I saw a guy that had one of those decked out goldwings stop at a light and put his foot in a pothole. The bike fell over and stopped traffic for a while. They couldn't get the bike up. there were 3 fellows trying to get it up. Not until a 4th guy came up to the scene could they get the bike standing again (the fourth guy looked like he could have picked the damn thing up himself 'Hulk')
If you want to feel like your in a car but still want the wind in your face, buy a convertable. If you want to race like a bat outa hell and go splat when you crash, get a rice rocket. If you want to have fun, enjoy the ride and get around 100mpg, get a moped.
There is always someone wanting to overdo things. I'm sure you've seen the trucks that have to have step ladders to get into or cars that have less than 2" of clearance. People buy stuff like this and they buy cars with only 2 wheels. I figure, its their money, let em piss it away like they want. Just don't say anything to me when I'm spending $1.25 at the gas pump to fill er up!!
