Hi Debra. I ride both, but I find myself on a trike more and more. You will get the hang of it. You will be able to pull in your handlebars and make a complete circle and U-turn with no problem. Easy peasy! Like Genevieve said, you don't have the "lean" on a trike for these swerves, but you can use both brakes in a curve. That is an advantage, but remember using your brakes more may cause another rider behind you to go wonky seeing all that red so let them go in front of you instead. Yes, you will be able to go through those cones like a pro after a little practice, but remember your width.

As you have already found out, what your front tire misses, your rears will hit so those moves in turning are important since you also have extra weight and don't want to tip over. Your timing factors in more in riding a trike since those fast moves to avoid something could be dangerous. Good luck to you! It is a bit different than two wheels, but you still get enjoy the ride. It is fun!

I have not ridden in many years and have been practicing in a parking lot. I have been doing circles both ways, figure 8s, stop/start, braking. I have a Kawasaki Vulcan with a Voyager trike kit, so will I be able to accomplish much of this on mine?

Debra,
Because you have a trike, you won't be able to achieve the swerve and dip that's shown in the video, but you can still practice swerving to avoid objects in the road.
