There is an older couple that come to the local bike night that have a Voyager conversion on their bike.
If I had the money, I would have put one on my 750 so I could have ridden these past two seasons while waiting for my leg to heal. TommyV8, a local independant bike shop owner, sells these kits and said they weigh about #150. It would not be like riding two wheels, and would suck up some power, but at least I would have had my face in the wind!

I'd be interested to se if the trike in question is actually a trike or the Voyager Trike Kit that retains the rear drive wheel and just adds outboard rear wheels and fenders.
I have seen a couple of these in person and they are pretty slick,expensive as well.

Here is a link to some pics of vn750 and vn500 trikes that hyperbuzzin found about 4 years ago.

|kanuck69||Most definitly, trikes are custom built. Heck, as usual there aren't even kits for our scoots. It would be a custom for sure. I'd love to see some pics of it & what they did on yours!|

Seems dangerous and probably not street legal to me. I have never heard of a Kawi factory street trike of any size. I don`t know if Kawi ever made a 3 wheel ATV though.
There are training courses available for learning to ride trikes and sidecar rigs or hacks as they are sometimes called. Apparently H-D requires that you watch a 15-20 minute training video before they let you drive it away on their new Electra-Glide trike. I`m pretty sure that`s not enough training, but it is better than nothing I guess.

|VN750Rider/Jerry||Did Kawasaki ever make a VN750 trike, or is it a conversion? I have seen a lot of bikes converted to trikes, especially Goldwings. I never understood how the shaft drive, designed for a single motorcycle wheel, was strong enough to drive 2 car wheels/tires without breaking or wearing out really fast. I think I would have problems with a trike, I'd probably flip it in the first corner, when I tried to lean it over.|

Welcome to the Vulcan madness blitzer. Here in Canada we know something about snow, and a trike wouldn`t be my first choice for transportation in winter. LOL However I do remember a kid at my high school 40 years ago, who rode a little 100cc bike with an outrigger wheel on it all winter in temps down to ~-35*F.
What other bikes do you ride?
Also what does "craic" in your OP mean?

|flitecontrol||Welcome to the forum. Have seen pics of VN750 trikes, but they are few and far between.|
