I've ridden one of these. Don't recommend it. To anyone. For anything. Ever.

pssst... It was a joke relating to the several threads where people were trying to argue that standing on the pegs (in the dirt) lowered your center of gravity from the seat to the pegs.... No more so than my getting up from my chair lowers my CoG from the chair to the floor.

Wow. It took me a minute to think about that one, but I guess that would be a definite drawback to your entire vehicle being a wheel.

I see:

That spray bottle may be ammonia water for dog protection??

Tassels

Spot rearview mirrors at the top of the windscreen, and what is that between them? A GPS?

Extra comfy seat cushion

Plywood rear rack. With an astounding array of baggage.

Turbo?? I thought that was factory advertising hype the first time I saw it.

This may well be the epitome of silliness, but it is a remarkable achievement. No worse, really, than "our" blings and farkles, but he looks happy...






3 to 1 he doesn't have computer or give a shit what anyone else thinks.

Good on him.

And that looks like a fan in his lap? Certainly a lot going on there....

There's a large platform between the two sides of the handle bars

Hey viverrid... I was being sarcastic and yes, I did follow that thread with amusement...

There is a lot. It's like the Highlights magazine (that some of us) read when we were children-- they always had a drawing with things (like fish and birds) hidden in it. The more you look, the more you find.

Uh, that maybe a laptop-- I think I see a USB port on the left side.

It's his ride, and he doesn't give a darn... good for him.

Sorry if 205, but I found this interesting actually.

Bad knees but didn't want to succumb to trikedom?
