So now they make training wheels for lazy nerds and equilibrium challenged tards that are too dumb to realize you need to put your foot down when you stop?

Wow.......That's about as cool as Elton John's fanny pack...

No way! They actually call them training wheels!?!?! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Sometimes a plain ole Scooter just doesn't make a strong enough statement. When that's the case, you slap some training wheels on there.


In seriousness, I have seen the "removable" trike kits before. I guess that they have to be somewhat safe or they'd get sued for selling them, but the idea scares the h3ll out of me. Of course, I have only ridden a "regular" street trike twice, and both times I was convinced I was going to get a utility pole in the teeth before it was over.

Yeah, my great uncle has a Goldwing trike. He's had them for years. No way would I ride one. I've ridden 3-wheelers enough in my life that there's no way I would ever get on a trike on the street. They tend to be a little top-heavy when they lean, and you end up on2 wheels... I understand the concept for stability and in a straight line or interstate cruising, or if someone is handicapped or unable to hold up a bike. But I still think it was never a good idea from the beginning. Just my thoughts.

Hey now. Dont be making fun of the training wheels. They actually work very well. Mom has a set on her goldwing cuz she is vertically challenged and cant reach the ground. Its a lot cheaper then going full conversion. And if i want to yake it out. Three bolts and its off, and bike is back to 2 wheels.

I am delighted for your mother. Seriously, I am.

But, I am still making fun of the training wheels.

I originally typed "f%^ing delighted," but I thought it sounded smug.

If you look close at the last pic, it looks like he has a knee brace.

If I get where I can't throw a leg over a seat I'll get one of those big step through scooters. Those things can run 80mph with no problem. I draw the line at trikes.

How can it be called a trike conversion? There are now FOUR wheels.
