And I thought the Piaggio MP-3 500 was unfortunate looking! It was a hoot to ride though and could lean like there was no tomorrow. It's going to be an enormous "to each his (or her) own" -and more power to him or her I say.

Legal loophole in Europe. You can ride these abominations with a regular drivers license, that way you can skip the lengthy and expensive process of getting a motorcycle license.

Contrary to popular belief, you can lowside in these things just like you would on a regular MC:





That being said, I don't like the "feel" of the front end on these things; to me the handlebar feels completely disconnected from the wheels. Might be fine for running around town, but it was downright terrifying when pushing it.

those crashes didn't look like they would have happened on a regular motorcycle. they looked like some sort of linkage failure that forced it to lean when they were trying to go straight.
