I am a 63 year old handicapped person who loves to ride a motorcycle. Many years ago, I had an accident that injured my left knee, leaving my leg weak and unable to support the bike and myself at a stop sign. My Honda was in storage for some time. During this time, I had additional health problems requiring me to use oxygen 24/7. But I never gave up on my desire to ride. 

After research, I decided on a company in the Chicago area who could convert my bike to a 3-wheeler giving me the stability I needed. The TowPac conversion kit keeps the original two wheels of the motorcycle and adds two additional wheels to the rear of the bike. It attaches with one pin and three bolts making it both easy to connect and disconnect. This gave me the stability I needed.
