So here's the kinda stuff I find when I'm bored Razz emoticon

First, a motorcycle TOW vehicle...just bury me now, I've seen it all:

Next, I think I've found the helmet design that goes perfectly with the mp3 finally. No more looking like we're just trying to copy superbikes...this screams Mp3!:

And lastly, here's a bike to consider for the upcoming Halloween season:

those gold wing tow bikes are pretty awesome, eh? the video appears to be somewhere in the arab emirates but they are a japanese product. the extra wheel between the bike and the car to eliminate tongue weight issues is ingenious.

The skeleton bike is cool looking, I would never want to ride it though out of fear of someone calling me a skelefucker... Razz emoticon

Wow, the tow vehicle is really cool.

I still don't think it is very safe, but cool nonetheless.

Love that helmet. Star wars stuff... Bet it sucks at speed though, literally, probably stretching your earlobes out the back of the helmet and compressing the eyeballs at the same time... But it looks too damn cool!

In Asheville, NC they sell tee shirts that say, "If you are too weird for Asheville you are too weird." Lutherhoss, that stuff qualifies.

I read somewhere the skeleton bike belongs to an orthopedic surgeon.

Looks like Slim Fast guy is hunkered over an old drivein movie speaker.
Just my thing...I like the artistic quality. But you can keep it, not my thing.

I sketched up plans at one point for a rig that would allow a BV500 or similar scoot to tow a small bike like an ET/LX. As long as it was tied down right, it would ride similarly to having a medium sized passenger on the back. The difference from the Japanese design was that mine allowed the towed scoot to lean along with the towing bike.

Well that definitely qualifies as weird. It would have to ridden like a bike but it looks very ungainly to handle with pretty high CG... making active devices to control all the potentially opposing forces (you lean one way and steer another?) must be a full time occupation. Still, as the narrator says, they are gaining lessons learned for future application.

I do kind of like the 'fighter' styling, even if the M2HB is missing...

I thought it was the R2-D2 that was missing.
