Trikes, reverse trikes, training wheels, sidecar rigs or two wheels... I get them all. Everyone has different reasons for choosing the type of ride they want. The important part is that they are riding. They're out there having fun, bonding with others or with nature... or themselves. They're supporting the business of motorcycling... even giving money to the companies that make tacky stickers to put on your scoot.

I've had sidecar rigs and currently have a two-wheeler. Different animals providing a different riding experience.

Cheers to you if you ride, no matter what you ride.... and you still get a cheers even if you don't have the greatest taste in personalizing your motorcycle. Too each his or her own.

Ride safe, stay cool....

Yup.

I bet most of the guys bashing mr. and mrs. cool will not be riding when they get old. Probably won't have a 50 year marriage either. If I were to run into them you can bet I'd be laughing *with* them. You can't ride around like that without a good sense of humor.

I'll bet there is some sort of joke behind those MR & Mrs Cool signs. I agree that they probably have a sense of humor.

One standard non-verbal response is this:



you'll need to find something gender-appropriate. I thumbed thru 5 pages of Google but couldn't see anything....

since we can't see the rider's helmet, is has to be directly in front of the child's helmet, so the same head angle.

We have turns, they are all 90 degrees onto another street. No banking. The only banked curves are on ramps and off ramps with concrete walls to run into.

I find the banked curves are easier than the flat 90's though.

Florida, 11 curves in 318 miles. Oh well, that's just how it is, mostly. At least North Fl. gets a little hilly, down here it's flat and straight.

Can't we all just get along?
