    Old fart question:

    My ex-brother in law's wife, age 69, just had a seizure and is prohibited from driving for six months. Nicky wants to get her a three-wheeler so she can get to and from town.

    Anybody know about these creatures, specifically which might be sh1t and which shinola?

    Been forever since I paid any attention, but Worksman was well regarded.

    We sell Torker Tristars and Sun. I think the Torkers are a little nicer.

    Torker = Seattle Bike Supply
    Sun = J&B Importers

    dude.... It would be just as much of a no go to have a seizure on a trike. Too stable to flip over during seizure, the rider would probably just end up rolling out into traffic.

    I had one for Burning Man over a few seasons of going. I am more than pretty sure I passed out on it a few times, or maybe even had some drug related seizure.

    I'm still here. Your BIL will be fine.

    This quite possibly the best testimonial for owning a trike ever.

    If you somehow had video of yourself having a drug related seizure, we would all be forever indebted to you. I would gladly supply the drugs to help facilitate this....
