Default Trike

As you may have read, my health is going to make me stop riding a bike, so I am looking at trikes. Has anyone here seen/ridden, know anyone who has, tried one of these: Suzuki Boulevard 800 Kit

I'm just starting to look, so any experience or opinions would be appreciated.

Jay,
I don't know anything about the cass county, but I put a voyager kit on my brothers HD and I know that they make a kit for the C50.

Heres the link: http://www.mtcvoyager.com/

Their kit has a lot more to offer than the other one, as I read the ad and looks better.

If you need help getting it done, come down and I think I can talk Steve into helping us put it on.
If I remember correctly, it took the better part of 1 day to install the kit on my brothers bike. [My brother reminded me that most of the first and second days were spent putting hand grenades on as foot pegs and Viet Nam Veteraning his ride with helmet sissy bars, flag mounts, and beer.

I looked at those, but it seems that they are making your bike into a quad, rather than a true trike.

How does he feel about how it rides?

If you gonna trike,(as I will do one day) do it with independent suspension and reverse. Go sit on one of those solid axles and try to back it up. More $$ but well worth it. You'll be a happy camper.

Just get a real trike. I put a voyager kit on my friends Nomad. What a waste of time and money. Here is one for you.

I have just been through a similar quest: four wheels, three wheels, two wheels. If you want to keep your bike, a 4-wheel kite is a viable option. If you can't continue to ride solo, consider selling the bike and getting a true trike. I have seen used C50 trikes on CL for about the same cost as a new kit plus what someone would pay for yours.

Looks great, unfortunately, that is just not even in the realm of consideration, budgetwise. That is close to what I spent on my new truck, and I just can't handle it.
