  2. no.

    i'd be MORE likely to ride one if it was electric... and i'm not saying i'd be likely to ride one.

    electric motors go backwards so with a computer they can stand themselves up...

  3. They would make a good dirt bike I think, if you put a dirt tyre on it. Go up anything.

  4. You wouldn't last 5 minutes riding it in Australia. You would be arrested for doing a wheelie and it would be crushed into a really little cube.

  5. It will meet the same fate as the Segway - the beige beancounters will say it's too big to allow on the footpath and too 'uncontrollable' to allow on the road.

  6. There is no law against riding on one wheel.

    If you actually knew what you were talking about wheelies are banned because of loss of traction. How is it losing traction if the wheel isn't there.

  7. E-braking would be an issue. It will tend to roll you face first into the pavement :)

  8. No counter steering, wouldn't have one in any situation

  15. Same back to you. Next you will be telling motorcyclists that they will be booked for riding because if you drove a car on two wheels like this you would be booked. That would be a chortler as well. :rollseyes:

  17. You're like a 6 yr old aren't you.

  18. If it has electronic suspension capable of push-button fence jumping, I'd be interested. Then you could jump over cars instead of splitting or filtering.

    As it is, at least it makes everywhere a drive-through.
