    Please consider changing the Hacks thread to Hacks and Trikes . I realize the subheading indicates 2wheels + but I think with the popularity of trikes , reverse trikes ( Can Am Spyder ) it deserves equal billing . I love hacks btw and used to own a Ural gear -up. I now own a 2020 can am spyder limited. Thanks for your consideration.

    I think due to the major differences between Trikes and sidecars, Trikes should have their own separate section. BTW, are there any "Adventure" style Trikes?

    Well that’s not a bad idea at all and makes sense . As to Adventure style trikes check out the new 2022 Can Am Ryker Rally . It’s being promoted as an on road/off road reverse trike . Although I have , and will keep , a Spyder RT limited I’m seriously thinking about replacing my dual sport KTM 690 with the Ryker Rally . The reason being most all of my off-road riding at my weekend place is county maintained dirt roads of which they’re 100’s of miles of . I just like to explore dirt roads combined with county paved backroads .

    May I suggest you post your request in the appropriate forum instead of hi-jacking my thread? Trikes are not sidecars, totally agree with that. A "sidecar" is attached to a motorcycle, a trike may have started life as one, but is no longer . . . . Thanks!

    I apologize as it wasn’t my intent- kinda new at this ! My intent was to make a suggestion that , in my mind, would improve the overall forum but I shouldn’t have trespassed on your territory. I started out with an email to admin who suggested I post on the forum which I did but received no response so I was grasping at straws and when I read your thread that mentioned Baldy I piggy backed on that hoping the powers to be would see it - won’t happen again .

    No worries! I *think* it takes an Act of God to have a new Forum created. A sacrificial goat may be in order . . . .

    In the past, we have relegated discussions of Can-Am reverse trikes to "Road Warriors". Perhaps Road Warriors could have a Trikes sub-forum, like the way the GSpot has two sub-forums--one for boxers and one for in-lines.

    That's my suggestion, but my belief is that such a sub-forum would grow cobwebs.
