I can't believe this isn't more popular with the V crowd!

If it helps a partially disabled person stay (or get) on the road, great! Otherwise it goes way too far. Buy a car.

I wonder how fast it deploys! I personally would take a 3 wheel over that if I were disabled. Good for that guy all the same!

Like the ingenuity. Agreed - if it gets someone on the road who couldn't otherwise, outstanding!

I'm seeing more and more HDs with two extra wheels mounted on either side of the rear wheel. At first glance they look like a regular trike, but then you see the "middle" wheel. Apparently the setup eats rear tires like crazy because they drag through every turn.

Go hakafugu yourself.

If its the landing gear im thinking of, theres a button to deploy it, and it automatically retracts at about 15 mph.

Actually, I think it is a great alternative to a trike for those who need the stability while stopped.

what he said...

if you notice he's also got about a dozen wind screens on the front of that thing...

to each their own, but IMHO that's a little too far
