How do you take the possible consumer movement towards these sorts of consumer toys? I see this and the Can-Am trike as a way of putting people who are too afraid of motorcycles on vehicles that are high risk. I mean that if someone doesn't have the courage and coordination to get on a motorcycle he sure doesn't belong on one of these.

Similarly, the proliferation of ATVs has filled the emergency rooms on weekends with idiots who seem to think that riding an ATV is safer than a motorcycle. Au contraire. ATV injuries are usually worse than off-road motorcycle injuries, largely because more people are on them who are incompetent and ATVs are more likely to roll over on people. I know two emergency room nurses and both say that the ATV accidents are the worst epidemic by far for juvenile and adult recreational injuries in the Salt Lake area.

I shudder to think of the same clowns I see on ATVs on the weekend riding these 4 wheeled contraptions around town.
Maybe helmets will solve all the problems? :rolleyes:
