Re: LT Trike
Here's something else to consider - there is a big difference between a trike conversion and installing a trike kit.
The conversions (Hannigan, Champion, Roadmaster, factory built Harley Triglide, California Side Car [CSC] and a couple of others) totally remove the rear end of the factory bike and attach a custom built car-style rear end to the frame and drive shaft. (okay, yes I know some use chain or belt drive also, but far less common).
OTH. the trike kits (Voyager, Tow-Pak, Trigg and others) keep the factory bike rear end and add a custom set of wheels and fenders to give your bike a trike look and feel. Now you have a four wheeler! Three wheels in the rear. The original back tire is the drive wheel and the other two are .... uh, I dunno, maybe like the training wheels on a bicycle?
Apologies to any Voyager owners out there. Just giving my personal observation here on the motor trike issue. Strange as it may seem to some of you, there are a thousand ways to trike a two wheeler. It's a whole different world which I really enjoy in my senior years.
Ride safe and often.
