Motorcycle or quadricycle

I am guessing motorcycle, be good to see or use a chair out, not so keen on trikes though, but legality are 3 wheels where 2 or good and 4 are bad on closures and restriction.

Green laning on an outfit is a hoot.

a few 4wheel TROs in Hants. A great victory for those who got this concession back in the day.

I Followed a cr500 chair and a rotax600 wasp up pen y fan years ago. No engine breaking on the 500 on the way down. Sod that.

Agreed, but where does three wheels fit on regarding motorcycle and four wheels?

In the middle I'd guess?

I think it was more originally as a concession so the lanes could be used for trials.

A few in the west country use chairs for green laning.

Don't know anyone who has a road legal trail trike. I know someone who was building one as they bought some of my old dr spares to make it. Whether they ever finished it I don't know.

I had a Suzuki SP400 with a trials sidecar that I used on Lakedistrict green lanes for a couple of years.
A sidecar makes even moderate green lanes very interesting as you don't normally have to worry about side slopes on a solo.
I did manage to roll it a few times and it always rolls with the bike coming over the sidecar, which is not brilliant as an SP400 is a heavy brute.
The biggest advantage is that your passenger (sidecar monkey) is responsible for opening all of the gates and they are great fun in the snow.
