Its 2016, Bikernet is 20 years old, and I’m old enough to remember when Kennedy was shot. A lot of shit has gone down, and it seems to be getting thicker and thicker. As the editor of BikernetTrikes this Triking Viking has ridden a lot of three wheelers since the inception of Bikernet Trikes, the last Trike-devoted publication standing.
In retrospect, Bikernet Trikes has really been on the forefront of all things three wheels for some time now. I was inspired by this simple shot, probably the late ‘60s of a young girl kickin’ back on a trike tire and was struck by how three wheels were always cool.
Chicks dig ‘em. They are safe and comfortable and dudes can ride the hell out of a three wheels—more so today than ever. I am talking rain, mud, ice and snow--three wheels go. We will bring you more Trike road tests this year, and more reports on Trike technology. Plus, we will follow the 5-Ball Racing Team as they build the first Bonneville, Belle Tank, 3-wheeled streamliner.

I would love to see any cool old photos anyone can dig up of vintage trikes. In fact, if anyone has any stories about their old trikes and photos, I will post them on BikernetTrikes.
I will start the New Year looking back to the past. In fact, I think I am going to talk Bandit into building me the coolest retro 5-Ball rat trike in So Cal. Might be hard to beat Rocky Lows real deal but I’m thinkin’ the past is a good place to start.

Thanks for hangin’ with BikernetTrikes and send me your photos, ideas, and let’s make this year great!
Ride Safe! The Triking Viking
