Yamaha Stratoliner Motor Trike ConversionMotor Trike, Inc. has added an all-new trike to its continually expanding line of Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) conversions.
The Motor Trike Galaxy was designed to fit the Yamaha Stratoliner family of motorcycles including the Roadliner, Stratoliner, and Stratoliner Deluxe.Motor Trike took great care to stylistically match this new conversion to the original motorcycle itself. The all-new rear custom body effortlessly becomes one with the Stratoliner.It begins with the rear fenders flawlessly mimicking the front fender, and ending with the smooth body lines from the front fairing as they are carried through to the rear of the trike creating one seamless machine.This conversion retains the factory pulley and belt with no specialty or proprietary additions making it easier to install and maintain. The 4 cubic-foot trunk sits on Motor Trike’s outstanding Independent Rear Suspension that is simply unparalleled when ridden side by side with any other trike on the market.The Company is currently taking orders for the Galaxy at a price of $8,995 per kit and setting delivery dates for next month.Headquartered in Troup, Texas, Motor Trike, Inc. is one of the nation’s leading trike conversion manufacturers.Motor Trike Galaxy Standard Features:

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
