AndyB Posted July 3, 2017 Share Posted July 3, 2017 Has anyone really looked at the total weights claimed for machines and checked them? I was chatting with our Air Conception man at Parafest and picked up his machine with a 200cc engine - with both reserve and prop fitted. I picked it up easily with one hand - no fuel. Most of the other machines on display had no reserve and in some cases no prop. They were all heavier. Meanwhile, I struggle to move my own Parajet V3 machine with both hands and I never put over 7 litres fuel in (too heavy then). When learning I was advised to go for the strong frame initially as it would take the knocks, but as it has turned out, it has no knocks (I usually bash some part of me instead ). So I went to Parafest with an aim to look at trikes as I struggle with weight on my knackered back (due 3 more disc replacements this summer). I ended up realising that some machines are now so light that they are a much better solution than the trike. Has anyone else tried these 20 kg machines? What are your thoughts?
