I'm not in the slightest bit surprised. What got me into riding in 2000, I was fighting with a ex-business partner, and we were both trying to kill each other with stress. I took someones bike out for a innocent little ride, and WOW, what a stress reliever. At 40 years of age, I got my motorcycle licence and never looked back. I look back at these last 19 years and must say, what a life changing event. I'm extremely lucky to have someone like my wife, that went with the flow, and decided to try, and does go with me on many trips and group rides. I don't take that for granted, because I know a lot of the spouses will not participate in the sport or lifestyle. Tammy (Mrs. Badrider) and I have a whole new other set of friends, and been to places that I would never have been without riding. And I will say, riding on a Wing, there is nothing like traveling first class!

Every man dies, not EVERY man truly LIVES!

I agree but in my case I enjoy riding 33% more than most.

When you share the road with your best friend in every state in continental U.S. and 9 Canadian Provinces from the Pacific to the Atlantic, you will have very little stress.

It's all about the ride!!!!!

I assume you arrived with that 33% because you ride a trike.........
If that is the case.... I will have to disagree with your math........
33% of 2 wheels would be 2/3 of a wheel.
Actually 50% of two wheels would be = to your extra wheel

Soooooooo..... you would actually enjoy riding 50% more than most.

Just thought I would help you out a bit!!

The only time I can think off that it didn’t work is when I had the blrillant idea to ride to work in downtown Atlanta at rush hours ( I only did that once )
