    Welcome to the forum. Maybe look in to a sidecar. I think that is what I would do.

    Sidecar rig is what I'm looking at going to, with knee replacement not doing well holding heavy bike is getting harder. And since I don't ride fast anyway, we are looking at Urals.

    AT the 2010 International AVA rally I saw more than 1/2 dozen of them, some of the folks got them cause of bad knees. Others because they felt safer as they aged while one simply said it was easy on easy off, so when he wanted to tow &/or ride two up he didn't have to worry nearly as much.
    I say look into it, if it's like the other makes/models they bolt on fairly quickly and can be taken off just as quick. One make I believe it's just a matter of pulling two bolts and a pin and you just drive out of it and you're two wheeling again with no noticeable hardware dangling!

    Have alway's thought about when the time comes I might go with something like this: http://mcprw.com/ (watch the video). I think I would really miss feeling the bike leaned over in a turn. Although some of the trike technology today one Goldwings and other touring bikes is really trick and well thought out.

    I would go for a hack... Sidecars are Kool... Training wheels work but,,, you still have to change the rear tire and now another tire on the training wheels... If you want to ride a trike,,, convert to a real trike... But I would do the side car...

    A friend of mine has a Voyager trike kit on a Honda Shadow and he seems to like it. It scares the crap out of me trying to ride it because I'm so used to two wheels instead of the four. It will just take you a short while to adjust to it, it likes slow and small steering inputs to be smooth on it.

    Personally for me I would go with either a sidecar, or an actual trike conversion. My friend is looking to upgrade to a Goldwing with a complete trike conversion in the near future.
