    I'm 51 (52 in May) and I can still ride 2 wheels but I know I won't be able to forever. I just went ahead and got a Trike and I really enjoy it more and my wife enjoys it more too. I ride for me and her and no one else. I'm perfectly happy on 3 wheels.

    Whenever my buddies want to pick at me, I just ask them "How much do you ride yours?". Many of them have an inch of dust on theirs or just ride on the weekends. I put 4k miles on mine just in the winter. I'm just out here smilin', stylin' and profilin'. LOL

    huh ?????where did u come up with that number???

    granted i am not "most people" 10k is pretty normal... 15 is not unheard of... last year sucked, less than 5 but that was a first[/QUOTE]

    I know many people who own bikes that barely ride them at all. Check the listings for older bikes with low mileage and you'll see where I got my numbers from. It isn't hard to find a 10 or even 15 year old bike with less than 20,000 miles.

    rode 2 wheels from 14 years of age till 45 years of age. turned a valkyrie interstate into a trike at 45 and never looked back. i will not nor do i wish to ride 2 wheels again. i love the freedom that 3 wheels gives me. alot of things i don't have to worry about anymore. like gravel, leaves, wet roads, i just feel more comfortable on 3 wheels.
