WooHoo. I got my new toy.

Trikke 2


And I got it to move. I was worried because I read a ton of "I can't get this thing to move at all, what am I doing wrong?" on Trikke forums and blog posts, but part of it is not unlike being on a motorcycle--as long as you're not afraid to lean, you can make it go. To turn on a motorcycle, you have to lean; forward movement on this, you have to lean.

But dang, it is a full body workout...just what I needed, to be sure. I think I have a favorite new toy, after the Spouse Thingy and my scooter.

My Mommy says that is AWESOME, and if her back wasn't so bad, she would want one really badly!

I have a really bad back, but this didn't seem to bother it...

Is it hard on your knees?

I don't have an knee pain today, but having just started out I'm not sure what it will feel like long term. My left knee is pretty screwy, so I should know in short order--probably when I get to where I'm trying to go uphill. On flat surfaces, I don't think bad knees (or backs, etc) are a problem.

I have arthritis in my lower spine, both hips, and my left knee, as well as a couple other chronic pain issues, so if it affects those things, good or bad, I should know within a couple weeks...

I know this is a dumb question, but how in the world do you stop it? :)
