For years I’ve thought that riding a three wheeled motorcycle would be just like riding on two wheels with the exception of being heavier. I never considered that there’s no lean, it’s more like steering a car but with handlebars and that it has reverse. Howie, from Biggs Harley Davidson in San Marcos, Ca. told me that it’s quite different from riding like I’m used to and he was right! It took between 25-50 miles to get the hang of turning without lifting my butt off the seat and leaning outside the turn because I felt like I was going to tip over. Once I got used to that part of the ride it was a lot of fun. It’s a bit bumpier over rough patches in the road because of the two rear wheels but it’s very smooth overall and I can absolutely see why people take these on long road trips with the extra storage. I had two passengers and both said it was very comfortable. One is my 80 year old Stepmother and the other is my 14 year old son, Gavin so this gives you both ends of the spectrum on age and stamina. Thumbs up for sure from both riders. The motor is a 114 and the gearing is the same with the exception of having reverse. You don’t use any clutch, shifter or anything at all except a button on the right side of the handlebar that you press once briefly and then hold it down for as long as you want to move in reverse. I like this motorcycle a lot but would not trade my two wheels for it. If I were unable to lift my bike off of the kickstand or for some reason I couldn’t ride my motorcycle, this is a fantastic alternative and worth it to keep the wind in your face in my opinion.
