Trike Help! For a friend.

[]You have helped with all other questions, this one may be out there!
An old friend has shown interest in a trike. He grows grapes in New Zealand and will be here this week. He has ridden bikes/scooters, and feels two wheels is not in his best interest.
So, any thoughts regarding trikes? He has shown interest in my BMW but probably could get by with a Honda, or whatever.

I realize this is a wierd request but I will be seeing him next week in the Reno area and would like to steer him to a site/source for info. For all I know New Zealand has a trike source.

Thanks for any input you may have,

Re: Trike Help! For a friend.

I rode an RT untill my knees gave up and got an LT trike.
Very nice ride. Takes a little more upper body muscle. ...and you have to get use to g-forces pushing sideways on you...usually means leaning into the corner even if the bike doesn't.
