Rode a 3 wheeler once. Because I'm a motorcyclist, when it got tippy, I put my foot down and hit the back of my leg with the tire. Never tried one again.

I bought one of these brand new in 1985, I never crashed as hard on any of my dirt bikes than I did on that 350X. I swear it was out to kill me!

Depends on your comfort level...it is a tall bike, so you won't be able to flat foot, but left foot down at stops is enough for most experienced rider.
