What the trike offers in stability, it lacks in handling. The CVO Tri Glide is really best suited for straight-line touring, which it excels at. On the freeway and straightaways, the luxury trike feels planted and stable. When we hit the twisty roads, however, things got more interesting. Make no mistake, the Tri Glide is not a performance-oriented trike, in the sense that you can use up all your tires' rubber up to the edge of your sidewalls. Those back tires are not shaped for leaning, and the whole trike suffers from serious understeer while taking turns at a spirited pace. In the Tri Glide's defense, you'll be hard pressed to find any trike that doesn't understeer, simply due to the geometry of a traditional trike with one wheel up front and two wheels in back. Still, I was riding the CVO Tri Glide faster than I would imagine 99 percent of trike owners ride their rigs through the twisties, and it was taking a fair amount of arm strength pushing the handlebars to keep the front wheel aiming into each turn. It's got the power to keep up with the rest of the pack, but the trike's weight and layout of the wheels will always make the Tri Glide bring up the rear.
