I never thought of that and completely get it.

That's what my summary says. " all the disadvantages of a bike and none of the advantages of a car"😁

I always thought the more usual trikes built from converted bikes were for those who want to look 'cool' but don't like the idea of leaning over in bends.  That Scorpion has a certain something about it but I'm not sure that what it has is 'cool' ;D

Quote from: Tabsdad on November 19, 2020, 13:15:09 pmGenuine question:
What's the attraction to trikes?

I was finding my BMW K1600GT a bit heavy when stationary or at low speed so was looking for an alternative. Smaller lighter bikes tend to have a much less comfortable seating position for longer trips and tend to put a lot of weight on your wrists. When  I checked out the  Spyder it was really comfortable and had a lot of storage for trips. Very different in handling but becomes second nature with experience, not such as good acceleration as the BMW but made up for by the comfort on long journeys. (Longest so far  just over 300 miles with just a stop for petrol.)
