    Trikes are tricky to ride and control. There should be mandatory requirements that if one is buying a trike a trike riders coarse should be taken. I own a trike and was an ATV instructor. You ride a trike just like and ATV. A trike is nothing more than a larger and more powerful ATV. It does take practice.
