OK, we need something new to argue about and besides, I'm missing the 'back and forth' from some of our most recent 'threads' or 'wars' about specific manufacturers and the parental ancesttry of those who ride particular brands. I actually like the arguments, it shows some passion. So here goes (no references to specific manufacturers or models):
Trikes are superior to bikes for a number of reasons.
A) You can carry parts and gear in the trunk. I mean serious parts and tools like belts, hoses, throttle cables, tool sets, fuel pumps, water pumps, oil, tranny fluid, wet riding gear, guns (no carbine fits in a pocket), etc. This will endear you to your riding friends, like having a pickup or in ground pool in the summer.
B) Alternatively you can carry beer of Black Jack and cokes in the trunk for those refreshment breaks.
C) You can fit 2 blondes on the vehicle instead of one, probably 3 or 4 with the Sierra trike model. (the wisdom of this depends on your situation).
D) You can have floorboards so that you can move your feet and the rain does not splash up on you.
E) No 'oops my foot slipped at the light' or on gravel or you take off with the kickstand down and you go down sideways (those of you who say 'never with me' are mostly liars on this one).
F) Park in the dirt or soft ground, it won't fall over from the stand.
G) Your wife or rider won't say '500 miles on that seat today- no way'.
H) For those of us balance impaired (could be medical or alcohol related), a more stable ride.
I) Wider rear wheel contact ares (usually) so faster hookups- if you are smokin' you ain't movin'.
This should be fun, let's roll.
