Motorcycle Trike Safety Tips

There are not many things which can attract attention and turn heads like a motorcycle trike, often driven by leather clad ”easy riders”, arms up like a praying mantis (shows off the sleeve fringes), shades, (to protect their eyes from the glare of the chrome), and a real life biker chick poised on the rear seat like a sofa. The comfort and safety of a car, the thrill of a motorcycle, the roar of the crowd.  There are even plenty of hiding places to carry a few necessities (chrome polish for one thing).

Motorcycle Trikes are becoming more popular, with more and more people looking to stand out from the crowd and stamp out their individuality. They’re big business these days, with people often spending more on their motorcycle trike than they would on their family saloon, which is quite remarkable when you think that many of them are securely locked away except for the occasional sunny Sunday morning or enthusiasts rally.

Riding a motorcycle trike is very similar to riding a regular, two wheeled motorcycle, well, a lot of the controls are standardized, but there are one or two differences – you can’t lean around corners for one thing. If you’re used to riding a motorcycle, then a motorcycle trike won’t make such a difference to you, but if you’re starting off with a three wheeler and don’t have experience of riding a motorcycle, then there are a few things which you need to take into account. It’s a much different kettle of fish to driving a car, that’s for sure . . .
