I never saw one in person before it showed up on my doorstep. I saw the infomercial and was fascinated with the physics and engineering behind it. I'm an engineer. I researched it and got the T-8 because it fits in the trunk of my Honda Civic. I plan on using at work on my lunch hour. I'd like to eventually get a T-12 Roadster, but I'll learn on the T-8 for now. The T-8 is supposed to be zippier than the T-12 and can go as fast, but the T-12 is better suited for long road travels (like 30 miles or so).
There is an odd unstable feeling to TRIKKE when you first get on it. Sorta like learning to ride a bike at first. It takes a little getting used to it, but not too long. I'm taking it slow and trying to acclimate myself to the carving process.
Good luck with which ever model you choose.
