I think that is an extremely perceptive remark. In fact, I have thought exactly the same thing: These things have all of the dangers of a real bike, yet do not demand the same level of commitment and/or training to use. And in fact, they're so easy to wail around on doing slides and burnouts and such, I suspect they're going to be splattering their new riders all over place.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.
I shudder to think of the same clowns I see on ATVs on the weekend riding these 4 wheeled contraptions around town.
You're pretty smart for a Harley rider.
