    Default Trike Owners

    I want to purchase a Boss Hoss Trike toward the end of the year. I would like to purchase a new one so I can get the color, accessories, and things I would like to have. I have been looking at the Boss Hoss trikes on the internet and I see alot of used trikes and also bikes out there with very low mileage, but they could have many years on them. I really like the Boss Hoss Trikes and want one, but my question is why are there so many Boss Hoss bikes and trikes out there with so many miles on them and lot of years. I have had bikes, trikes all my life and I when I purchase a bike I ride it and put miles on it. I know a Boss Hoss product is very expensive, but are they reliable to have. There is the saying, if you can afford to buy it, you should be able to by the gas for it. If you guys and gals riding the Boss Hosses out there could tell me how many miles / kilometers you put on your ride and also what kind of mileage do you get.

    Mine is an '01 ZZ4.
    About 86,000 miles on it.
    Had it since new.
    Best fuel mileage was 27.1 MPG.
    Usually around 22 to 24 with a Stage II Carb Mike upgrade.

    I have a 2010 32 coupe small block, bought used, had it for 4 years now. Gave up a 2001 Boss bike to get the trike because of knee replacements. The trike has been good to me but has only been ridden about a 3,000 miles since i owned it. MY trike has factory air ride which helped the stiff ride problems, but I made some changes with help from members on this forum by changing shock mount positions , and shock manufacture type to get an acceptable ride. I think the Boss bike was more fun to ride, but age takes a toll on the body, and the trike has filled its place for me.
    Good luck when the time comes for you to start looking

    I own a 2001 '57 Chevy ZZ4.
    I am the 8th owner. It was put through the wringer somewhere along the line, but after 3 years of constant break-downs and repairs (I put only 10K miles on it) she is breathing new life again.
    Just shy of 33,000 original miles.
    A Carburetor Mike Stage II upgrade gives me about 17 MPG on the high-spinning TH350 transmission and 3:23's out back. A TH700R4 is in my long-term plans.
    I'm made a lot of minor modifications to make her more daily-driver friendly.
    The sheer POWER (385 HP/400 TQ) makes it all worth it!
