Random Trike Question

Can somebody tell me what this thing is. I have seen 3 different ones in the past week. These guys should have little flags on them....

The one I saw today had a roof over the guys head and he was hauling ass (about 40mph)....

Looks like a recumbent bike: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recumbent_bicycle

Been around for a long time, they just were not very popular but have seen a resurgence in the past 10 years.

Who knows. There was some writing on the side but I couldn't make it out. Looks like a spendy bike though.
