    Side Wheels

    A few years back, I had seen a rider riding with side wheels (looked like out riggers.).

    Has anyone seen this kind of setup.

    call or e-mail

    THANKS

    If you google "motorcycle outriggers" a lot of stuff comes up; everything from skid-test rigs to "landing gear" for heavy motorcycles, and snow riding outfits.

    Try a search for "ghost wheels".

    Be cautious. In some states these would make the bike a four-wheeler, and it wouldn't pass Federal safety requirements (seat belts, air bags, etc) for a four wheeled vehicle.

    Side wheels

    If you feel the need for four wheels so you don't fall over, those four wheels should probably be at the four corners, not three behind and one if front. Perhaps its time for a minivan. You could always roll the windows down and stick your head out if you miss feeling "the wind in your face". Works for the dog !

    My neighbor, who is in his 80s, traded off his Honda Valkyrie for a Can am Spider a couple of years ago.
    This year he had it out in April and just put it away for the winter a two weeks ago.
    As he parks on the street during the day, I can see he has the Spider out earlier and more often than when he had the Honda.
    Just some thought for you if age is what your up against.

    Well, you can always give it a try without buying.

    A you tube from the above company https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvC6w0RXG9I

    I just popped Can Am Spyder rental. PA. in the search bar.
    The two rental companies have PA. as their service area.
    Some of the other you tube videos are informative.
    When the time comes, I will go this route, rather that quit riding.
