“The rest is history.
“I’ve been riding trikes since 2007, a trike tour business (Melbourne Trike Hire) for 12 years, graduated from Australian built Chopper 4 OZTRIKES to German-built BoomTrikes, plus a great friendship with Johann Kastner, owner of OZTRIKES in Somersby NSW, an absolute Australian Legend of three-wheeled motorcycling.”
After selling his last BoomTrike in 2017, Johann made Alan an offer too good to refuse last year to buy a 2018 1.6-litre automatic BoomTrike called Kermit for obvious reasons.
“I’m am close to retirement age now, have a small but great circle of friends in ThreeDom Trikers Victoria who meet and ride regularly,” Alan says.
“I’m looking forward to another biennial TrikeFest in Western Australia late in 2021, which will be TrikeFest number four for us.
“I could never have imagine all those years ago that triking is a lifestyle and I don’t believe I will be retiring any time soon; from triking, anyway.
