    Fantastic for your Mom. I know if the day comes ( hopefully a long time away ) that I can not handle 2 wheels, I will be on three. And for me the Can Am is the best bet. Heck I would not mind having one now as a 3rd bike, the F3 limited. Definitely much better cornering than normal trike. I see lots of them around here is SW, Ohio and often driven by women.

    I would ride a spider before a slingshot or a goldwing trike. Can they be made to be fast? And loud? (loud in a good way not honda civic fart can loud)

    The 3 wheelers are going to be the next big ticket as we old timer bikers start to wear out. I’ve had my thoughts on a V8 chopper. Just waiting for someone to sell a garage queen for 1/2 the original sticker ……ouch. Anyway they are pure bad ass and on that ride I don’t really need handling for the twisties in Florida. I need flat out straight line performance to fuk back with those pesky Hell Cats. Lol

    I love the V8 choppers way better looking than those Boss Hogs. If I ever become rich or win the lotto I'll be getting a V8 chopper.

    They have a better transmission too with a cool shifter in between the tank halves. Give me a simple V8 small block chevy with 400 hp and I’ll be just fine. Don’t need no 600 hp big block in that ride.

    I had two of the AMF bikes an 73 Superglide and a 79 Sportster and both were good bikes Although the Superglide was my Fav... Was trying to save up for a Wide-Glide and got a naked Goldwing instead to hold me over. That proved an awesome and I rode it for twenty years...

    I was well, after the Test drive. Being it had only one mile on it when I tested it, I returned from the ride, bought it and had it shipped Home... Damn Salesman knew it, even after being warned I hadn't ridden in a decade. It was just the best handling Cruiser I had ever ridden to that date. Plus I was tired of all the Harley hype on a Bike that at the time looked to me, the same as the ones I rode in the 70's -80's...

    Victory got HD to step up their game and they look much better now, But...

    Test drove one of those with a madman as the escort as it was my first time on one and after 100+ blast down the Interstate into some twisties on back-roads, I thought I was going to kill myself trying to keep up. The first deep curve was an eye-opener and all my instincts were screaming counter, counter, but the stability control kept her level and what a work-out...

    I will stick with the Bike, even if I have to my legs down...

    What now you bashing my Whale Tail 964? Yeah, but it ain't a twin turbo and those things are called Widow Makers for a reason. "Never Lift" or the Whale Tail will find the tree first...

    No sir I would never bash your wife’s 964. It was a 911 Turbo and I’m thinking a TwinTurbo. Back when the speed limit was 55 mph I was locked in at 55 mph as I was passing an on-ramp with a black 911/whale tail Porsche entering I-95 He saw me coming or maybe he didn’t I don’t know but you could see him clearly downshift from the action of the car. I just so happened to have my bottle on and full of nitrous oxide. That little mustang had 308 gears and a K & N filter with a set of Dynomax mufflers only. With the rear end differential I was able to downshift to third gear and it was on. We were both side-by-side as his turbos were spooling up my nitrous was spot on and I started to pull him. Into fourth gear I went approaching 120 on the clock and that was all she wrote. Going into fifth gear would have done nothing but slow me down LOL. That’s when the Porsche ran by me at that speed like I was sitting still! That Pull I made never would’ve happened later when I put 373 gears into that car. Sure they were great from a standing launch through the quarter-mile
    But on the highway it left me with nothing to play with. Those were fun times and incidentally that was the second Porsche I beat in that manner in that year. The other was a more luxurious type and did not have dark tinted windows to see the expression on the driveers face Like the black 911 had.

    @Flyboy i saw that on a indian about 2 yrs back. And I liked it I’d go that route myself before a trike. Don’t know how many years I have left on 2. But ! I try to stay in good shape for that reason. I’m gonna stay on 2 as long as I can and hopefully knowing when it’s time to say I give.
