nd generation Big Reds continue to rise over the past few years. We thought for a change up just a super nice no frills but ready to rock and roll cruiser bike would be something welcomed. And yes, this is the very same bike that graced the banner and top of 3WW for many months after 2014's Trikefest!

    If you've never really put some seat time in on one of these beauties, allow me to try and describe with written words what the experience is like.


    Firstly, they have what seem to be a nearly unlimited amount of low rpm grunt and torque. You put one of these babies in 1st gear, and it will literally tractor right up hills, over obstacles, and probably pull more than a little effin' tractor really ought to!

    You can put a tank of gas in it and ride for what seems like an eternity. I'm pretty sure God rides a Big Red 250ES, because they both never seem to run out of gas.

    They are SMOOTH trail goers! You aren't taking it off of any sweet jumps, but small logs, rocks, ruts, and washboard make you feel like your gliding across the trail on a carefully woven stack of fine women's lingerie moreso than a 410lb iron rubber and plastic composed beast that it is.

    They look awesome. They have this sort of timeless look, the Honda guys knew what they were doing. Its hard to find anything on a Big Red you could call ugly or unattractive!

    And finally, it actually IS a Big Red! How many times do you encounter someone asking about your US90, Tecate, 250R, or Tri-Z and hear the words "Hey man, aint them one of them Big Red 3wheelers? Buddy of mine in high school had a Big Red 3wheeler!". Everything is ALWAYS a Big Red, if its a 3wheeler. Now you can answer them matter of factly that it infact IS a Big Red.

      Do you have to be present to win? I mean I plan on going but if something comes up and your friends that went calls you up and says man! You missed it, you actually won! Now that's a kick in the butt.

      Either way it's supporting the forum I suppose.

      No need to be present to win Ghost. Last years got shipped to Cali. Besides if ya win and aren't present I think I know someone who 's not too far away from you that could get it really close to home for you

      I`m still wanting a last year`s tshirt.

      So after I win this, what will Rich ride around on barking out TF daily announcements?

      and 2nd, Is the Mr. microphone PA setup included in this wonderful prize package? I would love to use it to bark out announcements here at home as currently it seems as if I`m not being loud enough to be heard.

      Some people were talking about going riding last weekend. My Big Red currently has the snowplow on the front, and I said to my girlfriend, "ya know, I could really use another Big Red." Exceptional timing, 3WW!

      I have zero use here in AZ for a Big Red, except maybe I can talk one of the MX tracks into letting me groom the track mid race with the big red.

      But you can bet your AZZ I am buying some COA's.

      Is this correct ???
      If you purchase 20 bucks worth of C.O.A.'s and get 5 of them for that money your odds are 35.4 to 1. Really , is that correct ???
