    For anybody who has either kit on their 650 would love to know how you like it. Will take the good and the bad. How is the cornering on them and how stable is the ride. Has anybody had the Voyager and traded for the Tow-Pac or vice versa and why did you change. Also if anybody knows someone that has expierence with either of these I would love to hear from you..........

    do you really think that a 650 will have enough power to properly work?
    im just asking, i dont know!

    If I'm thinking right, both of those still keep the stock wheel, and the two added on are just for looks, and don't actually do anything buy roll. And one of them comes standard with very small wheels and tires, that look like they belong on a golf cart. JMO, but looking at it from a visual and engineering standpoint, I dont like either one. Unfortunately, I don't think a "real" trike kit is available for the 650, which would look a lot better.

    Of course, this is all just my own opinion, and if you really like them, and like the looks of them, go for it. It's your bike (or trike), mod it however you want.

    Oh, and red, yes, I think the 650 would have enough power. You underestimate what these 650's are capable of.

    I know someone makes a conversion to the 650 that is not just a big set of training wheels. I have seen people with them on other forums. If I can remember who it was that did it, I'll post it.

    And as Kirk pointed out, the 650 is plenty powerful enough to roll as a trike.

    Yeah, definitely post it if you can find it, I'd like to see it. I'd think it would look pretty good.

    After 18 months of sitting, I just put on a Voyager kit, and I AM RIDING !!!!! I am 49 and female and 110 lbs. and am so happy. Not having rode alot prior to the kit (I was uncomfortable on two wheels) I didn't have the riding habits like leaning etc. so it is so cool to be comfortable and not afraid anymore. I call them my training wheels ...and it looks great. It has provided me the ability to get to learn to know my bike, gear changes, braking and more. I live on a levee rode with potholes and ever changing asphalt conditions with narrow rodes. Plus steep exits and entrances to and from my house.The kit is removable at any time and back on so if I want to I can ride on two wheels but for now....I am riding and smiling....and it does look cool. I work at a biker bar and everyone was pretty impressed with it...I have turned some others on to it. Some have physical issues and don't want to quit riding and they are putting on the kit to continue their love of being on a bike still. It is different but different can be good....whatever gets or keeps you riding...do it.....and like anything....take it slow and get to know the handling of it with the kit. Check out the video from www.trikemanusa.com.....

    No found mine on Ebay with custom paint, wheels and lights and double suspension almost new for 2700.00......Trikes go for alot more than that and I already had a great Yamaha just sitting so I now have less than 6000.00 into it and that's alot less than a full on trike in as good as condition as my bike and I can always sell the kit again should I choose to go on two wheels permanently.....
