A Lady on a Motorized Three-Wheeler

This morning while driving up main street, I saw a vehicle on the road in the distance. The closer I got to it, I realized that it was a woman riding on a motorized, three-wheeled bike! It was down around 20 degreesF this morning, so she was really bundled up warm. Nope, I didn't have to go around her. This lady was clipping along going 25 mph, which is the speed limit in town! She was out enjoying the day, in spite of the cold weather that we've been having Photo:NOT MINE Borrowed from Pixabay

Perhaps she was a disabled person? Or a new system invented to avoid using the car, as long as weather permits? However, a 2-wheel electric bike would be enough for me.

She carries groceries back home, in the rear basket. The three-wheeled bike is best, for her needs.

@kobesbuddy Exactly. You must know that two-wheeled motorcycles, well, are not very good friends! They do not allow you any chance of error. Just nothing, you find yourself on the ground, hoping not to suffer the consequences. I'll personally say that I drove for a long, two-wheeled motor vehicles, of each cylinder. Even up to 150cc, which by law, I would not have been allowed. For that one needed a driving license higher than mine!

@alberello75 I have ridden on a motorcycle, but never drove one myself.

A three-wheeled bike is not common here but in many Asian countries they are popular to transport people on hire, alternate to taxi cars - siva

I am really glad to hear that she was well bundled up. I'm glad she was seemingly enjoying herself. Those bikes are not cheap, I now, I've looked at them before.

Anything that has an engine, the price gets hiked up a lot!

@kobesbuddy Yes it certainly does. I've done some research on motors for bicycles. It's been a few years, but I feel like just getting a kit (so just the motor) was about $300.00 and up.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Wow that's still a lot of money, for an accessory on a bike.

I have one like that! It is a customized bike(trike) which I asked a machine shop man to assemble for me because I did not know how to ride a bike; am afraid of falling, and I wanted to use it for exercise in the morning inside our village. Mind has no motor, it is a manual one with pedals.

A man use to ride his two wheel bike past, every day. Now, I think he has put it away for a while.

I used to ride motorcycles year round so I know 20 degrees at 25 mph hurts your face.

She had no shield or anything protective over her face, either.

I've seen motorized three-wheeled vehicles in our country but it was not that popular. People prefer either 4-wheeled automobiles or motorcycles with or without sidecar... Maybe it's about the price...
