I guess you really have to trust that landing gear. It ain't like you can just put your foot down when you stop.

I'd like to see this thing negotiate one of our 10 mph 80-85 degree off camber uphill turns. When it can do that without a 3 point turn or scraping sides then it has arrived. So far it looks great for high speed sweepers.

Notice the picture where both wheels are straddling the double yellow. Not a good way to advertise a product.

I've checked out the website and it only leaves me with one question: why?

I mean $80K seems like a whole lotta moolah for what is essentially a cagers' wet dream of what a motorcycle should be By the way, for that kind of money I'd think they could put some seats in there that don't look like grandma's circa-1960's naugahyde kitchen set

Cheers,

Exactly my thought. Did Killboy take that photo?

Other thoughts:
1. It's really a GT, after 3 serious farkling sessions.
2. The nose of the vehicle looks like a smiling cartoon face. In fact, it looks just like this emoticon: The front tire makes the vehicle look like it's sticking its tongue out.

For that kind of money I would rather get an "M" series...

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...

I think I might like the MonoTracer, butt definitely don't like the Ecomobile. Course, with the pricing they have, and the lady of the house requiring a/c, plus she can't ride in the back seat of anythang, I doubt I'd be looking at either one seriously.

Until you had to stop, and the wheels deployed and came to rest on the rears doors of the cars you are sat between. Could be fun, more like riding a roller coaster on the flat..... Thats it, partially deploy the wheels and run the gauntlet of slow moving traffic.
