Don't you think these "motorcyclist" would have a issue with that?
Can't we just call them: "tricyclists?" Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

I think the thing is DANGEROUS! I've ridden one: first thing I noticed is a lack of front brake lever. After 40 years of riding motos, emergency braking is instinctive. The Spyder's integrated braking system is great in that all you do is stomp on the brake pedal and the ABS handles everything quite nicely. Get back aboard a bike with regular brakes and have to emergency brake and you're gonna do what? STOMP ON THE REAR BRAKE? You just could not have a Spyder and a regular braking moto in your garage. One or the other, but not both. Your life depends on your ability to safely emergency brake. You do/will NOT have time to remember what kind of braking system you're on!

Why DKW, you shiftless bastard...get it? DKW? Shiftless? Haw hahhahha. I get a kick out me...
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
