Now, that's the perfect HD accessory!

The pirates can "ride" in their living room, while watching SOA on the big screen, wearing nothing but there bandannas and humming Village People songs...

I'm not sure if that's a decent compromise to no test ride at all or not. I'd probably take it over nothing but I'd much rather have a test ride. Amusingly though I'd bet that's just a bike dynamometer without the sensors.

It's just a pair of idler rollers with virtually no rolling resistance... Maximum allowable speed is 65 mph (104.6 km/hr).

I think this is intended as a work around to manufacturers and thus insurance companies not allowing test rides at all. However lame I'll give you.
