    Hmm, looks like a Snowmobile tome...with wheels! Nope, not a motorcycle.

    That's a cool looking ride! I've ridden recumbant trikes with the same configuration (pedal powered) - and the thing that took the longest time to get used to was not counter-steering. I assume the can-am is the same way.

      Try to lean on, and you land on your Head. That's why the new quads are all 4 wheel. I met two with plates in their heads from losing it on old 3 wheeled ATC 90 or 110.

    BTW, a 3 wheeler is never a : "motorcycle"", unless it has a detachable side car.

    Beyond that, No. A gal in the ALR , Michele, bought a Slingshot, is it similar?

    The TriGlides and SSs all ride tail on our runs., so cagers can "See" them and not crowd us riders. Good to have some storage space for a first aid kit and a reflective triangle.

      wrong, my state and most others define M/C as having 3 wheels or less
      you need a m/c endorsement to be on the road, and follow helmet laws , if you state has one

    Looks just as easy to kill yourself on as a regular m/c.

    Nope, and never will. It is my personal opinion they're for women, or men afraid to ride a real motorcycle.

      No legs riders? check out VA hospital parking lot sometime, hand controls on trike conversions, some sidecar rigs with wheel chair in side car. BMW/ sidecar rally used to have parking spots reserved for the amputees- trikes and special sidecars rigs mostly, couple 'Training wheel ' rigs also..
