They are only as dangerous as the driver driving them makes them to be. I rode them growing up and never had any issues that I could not blame myself for. I had a blast on them especially riding the Honda 200x, 350x and 250R's.

I say go for it.. I've flipped mine so many times I don't know how I haven't broken anything. The chain guard wasn't on there once and I cut two of my finger tips though. Here's a pic from a while back

Three wheelers are fun as hell. I have a couple friends that have real clean 350x's. 200x's are fun but dont have any power IMO. 250sx's are also good but dont have a clutch and are shaft driven. The only scary three wheelers are 85-87 250r's thats when they put liquid cooling in them. TRI Z's are also pretty wild. Just some basic info

350x's are the most fun IMO.

Heres a badass three wheeler. 250r frame and everything but with a 450r motor.

I agree with what was said above... they are only as dangerous as the rider makes them out to be. I've had two in the past and had alot of fun on them. I prefer 4 wheelers though b/c I've had more of them and feel more comfortable on them.

Just two weekends ago we went up to the mountains for my cousins bachelor party and he and one of his buddies both ride 3-wheelers. They are damn good too taking on alot of obstacles that were alittle wild even on four wheels.

They both ride Honda's, 200X and a 350X.

I agree, i grew up on a 3 wheeler and they were fine if you know what you are doing. If not, sure they can be dangerous, but shit so are any ORV.
