Notice the life jacket that he did not put on which is required, along with MC #'s for Michigan so now it's dual registartion fees. can you say expensive.....

also notice how he did not jump it in the video when he cam to the hill, It ways twice what a quad does. They are built in Auburn Hills.

I would call it an amphibious jet ski more than a quad.

They are fugly but I think they are cool has hell. I've ridden in two of them and floated in one. Since then I've sorta wanted one. Since they are stupid money, I don't see myself ever owning one.
