The man (Ed) of the couple we go out with quite often and travel with some in the winter has been a Harley rider for many years and has been pushing Ivan (my hubby) to get one. Since Ivan hadn't ever been a rider he wasn't interested until trikes came out.
Until 2012 Harley didn't factory make trikes. Each one had to be converted from a bike to the tree wheeled variety after market. In case you don't know, Harley Davidson motorcycles are EXPENSIVE. There's a reason for the HD. It means a hundred dollars. Everything with the Harley Davidson brand costs at least $100. While that's not entirely true it is an expensive brand name.
This past winter Ed heard about a used Harley trike. It was a 2012 factory trike. Not only that but Ivan and Ed knew the guy who had owned it. That comes from living in a rural area. The trike was at a dealer about an hour away. The owner, Nub, had souped it up with cams and other stuff I have no idea about.
To make the long story short, Ivan bought the trike. Now they try to ride at least once a week, hopefully twice. On those days they ride and eat. I like not having to cook, getting the remote and he gets male pattern bonding time. Hurray for Two Wheel Tuesday.
