I saw this while driving to St Louis today. Thought I'd pass it on. Sorry bout the quality, from cameraphone.
What the heck does he need those for? Should have saved his money for a convertible.
i think a bike with training wheels is called a trike.

There is a kit for older wings known as "landing gear" (training wheels) that would automatically lower when the speed dropped below 15mph!!!
well I dont know if you call $4000 cheap but, they are ok in my book for people that want to ride but are afraid of falling or for someone who has fallen before and cant take that chance again, or what ever reason they want to use.
Atleast they are riding.
Some Wing rider, as they age, find their hips give them trouble, the automatic
low speed drop wheels, provide the comfort and the ability to keep riding without the need to switch to a Trike.
so I guess I shouldnt have laughed quite as loudly as I did when I saw one of these with a trailer on the back the other day.....
There's just something about a blue bike......
Throttle on, man, Throttle on..... (does underbar wave)
I guy I know saw three little old men coming into a parking lot with wings and when they slowed down training wheels lowered out of the saddle bags. They had a hydraulic system and if they went below 5mph they came down. They never had to put their feet down. These guys were in their 70's and had sold everything they owned and rode across Canada all summer and when the weather started to turn cold they headed south. What a life.

Stacy MN where they make these is just down the road from me! I'm going to get a set, and a "babe cage".
I'm all for a guy keeping riding. But why not just get a side hack?
