Tule Trooper Big Boy verse the Tote Gote Model 600
By Mitch Hemphill
Just uncrated put together and ready to start for the first time
The Tule and I Testing well on a really steep one
Mitch's Tote Gote Model's 665 and 600
First impression of Tule Trooper before the restoration
My first ride
It has a 2 speed gear box (low and high)
In low gear It Climbs as good as my Tote Gote
And tops out at a blistering 15 miles per hour
In low full gas from a dead stop sends the front wheel right up into
the air In High gear it tops out at a blistering 45 miles per
hour. In high it starts off pulling well right from
the start but as Rpm's build it pulls much better.
I AM COMPARING THIS WITH MY BLUE MODEL 600 Tote Gote
not my wife Suzanne's model 665 with the back shocks
Now to compare with the tote gote model 600
The Tule Trooper Vibrates much more than the tote
gote As you are essentially riding a big spring
One must stop and change gears a lot
And this slows you down
But if you are traveling a long ways you can
definitely cover more ground on the Tule Trooper.
Suzanne and I went for a ride today her on her model
665 Me on the tule.
She had to wait all the time for me to switch gears
But on the gravel road I was waiting on her
So there is definitely a trade off.
All in All the Tule Trooper did well
And I expect it to do even better after restoring it.
Mitch And Suzanne
Many Thanks to my Wonderful Wife Suzanne for taking Time out of her Busy Day (we have 4 kids) to go riding with me and taking such awesome pictures
