GETTING UP – GETTING OLD is GETTING OLD

73 is the current number for me. One thing I have noticed is that the older I get the harder it seems to be getting to get up out of my trike seat. I mean, where is a proverbial “sky hook” when needed? That would make it so much easier, don’t ya know?  I think I would benefit from assist bars but I don’t know where I could mount them as I already have other bars mounted that I have my computers mounted on. I may have to look into the matter as the situation is getting worse. I have written about assist bars previously.

Another answer may be a different trike with a higher seat but that is out for me as I can’t afford it nor do I want a higher seat. I like the handling a lower seat offers and would not want to give it up. Maybe I will just have to be the person who actually invents a sky hook. I am quite certain that there is a definite market for them in this world. Hey, maybe I could go out a multi-millionaire.

I don’t think they make a small drone powerful enough to lift me. Heck, even a big drone would be challenged.

Losing weight … lots of weight … would help immensely. I may not even need anything to help me then. Unfortunately that is not likely to happen. Life isn’t fair. I have found that it is a whole lot easier to put weight on than it is to take it off. Nope, life isn’t fair!

One thing is for sure … I need to do something if I want to continue riding as this problem keeps getting worse. A sky hook is needed as I do want to …

KEEP ON TRIKIN’

I reckon I can safely say that Getting Up While Getting Old is Getting Old.

BTW, I just ordered some assist bars from Power On Cycling. Hopefully they will help me. I am sure I will have to make some changes in order to mount them and use them.

UTAH TRIKE CUSTOM EZ ENTRY AIDS

Need help? I am talking about help sitting down onto and getting up from your trike’s seat. There are various aids available nowadays. One of them is these custom made EZ Entry Aids made and sold by Utah Trikes. They sell for $140 according to Utah Trikes website . Although they are made for Catrikes they do work on some other brands. I like the looks and design of these. They adjust up and down, lean in or out, swivel 360 degrees and can be clamped forward or rearward on the horizontal portion of the steering  bars off of the headsets. So that they can be positioned pretty much anywhere the rider thinks works best for them. You can’t “beat that with a stick”.
