Well, we're not wealthy by any means. This trike will be contingent upon me paying off my car. So by this time next year, I should be good to go.
My husband rides a Harley FXLR, and I miss riding with him...although I suppose I still could, I'd feel much more relaxed on a trike. Even before my paralysis, I was always worried that my right leg would fall off of the peg and go under the tire, or I'd burn myself on the exhaust without knowing it. Now I also have to consider the jarring on the spine.
And I've seen your artwork, so I don't think it would take too many paintings to save up enough for a hefty down payment on a trike. Your work is wonderful.
