I've nothing against trikes per se. If that's what makes you happy and comfortable, or its what you need because of physical limitations, have at it.
I just don't get them.
On a MC you have certain positives... cut through traffic, fun of riding the bike, great power to weight ratios, etc. And you have certain negatives... Exposure to elements, dangers of crashing, etc. Cars have certain positives and negatives opposite to those a bike... Safety, comfort on the good, traffic, unfun, power to weight on the bad, etc.
With a trike you get all of the negatives of a bike, all the negatives of a car AND none of the positives of either. So I don't get them.
Like I said, I'm not a trike hater. If its what you want or need to experience, somewhat, the trill of riding, more power to you. It's just not for me. Yet... (Who knows what I'll think when the Burgmans get too big for me to handle).
