It's a bolt on kit - can't remember the company that makes them right now.  It's also "removable".

Disappointed. I was hoping to see a full on conversion, but alas. 'twas only a bolt on.

That's not a trike.. It's a Connie with training wheels..

doesn't look too bad. Is it a voyager trike kit? That's what it looks like to me. Wouldn't be bad if someone could lift the beast anymore and doesn't want a goldwing or canam.

But it doesn't look too good, either. ???

I have a friend who's wife has a Shadow with this kit.  It gets her in the wind, because she's uncomfortably with the 2 wheel thing for now.  But yeah, 4 wheels isn't a TRIke.  :)

ehhh if I couldnt handle the bike (or any bike) A trike conversion wouldnt be my first choice, but for the price it might be the only choice or riding.

For those who criticize, I do hope that (god, the universe, karma, fortune) smiles on you and you never have to make a choice to not ride or go with the terrible choice such as this.

No offense intended to any disabled individual, especially any Veteran.  Please ride whatever makes you happy.

However, lots of folks in better shape than myself ride the training wheels contraptions.  Personally, I had rather just get a sporty convertible and be done with it.

Good luck to ye.

Hey it's all good.  Not everyone can love motorcycling as much as everyone.  Some people would prefer to be as close to motorcycling as they can, even if it includes a trike or trike kit, other don't love it as much and could more easily give it up.  ;)
