Most people will only stand for a lady's trike. Wink

Looks like a Merseytravel bus to me, MM has been training too hard again.
Or did someone steal his front wheel.

Hi Folk Sad , Titter ye not" as Frankie Howerd would say! "Every picture tels a story" it is said, its also said "A picture is worth a thousand words"! Well have another one "I want to tell you a story" (Max Bygraves). Sans car these days I chose to use trains to cover large areas to remote TA events, so it was when I was travelling over the Pennines to Gilberdyke for the "Mike Dixie Mem 10", good course enter next years event! Arriving at liverpool Lime St., Station I was to discover that the first part of my journey, 3 legs involved, was to be a "Bus Replacement Service between there & Warrington Evil or Very Mad . Off I toddle to face the "Fat Controller" who piped up "No Worry" Shocked . "It will be a double decker, which it was. Cut to the chase a couple of passengers were asked to take a seat a little further rearward, whereupon he & I carried the trike over the "Anti Buggy Bar", stood it on end, then placed where you see it. I strapped it to the bar, then removed the front wheel to avoid inconvenience to others. Not surprisingly there was also a similar problem at the other end at Brough, but that was merely a coach, so the machine went in the boot! Very Happy . The fact that I forgot to tighten the wheel nuts at tuther end caused me issues on the event Embarassed  Embarassed  Embarassed , but that is not relevant Rolling Eyes . My photograph ensured that my story should be believed, something which Rail employees still question? So Lay Off MLR, or I'll get even Wink . TTFN MM

Balls(bearing) or nuts, it's all the same to us, MM. Laughing

Slightly disappointed that the large suitcase was not yours.

I spent ages trying to work out how you attached it without the front end lifting.  Confused  

Brightening the image slightly revealed all.  Cool

That is a heartening story indeed. It's got me thinking that maybe I could get my trike onto the train to get out of Tokyo. Otherwise, it's a minimum of 20 miles along heavily congested roads to get to anything resembling countryside...

If you could get it on the high speed train you could set a near unbreakable world record for a trike. Cool

You'll need an aero helmet to look the part for the paparazzi when you get off. Wink
