    A chopper because what could be cooler than waddling like a duck every time you drop under 15MPH

    I don't think how it rides matters one jot.... What matters most of all is how it looks.

    One of the crazes when I lived there years ago was surfing. You could buy a car with surfboards bolted to a roof rack. All these Japanese kids driving round in their surfing gear with their surfboards bolted to the roof of their cars. It was most amusing.

    It would be interesting to see one of those attempt an alpine pass.

    From that video, just turning a corner is a feat in itself.

    As is having to peer round the tank to see where you're going.

    Why would you smoke while riding? I don't look at it from a safety point of view, wouldn't the wind - even at low speed - just make the cigarette burn itself down in a few tens of seconds?

    Still missing the point, it is all about 'the look' and nothing about if it actually works, bike or rider.
