I will be building a warrior for a 600 mile solo charity ride. I have ridden bikes since i was 3 and due to some recent medical issues i am forced to ride something with 3 wheels. I found this and was imediatly hooked. I will be using alluminum for the frame and a friend will be machineing alot of parts. I am shooting to ride in october of 2012 as i will be turning 40 on the 8th of that year. I am sure i will have lots of questions. So i look forward to talking to everyone. Now on with gathering all the parts.

Thanks

Do you have your route planed yet?
600 miles will probably take you near some of us, we can come out to cheer you on.

I have not decided on a route yet. I have made the drive using many different routes. I need to go and study some topo maps to find one that contains the least amount of drastic elevation changes and has accomidations somewhat close to what I think I can do in a day. My wife will be driving the support van so she will need a bed every night. I will keep you posted as things come together.

I have a welder that will be helping me since I cant see good enough to weld any more. I am in the process of slowly gathering parts so I can start building.

Thanks
