Re: K1600Gtl Trike
Just a quick couple of thoughts. Sidecars are fun and having previously owned two sidecar rigs when I'm ready to graduate to 3 wheels that's probably the way I'll go. However, driving a sidehack requires a totally different set of skills than a standard trike and, like Dan said, if you consider taking that route please go take a class. As far as a standard trike vs a CanAm, the CanAm will require much less effort to control than a trike. Modifying the front end steering geometry on a trike will reduce steering effort but not to the level of the power assisted steering on the CanAm. Also, for what it's worth, the CanAm also offers electronic skid control. Test ride both machines before making a decision.
