The motorcycle from Hell
I love this!
The Daily Mail reports that an Australian inventor has come up with the ultimate motorcycle. It's almost ten feet tall, close to thirty feet long and weighs as much as ten family cars!
Its tires come from a Caterpillar mining truck and stand taller than a man. It has a diesel engine and double chain drive to either side of the rear wheel.
Best of all, from the perspective of motorcycle riders who're fed up with car drivers failing to see them and ramming into them - this bike crushes cars!
Here's a video of it in action.
The largest bike I ever owned was a BMW R100RT, which I'd always thought was more than enough for me:
However, I might be persuaded to come out of motorcycling retirement to have a go on this beast! Wonder how it'd handle the Dragon?
(For those who've never heard of - or never run - the Dragon at Deal's Gap, here's a sampler.)
