Being that this week is 'Spring Break' at the school where I work and the weather being so nice (finally), I though this would be a perfect time to take my trike to work. (no kids around to mess with it)


Now in this part of VA, the cops really enforce the local speed limits so I'm always very attentive as to what speed I'm traveling at. So here I was, cruising along Route 15 at 55 mph. (Checking the speedo often). The next thing I know, I look down at the speedometer and I'm just past 65 mph and slowly increasing!! I swear that I didn't feel the increase nor was aware of twisting the throttle (at least not consciously, lol)
So of course, I let off the throttle and settled back down to 55 (yeah,,, I know,, boring)


It's as if the Wing just wanted to stretch her legs a bit more or finally got tired of my "Old Man" driving.


Any of you Wing owners experience the "Ghost-In-The-Machine" that just likes to make the Wing fly? Seems like these machines really do effortlessly take off.


Just my story for today, lol

Every time I ride! That stinking ghost is always twisting the throttle a little more.

Yep, that same ghost seems to take control of that wrist throttle. Came up a long ramp to enter I 75 and when I reach the open road, thought it felt a little fast for 70 MPH. Looked at the speedo and was approching 85MPH.:shrug::shrug::shrug::shrug:
