BMW twin rotor hoverbike

10,000 feet, 173 mph. Sure, why not? ...but you'll need a pilot's license.

You don't need a parachute, as I hear these things never break down.

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...

Re: BMW twin rotor hoverbike

This picture certainly does stir the imagination. The "God Beam" does not look photo shopped!

A rocket powered ballistic parachute would be simple to mount - they've been in service for years. I found it interesting that he decided to use Tasmanian oak for the propellers instead of composite. Probably due to $$ - they're no doubt off the shelf.

Re: BMW twin rotor hoverbike

It's interesting to see the "pilot" wearing helmet, jacket, gloves, and.....tennis shoes?

If I order one, I'm gonna have Curtis check the final drive first

Looks to me like it needs a better seat.
