Decided to start riding again after 30 some years. However due to a couple motorcycle accidents an 67 years of hard living had to go with a recumbent trike. The choice has worked out well and I have no back problems what so ever! By the way I have also gotten my wife to begin riding and we are enjoying the trails down here in southern Florida. No snow but we do have to watch out for the occasional rattle snake or alligator.
