I am new to riding a Goldwing Trike, when riding on a road that has a lot of manholes in the middle of the road, do I want to ride over them with my front tire or try to go around and hit them with my back left or right tire?
I don't really know sorry.But I wanted to chime in.With all the techknowlegly out there why is it we can put a man on the moon send bombs down a stove pipe make it rain and we can make a pot hole cover even with the road ?? they seem to be two inches high or an inch low or some there in between> Sally

Well, I dunno if it really matters to the bike. I know, if I can avoid a pothole with the front wheel, I will. That's as long as I do not have to do some crazy gyroscopic maneuver to do it. I would think that it would depend where on the roadway the manhole cover is, how deep or high it is, etc. If it is nice and even with the road, of course, it would not matter. Here in this town we have manholes in the left of the lane, the right of the lane, straddling the lane dividing line, everywhere, so we pretty much just pay attention all the time.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

JR, my experience with riding trike for the last 2 years I have found first if I can avoid a manhole without dodging too much or crossing lanes I will. Second, if I have to hit a manhole I try not to hit it with the front tire. Even tho it's almost impossible to kick up one, I sure don't want to do it with the front tire. After that it don't really matter which rear tire you hit it with. Good luck, ride safe.
