The concept on this is cool. But, watching these guys out on the road with this death trap is a little disturbing. They are big boys and are free to risk their asses if they want to. I just don't want to see them killing somebody else on the road with it. It obviously handles like a garbage scow and has no where near enough brakes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEdIuoCus3Q

Probably not much different than the 70-80 year old retirees driving the 40' motor homes, no CDL, and never drove anything prior but a car their whole life.

I always tell everyone to never drive near a motorhome, to stay way back!
You would not believe the stories i could tell you.

Even the younger rv guys are scary, guys that have never done a brake job on a car now think they can do brakes on a class 8 chassis.
really?

Well, hell's bell's I guess that leaves me out...
I mean I've done Brakes on a car or two, I do the brakes mostly on heavy equipment and farm tractors an such. but never a moto homie.

Talk about crazy ideas or dangerous vehicles have you seen the Youtube video of the guys who put an HF preditor engine in a small car?
