    Hi, I'm Ed, I've been riding HD for 20 years first on two wheels, and as of April on three. I purchased a new 2011 Triglide and I'm never riding on two wheels again! It was hard breaking old riding habits like pointing the bike and balancing at stops, but after a few hours, I was able to master my new ride. My wife loves being a passenger, and is looking forward to learning how to ride the new trike as well. The trike is still relatively stock, except for the following: corbin two-up touring saddle with rider backrest, Klockwerks 81/2 inch wide shield, Helibar handlebars, Avon grips, and black mirrors. Next changes stage1 Ness Big sucker, and VH slip-on mufflers, as trike needs to breathe easier. My wife and I are both retired, and we live in the central part of California, about 60 miles from Yosemite National Park, and two hours from the SF Bay area. Hope to hear from other trike riders.

    Ride Safe,
    Ed

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    Once the Mrs. learns how to ride the trike she'll want one too.
    Congrats on the new trike, ride safe and enjoy.
