Question Have you ever seen one of these?

So I'm asleep on the couch and I hear what sounds like a motorcycle in my driveway. Big suprise :tonka:

Then I walk outside and see my godfather on this:






It's actually pretty damn cool

40+ MPG.

I have seen pictures of those in Dirtwheels Magizine back when they were a prototype. That was a couple years ago.

That thing does look like it would be fun to ride though.

I just saw a yellow one of those on Friday. Almost wrecked my car trying to see what the hell it was.

He says it's just like riding a snowmobile, which is good, because he's really good at that
