I was also looking for more options.  Like the first two options - do you drive them with or without any adaptive devices?  If so, what type of adaptive device? 

There are several interesting options for motorcycles around now that give a three or four wheel motorcycle experience.  One of these is advertising on TV (the Can-am) 2 front wheels and one rear wheel.  They're appealing to the tail end of the baby-boomers and maybe my age bracket (40's).  Fun of a motorcycle but easier and "safer".

I'm working to get my 1963 scooter running and legal again so I can save gas around town.  The only pedal on that is a right side foot brake for the rear tire.

I just have to use my left foot. I have always driven automatic.
Thanks!

Here's mine and my tripod of a dog, Millie. The jeep is my main transport, the BMW is a for the fine days (and if I do something to my leg. Its a automatic)





(you can also see my kayak as well. Its a sit-on-top type. Real easy to use and loads of fun!)


Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.

Why isn't the Kayak sitting flat?  I've got an "ocean kayak" (brand name) and it's sit on top.  I know some have a rudder.

When I bought the kayak (mines a 'ocean kayak' as well. I have one of the fishing types) I also bought a pair of wheels that go underneath. It makes it very handy when after I unload it and want to bring it to the waters edge.
Heres a link... I didn't buy them here but it it'll show you what I mean.
