Default Trikes... why no separate section on the site for them?

With all the kits now available for Victory and Indian, isn't it time for a separate section dedicated to them? See one in my future and would love to learn from those who have already modified to them.

Funny the animosity sometimes between two wheelers and three. Except 3 wheelers don't give crap to those on two.

Anyway I agree MT. I'm doing a champion right now. For whatever reason, I'm doing it. You'll get better reception over on Trike Talk. They even have a Victory section. Check it out.

Set up a registration there, thanks for the tip. Can't believe we still wouldn't set up a spot here. What's wrong with 3 wheelers? If a disabled vet with zero riding experience shows up on one people would applaud. So 40 years biking on 900 lbs at 5' 2" developing medical issues is frowned on? Tell that to your SO when they want to ride and you say just cant do it any more, it's just not cool unless I drop the bike with you on it. People who can still ride 2 wheels at any age should be thankful for their health and know one day they may still want to ride instead of giving up a life long passion. They day you give up the dream is the day you start dying faster.

I don't know anyone with animosity towards people with trikes. I think a trike section would work well if there were handful of trikes here. But I really haven't seen any on here yet. Maybe in time. Here in Arizona there are a lot of trikes. I bet they have their own exclusive site, but haven't really checked myself.

2012 XCT with a California Side Car kit and read this forum frequently. Rode on two wheels for a lot of years. The wife feels safe and comfortable on three so I would rather have her with me than at home. After almost 49 years of marriage you learn priorities.

Have you tried contacting the Admin to see if they would add a Trike Section? I could try if you like.
