I like it.

BUt I would have liked it more if I could hook my stealth camper tent onto it.  :thumleft:

That is very cool, in that "I really need that cause its cool" kind of way.

The only problem most future vehicles have all in common that utilize motorcycle wheels, is that motorcycle wheels are worn out a hellava lot sooner with the sides being fine, and very expensive. That is the saddest part of bike tyres, they wear out in the middle with the cornering sides of the tyre sitting there, all gripped up laughing at you.

Very nice
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

It will take a 'baby elephant' to knock over this bike

So basically a mini or any other vehicle....

I think it is flippen cool but calling it a motorcycle is a stretch.... A car with two wheels maybe.

But undeniably very cool tech!

So if you drive forward into a parking space, does it have a reverse gear to get you out again? 'cause you sure can't just push it backwards... ???
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

Why would not be able to push it back? the gyros only prevent it from falling over not preventing it to go backwards.
Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.
