I saw a lot of Sportsters with four wheels in a training wheel type configuration. Several had trailer hitches, and several appeared to be removable. I guess if you are feeling tippy you bolt on the other two wheels for security. While I like a nice side hack and would have one if I had the room, I think trikes and these other three and four wheelers are just weird, but to each his own.

...No 400 mile side trips this year. We took one side trip to the Hualapai Mountain Resort in the mountains above Kingman, for a great steak dinner. Hualapai Mountain Resort is high enough in the mountains that it is much cooler than Laughlin.
...We also took the short jaunt to Oatman and on to Kingman via old Route 66. I'll have photos of Oatman later.
We are at Lone Pine, Ca, where we leave Hwy 395 and head into Death Valley. That's Mt. Whitney in the background, it's the highest point in the lower 49 states at 14,96f t. above sea level. It just shows how rugged this country is, that the highest parts of the United States and the lowest are within a few miles of each other.
This is the Panamit Valley, its the valley just before Death Valley. I love how the road just seems to go on forever.
