Default New Triker from he south coast

Hi fellow riders, I have been reading these forums for quite a while, and finally took the plunge. Anyway I am a triker and have my honda shadow trike (which I love) to ride around on. Long story short is I use to ride before I got married, and life kinda got in the way. Until I became disabled and couldn't stand looking at four walls any longer. I couldn't hold a big bike, so I got a trike, and I haven't looked back.

I look forward to chatting with you all.

Thanks for the welcome you two. BikerGran I will be down your way next month, as I want to go to the Sammy Miller Museum. I have never been, but they tell me its great for a day out.

Here is a pic of my ride too.

Nice! Good to see it has luggage carrying capacity (though I'm not a fan of chequerplate) - I always think it's daft to have a trike with just a tiny topbox or carrier!

I need a backrest but I had to change my seat back top the old dual seat as it gives me more room for my arthritic knees to stretch!

Give us a shout when you're coming this way in case I'm out and about! Yes Sammy's is always a good visit, no matter how many times you'vbe been. Never know what's being worked on, or what the man himself will be firing up in the courtyard - and there's a cafe with cake!

I can vouch for the cake too, and the museum is rather good too..I'm about 10 mins from there

We could have a trikefest, just the three of us - well, that is to say, Shadow Rider could show us his trike and me and Stinkey could moan about ours being off the road!

You could all join Harry down the end of his field in his tent?

Too late BG, Harry went to a wedding last week, where everyone was meant to turn up with their bikes/trikes and camp, and apparently only Harry and a couple others did, but the rest turned up with caravans or motorhomes! He wrote about it in the main thread.

Oh yeah, saw that, now that you remind me.

I went to a weekend bike/trike club 'do' years ago with same situation - as it was only just down the road from my house I packed up and went home, didn't see the point of staying!
