Looks like the boys at Hannigan have been doing some gene splicing between touring machines and street quads. Now tell, me, what exactly would you license this thing as??

That's pretty cool. Wonder what they'll sell for? I think a set up like that based on a sportier bike like the K12S or FJR would kick ass...

I looked all over their website and couldn't find anything on it. It appears they'll be at CCR, though, maybe they'll have it out their for test rides!

Actually, G&G Technik have developed a quad based on the Boxer motor. Click The biggest problem is that anything with more than three wheels is classed as a car in the US, so they're not road legal here. And they're extremely expensive (three or more times the cost of the donor bike). Nice idea, but unfortunately not likely to be seen on the roads any time soon.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Well, the dimensions don't appear to be much different than the all electric vehicles that Chrysler makes, that are road legal. I liked (that's "like," only better) the way it looks.

If you got rid of that stupid throne for the 2nd seat, put a big basket back there, added some mud dawg tires, I might pull a few logs out with it.
