Lehman Trikes is launching its annual “Good Turn Trike” Program. The Program will allow someone with a love for motorcycles to keep riding despite physical and/or financial circumstances. The dedicated annual program will be initiated on December 1, 2007.
The “Good Turn Trike” idea originated in the mid-1990s when a lady called Lehman about her husband, Bob, and his love of motorcycles. Bobs leg amputation and deteriorating health made it impossible for Bob to do the one thing that he truly loved, ride. Lehman Trikes generously decided to install a conversion kit on Bobs bike including needed special equipment at no charge.
Since that first “Good Turn Trike,” Lehman Trikes has donated a number of conversions to individuals on a case by case basis. Simply stated, Lehman has decided to permanently add the “Good Turn Trike” Program to its list of other firsts. “Good Turn Trike” Program details will be available through Lehman dealers December 1. Lehman dealers and customers will submit names, circumstances and narratives regarding potential, eligible candidates by April 30 each year. Candidates will then go through a selection process by which an anonymous panel will chose the recipient. Currently, it is planned that the “Good Turn Trike” will be officially presented each November.
Dan Patterson, President of Lehman Trikes, USA says, We feel that it is our corporate responsibility to support the riding community, to give back to those who support Lehman, our partners, and our products. Putting riders back on the road and making their lives more enjoyable is important to the Lehman family. Thus, it is both a pleasure, as well as a privilege to make the “Good Turn Trike” Program known to the public. We believe that freedom is riding on three-wheels, and as “The Trike Company” and “Leader of the Three World,” we will provide that freedom to recipients of our Good Turn Trike.”
