    Test: Yamaha’s Niken Leaning Trike Does In Fact Have More Traction

    Yamaha’s Claims About This Bike are True The Yamaha Niken is an odd machine. It features two wheels up front, one in the rear and lets you lean like you would on a regular motorcycle. While it looks a bit odd, it undeniably works. Many people have ridden it at this point and the vast ...

    Fuzzy, that is hilarious ans well said Sir... I too have been kicking that idea around. It just looks so cool and i'll bet it is a blast to ride, but as you have mentioned, i too can not afford to be throwing that much money out right now. Maybe in a few years i can grab a nice used one. Right now i have many miles to enjoy putting on my NC and a grand Alaska trip to finish planning for next year, Alaska June 2020! :{)
