    A couple of things put Dad off buying a Can Am trike.

    Too wide to get between the house and side of the shed to park under the lean to. Turning circle not that great either..
    Maintenance intervals/cost of servicing. He likes to tinker even though he is 79.
    The fact that it was belt driven. Stones ripping it on back country gravel roads which he liked to frequent with his riding buddies.

    Add yes he has test ridden one.

    Never owned one, never ridden one, and have absolutely no desire to.

    Actually, not so much. I first long-rode a Hannigan trike conversion at Sturgis couple of years ago, rented it for a half day. As long as you anticipate the corners and do not try to wrestle it around, it's not tiring. But with my first trike trial rides a few years earlier, when I tried (briefly) to corner a trike like a 2-wheeler, that did not work so well.

    At your age ... you might need one (or both) yourself.


    Sooner than you might think.


    Just one fuck up away ...


    Enjoy your rides ...





    Just saying ...
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.
