I have a Ryker Rally. I rode as a passenger on a two-wheeled motorcycle for many years and I've taken both the two- and three-wheel classes. I broke my right ankle very badly 18 months ago and breaking it again would be disastrous. It'd gotten to the point that I didn't want to be a passenger on the Harleys or Indian that my husband rides. Just recently, my husband's Harley slid on gravel and almost went down on a piece of plastic on the road. The Ryker has me in the wind riding on my own and I'm loving it!

Thanks so much for the great article. I am 59, just got my endorsement, and for me the Ryker is a no brainer. I have never learned to ride a motorcycle and know that learning to use a clutch would take me years.

I recently went to a BMW rally riding two-up. At this rally there were three women riding the larger Can-Am trikes. What I learned from these women was they had medical issues and were not able to ride two wheels any longer. I have been told by men that people who ride trikes do so because they can’t ride on two wheels. I proudly said well that’s me.

At my age I don’t want to wait to ride or wait for a man to take me on a ride. I have already signed up for a class to see if I can handle the Ryker. I am super excited to ride on my own also the cost is doable for a person on a fixed income.

I recently purchased my Ryker Rally after a year and a half of doing my due diligence to learn to ride my Honda Rebel. I am a petite woman at 90 pounds, 4 feet, 11 inches. I struggled big time. I even took the safety drivers course and had my Rebel fitted with reduced reach clutch but I never got 'comfortable' even riding in our secluded neighborhood much less on a busy Chicago road.

My husband who is an avid rider was so supportive but understood as he would tell me, "If you're that terrified, you have no business riding. We will find you a bike are comfortable on."

So I continue riding as a passenger with him on his Indian. This past winter/early spring I was introduced to the Ryker Rally and it was love a first sight and test ride. Growing up riding three and four wheelers made this a natural fit for me. I was out of the gate on signing day and put 25 miles going home. I have the confidence on this trike that I desperately wanted on my Honda. I am Loving the experience of being a Ryker owner. It doesn't matter if has two wheels or three, it all about being safe and having a fun ride. You do you and keep on riding.

I don’t quite understand why the Can-Am should be a good first “motorcycle” for beginner riders. The handling is completely different, even much more physical, and really has nothing to do with motorcycling. Riding a Can-Am is not developing skills that would be transferable to riding a motorcycle, so there is no advantage to starting with it as a first step to get into motorcycling. It’s its own class of a vehicle, more similar to an ATV or snowmobile. So it would make more sense to call it an alternative to a motorcycle but not a good first beginner bike.
