Chapeau derrière.



Day late and several dollars short, apparently. But this is such a blatant "fuck you" to the Gap riders that it bears reposting.

Yup. Using a car tire with 50% more load carrying capacity than the m/c tire it's replacing is an accident waiting to happen.

I remember driving my uncle's Toyota HiLux diesel pick-up without power steering, and wouldn't want to drive the Dragon with that awful no-feal, heavy and multi-turn steering.

It looks like a VW powered trike.

What I want to know is how does the front end make it turn?
It almost horizontal.
It looks like it would just allow the tire to flop from side to side without hardly any turning effect.

Yup. Quoth the Killboy:

"Show host Jessi Combs (seen here with Ron Johnson, owner of Tail of the Dragon) and Patrick McIntyre travel all over the world getting to do tons of cool stuff most people only dream of. You may recognize Jessi from her appearances as a welder/fabricator on Mythbusters, Overhaulin', Xtreme 4x4, and she'll be on the upcoming All Girls Garage."



She was in the Gap for the filming of "'The List: 1001 Car Things to do Before You Die'. It's an Autoblog/AOL web series. Here's a link: http://on.aol.com/show/the-list-517192962"

edit: aaaaaand "yuu" beat me to it! Wahmp wahmp...

It is a Licker.

Why does a dog lick his balls? Because he can.

Why build a contraption like this? Because he can. No other reason.

Of course, it's entirely possible that he just bought the contraption.
