Richland Roadster has safety features like extra lights, running boards to protect your lower extremities and rear crash absorption. Side car technology allows your wheels to stay on the ground even if you run up on a curb.
Built sturdy enough to last, yet at 168 pounds it doesn't cause engine drag, even if you have a passenger. Customers who traded in a big expensive trike for a Richland Roadster report the weight difference allows for a more efficient ride with less wear and tear on the engine and the riders.
Richland Roadster doesn't lower your motorcycle. It is manufactured to align with the level of your bike. Many of the other trike kits on the market actually reduce your ground clearance by several inches.
Many Manufactures use fixed suspension systems attached to the motorcycle's axle or swing arms. Those motorcycle components lose their ability to function as designed, which results in the motorcycle and trike kit at war with each other. The combination then has the tendency to HIGH CENTER and turn very poorly as the inside wheel raises significantly OFF THE GROUND.
If you complain, you will be told to "RAKE" your front end. Will that fix it? No - just give you more leverage in the riding fight.
