Having two knee replacement,and short inseam,I fine riding two up a bit unsettling at slow speed. I think having a trike installed would solve the problem . I ride 75% of the time solo,and love the twisties. I herd good and bad on the TowPac,and I find it ti wide 63". The Danson is about 55" wide But it take a few hour to remove. The Voyager trike I have no info on how it handles,but it takes 5 to 10 minutes to remove . I think it is 55" wide more info please. Now the Yelvington is a true trike,and is a great looking trike but because it is new on the market I don't know how well it will last down the road.the reverse gear is a good option. Yelvington is the only one that has not email back.I would like some feed back on the Voyager and Yelvington. Thanks. motorcycle

I have a Danson. I doubt that a "few hours to remove" is any where near accurate. I have never given any thought to completely removing it, but if the installer were so stupid to not install a wider rear car tire on the bike, it would take in the neighborhood of 15 - 20 minutes to "uninstall" -- about double that to "reinstall".

Like any trike, it shakes it's head a bit (rake?). Other than that I have had NO problems with it. The head shake is no worse than it was before I put the DANSON on -- seems to me that the almighty Honda screwed up when they chose to use a single triple tree thereby making it damned difficult to alter the rake. Of course, this is all my humble opinion.

Im running a DS tire at this time with no intention to go back to MC tire. The rear tire wears faster on outrigger trikes. you said it take 20 minutes to remove,and 40 minutes to install. Did you have to cut any body parts to fit? motorcycle

I said "reinstall". The initial installation took several hours. Yes, I did have to do some body trimming, I don't think that they will be very visible IF I ever take it off.

All in all, I like the product, I like the result.
