Three wheeler electric bikes

I no longer feel safe on a bike

Getting on is hard

My feet are difficult and Alberts advise to lay it down more doesnít help, itís heavy

Sometimes it knocks me off balance and several times the pedals have gouged out my skin

So I think just give up

Actually I have just given up

If Iím honest Iím afraid of it

But would a three wheeler help

And could we use it in the motorhome

I nedsome transport

Thescooter didnít work out

I felt afraid, shookwith anxiety on it

And found when I got of it it my hips were on fire and I couldnt walk

Not that I can walk much anyway

So maybe I just need to give up motorhoming

When the hound goes,

Itís a possibility

Maybe the time is right to get yourself an electric "wheelchair". I hired one at NEC just after I had my major op in 2012. Was brilliant. Just don't take off down the M66 (teeheehee).



Don't think of it as a "Wheel- Chair", it's a form of transport for people who can't walk so far.


All you have to do to change your life is change your mind.

Beware the three wheeler Sandra, two wheels on a bumpy road/path follow each other, 3 will throw you all over the place, when I found I couldn't do proper motorcycles anymore I looked into trikes, and they are the worst thing to go anywhere on, four wheeled motability type jobbies are much better, you can also get them so they have a little trailer with another seat on so you can play trains on them, we hired one for the Lincoln show a while ago as my back and legs can get really bad if I walk too far, we had a whale of a time, and I got to see everything.

I suppose Iím just thinking it wonít fall over as I try to mount it

Sometimes my legs wonít lift my feet that high

And Albert holds it on a slope that I can with difficulty step though

But because it was with difficulty Iím already anxious

What if???????

I believe most mobility scooters have swivelling seats, so you can sit down facing outboard, so to speak, then swivel round to face forward.

There seem to be so many types and styles these days, I 'm sure they have something to suit every situation.

I'm daft and proud of it.

Quite right tugs, they also come to pieces to get them into a car (or Motorhome garage)

Iím not sure Iím ready for a mobility scooter yet

The idea of an electric trike was so I could peddle for exercise

I used to love the electric assisted bike

Got one of these for my wife before her knee operations, very useful, quite light and folds up to go in a small bag - http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBa...34119000&ver=0

When you expect nothing everything is a gift
