not a lot of motorbikes


Not so many motorbikes on this blog for quite some time, unfortunately I have not been able to get on or off one for last last two years due to muscle problems in my leg and now use a stick when I'm out. At the same time hubby has been too busy to use the bikes or even visit bike events.
We have thought about adding a third wheel to the Guzzi and making it into a trike but suspect that we will get frustrated with having to sit in traffic etc so we may look to getting a campervan of some kind.

Once things calm down, I'm sure that bikes will feature more but for the time being I have been looking at the pedal variety, since actually lifting my foot off the pedal to reach the ground is an issue I found somewhere to have a play on an adult tricycle.

More difficult to fall off and it sort of gets round the fact that I have never ridden a pushbike before in my life!! We went on a 5 mile ride and the only problem was when we reached a gentle hill I had to get off and walk as I haven't the strength to pedal hard but that will come. This is a hire bike but we will be going back for another go very soon!!

And it has a basket on the back!!!!

Have a great weekend x

My mom had one of those trikes for a couple of years, and she loved it! I tried it out when we visited her, but I am a certified klutz. I was able to keep my balance, but I didn't have the coordination to pedal and steer at the same time. Still, when I retire next year, I'm thinking of getting one. I imagine they are great exercise, and I'm sure I could master it with a little practice. Good luck!

I've never seen a bike like that. How clever!

It sounds like an excellent solution.
