This is Davburr's motorcycle for when he becomes a senior citizen:

"OK, biker dudes, if you want to be called a wuss and get laughed out of the bike rally, install a Retractable Wheel System from Safety Features Incorporated. Flip a switch on the handlebars, and these wheels hydraulically lower to keep that bike upright at low speeds or when itís stopped.
Yeah, we laugh at training wheels for a motorcycle, but this device is great for people with bad knees, senior citizens, and even paraplegics. Just not for biker dudes."
Dave, you had better get your order in now, I hear they have a large back order.

There's something better then those training wheels - the way to go for that would be to get a trike - its a bike that has 2 wheels on the back. I've got a friend with MS that is selling his bike and he's going to buy a trike to ride now - I think its cool that folks who can't ride on two wheels still have biking options - when I hit about 80 or 90 years old I'll consider getting a trike too....

Sorry dave, I know you are 40 so you have approx. 15 yrs. before senior citizen status creeps in. laugh.gif

naw, retirement age for me won't be 55 (thanks to the way the economy currently is going, thanks GW)
I probably won't be able to retire til I'm in my 70's - if I can retire at all...

Those trikes are cool. I definitely prefer those that are based on real motorcycles to those crazy home-built lookin' ones, but I'm sure they're all fun to ride. I think it's great that these are becoming more prolific and are giving people an opportunity to be out in the wind who might otherwise not have the physical capability.

Davburr, I recently saw a V-Rod trike. THAT looked like fun! Talk about a hot rod, eh?

So GW is at fault because you feel you can't retire at 55? Did he get you your first job too? Is it his fault that you can't retire now or just can't retire at 55?

This sounds like a good topic to jump in on.

MSgt, there's only two choices, a sidecar or a trike, anything else won't do. There's a trike manufacturer that builds their trikes with a flexible rear axle with independent piston-shock suspension. And for the over-the-road distance riders, you can purchase a matching trailer for carrying all your essentials to tow behind the trike. ADA and Equal Opportunity for bikers!
