Yes they do have their place. I hope to ride in open air till I die. I guess one of the many things I can't wrap my mind around is "training wheels " on a bike being ridden by a able bodied guy. Now, don't get me wrong, riding is riding, but i believe in that saying about riding mopeds. And I think training wheels should be included. Don't do it in public.
FWIW, I'm 66 now, several medical issues, but still able to ride.
As it stands right now, I don't believe, if I could no longer handle 2 wheels, that I'd get a Trike.
As far as Mopeds or Scooters are concerned....
I was told by an old, crotchety biker, that men who choose to ride Scooters & Mopeds instead of motorcycles, do so because they enjoy feeling the breeze on their vaginas.
