We got a tandem bicycle, but a fairly unique one --it has the passenger (the "stoker") in front, so that I can see if he decides to "dismount" early, yet I can still steer -- my seat is a traditional one, but his is recumbent, so I can see over him. Also, he doesn't have pedal all the time (but it sure helps!).
Problem is, as of now, the furthest I've gotten with him is two feet down the driveway; but it's a start. And my wife says he had a big smile on his face.
He has an adult trike, but it's big, heavy, and slow. No fun there; with the tandem we can (someday, I hope) fly down the road with the wind in our faces.
