Re: Trike Question
I ride a K1200LT trike by Hannigan for long rides w/ Karen
and a R1150RTP for solo riding....
On the trike, G-forces push sideways on you so leaning into the turn feels better and puts weight over the wheel that use to lift on the Servicar and hacks.
We rode our trike from Oregon to Maine and back for a lobster dinner, and this summer 11,000 miles in the Iron Butt National Parks Tour.
It's a great thing for old guys w/ blown knees..
Although I have no problem riding the R1150RTP, on the K bike, loaded and with Karen up, every stop was a contest between weight and my joints.
Is it a motorcycle ?.....Well, is a sidecar rig a motorcycle ? Is a Canam ? ...a rice burner ?
Inatead of joining someones "club", ride what you do and even wave at cousin Harley if you want.
Matter of opinion and perspective.....so who cares? When I hit 90 I'll probably ride a scooter and still smile down the road. If you're ever in Oregon, stop by and I'll let you ride the trike.
