There are also clips on youtube under ecomobile.
No more trouble getting into your leathers...

Have a nice day!

Re: Bike or car?

This "vehicle" has shown up in threads for years. It's interesting...

Re: Bike or car?

I'm wondering what's the point?
It looks somewhat neat, but it also looks dated.
The fuel mileage isn't good enough to do away with the car, and it takes all the fun out of what makes riding a motorcycle fun.
It takes up less room than most cars, but I don't see that being revolutionary enough to reduce our traffic congestion anytime soon.

Hopefully, the guy's having some success with them.
