Admin,
Trikes are not motorcycles.
In Ohio, you don't need a motorcycle license to drive a trike.
Right, you don't ride a trike, you drive it.
Why don't they leave the two wheel world alone and go start there own world.
I feel the trike world is impinging into my life and I don't like it.
They are no fun to ride with, the way they slow down on the curves

I'm no fun to ride with either, if slowing down in the curves is a criterion. Of course, I live in Florida where we have 11 curves in 318 miles, so I don't get much practice.

Trikes may not be your thing, or my thing for that matter, but there are plenty out there for whom they are perfect. Besides, Yelvington makes a quality product.

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).

As you climb in age you take what you can get. I don't go though curves fast but I do enjoy the day spent on my Bergman trike. You may not like me here but since I do own a Bergman I'm here to stay. A lot of good info is here. Sorry if I'm impinging on your world but none of us get everything we want

Trike kits serve a purpose.
Some people, for whatever reason, can't ride 2-wheeled bikes but still want a close approximation of the experience.

It's not a choice that I think I'd make; then again, it's easy for me to say that because for now, it's a moot point.

I wish them success, and appreciate their sponsorship.

Not all who wander lack GPS.

I personally think that people in general get too uptight about trying to fit something such as our scoots into a pigeonhole classification system in their minds. I don't seem to have this built into my brain. In my world view, all motorcycles are just that, motorcycles. A trike is just a modified motorcycle, no big deal. Yelvington Trikes is welcome here as a sponsor too. If I was running this forum I wouldn't care if Chevrolet (or Tide) was a sponsor as long as it would facilitate being able to offer the forum to the public at no charge. These forums are not cheap to run, sponsors are good. Remember that people, sponsors are good.

Namaste'

Most people I know will ride most anything with a engine. That is if they can still get on it. I saw a guy that had an ice chest with engine on it and most everyone that seen it wanted to ride it.
