1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    WAs wondering if there would be interest in adding an additional forum devoted to
    three wheeled devices (not sidecars). Such as the Can-Am Spyder, the Polaris slingshot
    and related.
    Although not specifically a motorcycle or a motorcycle with a sidecar; these new to the motorcycle scene machines are gaining in popularity?

    Any thoughts?

    There is already such a forum, called `Hacks`. This lists all 3 wheeled contraptions, not just only sidecars.

    and if you make any non-sidecar post there, you get a huge ration of shit from the hack guys who refuse to even acknowledge there are three wheel vehicles other than hacks. The long time hack guys in that thread don't want to learn or consider anything new. Some are real asshats about it. Read through some old threads there and you'll soon see the prevalent attitude.
    A three wheel non-sidecar section will never happen.

    She is 4'10" tall with a 24: inseam. 2 wheels don't work well for her. The only ones she fits were 125cc baby cruisers.

    I say it's a good idea, bring it on. Plenty of us someday will perhaps end up on three wheels due to handicaps, disabilities from motorcycle accidents or just AGE.
    For the closed minded that don't get that.... they can just peruse past the threads, much like some of us drift right by posts about Harley's new adventure bike or yet another broke down BMW thread that was started.
