    As the thread title says, would you drive a three-wheeled car/motorcycle? Or maybe you already do? I'm curious to hear people's thoughts on them, as they're not something you see on the road every day.

    Myself, I found I was enough of a danger to myself and others when driving something with four wheels, so I dread to think how I'd get on with only three, but I do feel they have a certain charm to them. :yes:

    I'd drive the **** out of it.

    Are three wheels more complicated to drive?

    I'd be willing to try a trike, but a Reliant Robin? No thanks. :hand:

    Seriously, you learned to drive in one? Sounds hard.

    No I dont think I would. They are rubbish and keep tipping over if you do a big turn.

    Oh absolutely!!
    Engine swap it for a superbike engine and then let the fun begin!
    150mph on 3 wheels! Great fun!

    But yeah I'd drive one! Looks like a right laugh!
