switching from a trike to an upright?

    Watching the TdF this morning pulled some feelings I've had
    recently that maybe I don't get something. I've had 2 two-wheel
    recumbents and now have a trike. I like the recumbents, but
    it sometimes feels like a production to get on the bike and
    ride. Would it be easier if I went back to an upright?

    I enjoy the trike, but it seems 'wide'... like I have to be
    aware of every stick or post. And the rumble strips just
    flat annoy me.

    I'm concerned about the uprights seats, the bending over,
    having a sore back, shoulders, wrists, hands, etc.

    I appreciate everyone's comments on this thought.
