Take a look at the bidders names on these two auctions. What do you make of this? I've seen a couple more auctions with those kinds of names too.

Ebay's way of confusing everyone. It used to be that when the bid got over 200 dollars they changed user id to numbers. As in bidder one,bidder two etc. Now they give them stars to make it harder to figure out which bidder you are.. Idiots!:P

From the notice at the top of the bid history page:

"eBay has changed how bid history information is displayed for higher-priced items. To help keep the eBay community safe, enhance bidder privacy, and protect our members from fraudulent emails, only you and the seller of the item can view your User ID in bid history. Other member will see anonymous names."

Oh brother! Like a username isn't enough, they have to disguise your username too! Why don't they just NOT LIST A NAME and you can only see it if you are the high bidder? Duh.

I was kinda wondering about that. Is there anywhere that it would be legal to ride on that trailer? In the abscence of something to hold onto (handlebars), I'd sure want a seat belt.... and some substantial highway pegs? I probably stillwouldnot ride that thing.

But it is kinda neat looking.... in a kinda way.

The sign on the mirror said, "Employees MUST Wash Hands Before Leaving Restroom". I waited and waited, but no one came in, so I washed them my damn self. Guess I\'m just a rebel like that.

You would not catch me ridding on that thing. No way. Just does not look safe to me.

From what I was recently told, this rig would be legal in Ireland, which has absolutely no regulations pertaining to trailers being towed by a motorcycle. Otherwise, I suspect this set-up can only be used to tour from the Kansas-Colorado border to the Kansas-Missouri border, and back again, endlessly. Every state I know of prohibits riding inside of a towed trailer (except in a parade, at 5 mph). I imagine that would apply to riding on top of one, as well.

I don't know about the seatbelt - sounds like Joan Claybrook legislation (anyone remember her?). I'd rather not be strapped to that thing, after it has flipped over, which it surely will!
