I've always had a soft spot for the old Harley Hummer but now Yamaha has a prototype that would fill that very well.

Now that catches my interest, and considering my new environment here, is just the thing for me to piddle around on.

It wouldn't fly in any country where men are insecure about their manhood though.

In other words, it'd be popular anywhere but the States...

I like it. Light weight, manuverable, still shift my own gears, great style.

I long ago gave up any pretenses of satisfying other's expectations. I wear what is comfortable, I ride what I like, and to hell with whatever anyone else thinks.

If I followed what other people thought, I wouldn't have my precious goldwing at the young age of 25.

Very interesting, would be a great bike to haul around on the back of an RV for some people. Also would make a pretty good around town bike that is capable of short trips down the interstate.

It would make a nice scoot for city traffic, squeezing through gaps would be a breeze. 188mpg is nice too.
But I have to wonder if that one will ever see the light of day, or vanish into the area 51 of all the other good ideas.

I'll bet a CBR600RR engine would fit in it . . . . . . :smiler:

As it's 125cc, and I don't see pedals, I would think most states would require full registration and all the necessary other regulations be met.

Yep, anything over 50cc's in WA requires tags and a MC endorsement on your license.

Pretty cool looking little bike I think!
