A Beetle nose screwed to a bike? Good Lord. For those who love riding a bike but aren’t able to. Maybe if I lose my legs in an accident I’ll consider one too. Make that both legs and a hand.

>No one ever said that motorcycles were limited to two wheels.

Lots of people have said this. Me included. Sure you can build a six wheeled dualie based on a Honda Rebel but it would not be commonly considered a motorcycle. If you pointed to a sport ATV and said “look, a motorcycle” even a bunch of 6 year olds would realize your brains have turned to mayonnaise.

Luckily for the English language the definitions of the words are not changed whenever some great idea pops into somebody's head. Wikipedia says "A motorcycle or motorbike is a single-track, two-wheeled motor vehicle powered by an engine." Well put. By adding handlebars you'd turn riding elephants and river barges to motorcycles, according to your definition.
