As pretty as that is, I think I would switch to a covertible if I couldn't ride two wheels anymore. A convertible would be so much more fun in the curves than a trike would be.

Yeah I would never say never but I really do not like the looks of trikes.

I don't believe I would ever go with traditional trike. I might try one of those can am spiders but like twowheel I think a convertible would be better. Anything with more than two wheels is not really a motorcycle And provides a different experience.

I'm not one for a trike either but I seeing that I have the green and black Vaquero I thought it was pretty cool.

Not a fan of trikes as well. I would get a little hodrod convert, if that day ever came that I couldn't hold up a two-wheeler. I did test ride a Can-Am Spyder it freaked me out so bad I turned around the first five blocks of the ride. It Just felt unsafe to me.

I love to lay into the curves, I've never rode a Can-Am Spyder or a trike but with my type of riding I feel the same way. To unsafe for me too!

Well I for one am a fan of trikes, I have had one in the past. I could ride it but not my two wheeled scoots for about 6 months after leg surgery. Glad I had it.

As far as twisties.... maybe, but I had fun in those too, but if you cant ride a two wheeled, your "twisty" days are over, even in a convertible. After all, a convertible by any other name is just a......... car....

Strangely enough, when I am in a car I never have any windows down. Don't like the wind noise.... plus A/C is always on....
