Been looking at exchanging my bike to a trike, Road king or Tri Glide example is what I fancy, Big question, never ridden trikes before, any feed back on who produces the best trike conversions? Was looking at Harleys already converted as I'd like a bigger bike than what I have (sporster) dtpanthertrikes and trike design, they all claim to be the best conversion but I,ve no idea, and now HD manufacture a production line Tri Glide, which is even more expensive, I,d like to hear from anybody who's tried any of them out? Which is best, or am I looking in the wrong places, any help much appreciated.......

Hy i have had 2 harley trikes , the best was done by Barons in Andover imo , but with bits falling off both trikes i changed to honda goldwing gl 1800 , which was triked in usa , but panther trikes i think have the franchise for them , they are by far superior to harlies , for comfort and reliability , IMO , hope this helps , oops also appleyards do a gr8 conversion .
I'm grave digging a bit perhaps, but on the op, going from a bike to a trike could get scary unless you consider the dynamics on cornering and handleing. I went from bike to combo (outfit) and it scared the life out of me, but I had no choice if I wanted my head in the wind. Trike was my only option for a safer reliable ride but it threw a few questions up, mainly rear engined or front engined. Doubledenim, try a couple out if you want off the shelf, design yourself for something special (that may handle @ speed
