What are your thoughts abt an 03 Venture with a motor trike kit?

I heard they had some quality control problems back then. This has no reverse. Should I get it or keep looking for a CSC Hannigan champion or lehman? It's reasonable (10K) but is this something I want? 1st time trike rider, thanks, Tom

Tom, here's my opinion of the trike you're asking about. In general the 03 Yamaha Venture was a good bike but it suffered from 1 major drawback....LACK OF POWER. And it did so without the huge weight difference that the trike conversion adds. So although I love the Venture, I DON'T LIKE IT AS A TRIKE. And my opinion would be to look for a Goldwing or Valkyrie trike...something with more power to move the extra weight adequately.There are other more powerful bikes to consider as well.Thanks for your sharing.
