    Cold and tired from the ride this morning and this afternoon just sitting around checking out new bikes. Ran up on the 2019 Yamaha Niken GT. Very much different.

    I would definitely look at this if I lived somewhere where there was ice/snow. I like riding year round and this looks like it would be the ticket. I have been on a Can Am Spyder and did not like how one has to hold on in turns because it does not lean. I have been told traditional trikes require a lot of effort to get them to turn.

    If they are anything like the 3 wheel tilting scooters then they will be awe inspiring in corners.
    If it had a shaft I'd be thinking more favourably.

    I had a test ride on one couple of months back,for me it would take a bit of time to get used to ridin one,you can push it hard round the corners. I decide to stick with the Rocket !!!

    A pedal trike is on my list.

    The Niken seems to be "me too" -- I came "this close" to buying the Piaggio MP3 500 ABS
