    No helmet, no eye protection, no gloves, short sleeve shirt, shorts, and tennis shoes.

    At least he didn't take the jump, or run over the pup .... I was expecting to see that twelve foot long chain smack him in the back of the head when it parted.

    And roosting his buddy in the face ... how predictable was that! Sure wouldn't want to be on a framing crew with this guy, especially if he had a nail-gun in his hands.

    It's obvious the builder didn't have much understanding of tipover lines, and the rider hadn't yet realized the importance of hanging off.

    I wonder if the rider might actually have appreciated a dual sport sidecar rig.

    It's all a wonder of our society where anyone can build anything without much concern for safety or vehicle inspections.

    Youch, indeed.

    In all fairness.... (?) with those heavy, deep cleated rear tires this looks like it's strictly intended to be doing hill-climb work. Long wheel base, small front wheel, narrow track = good uphill performance (and that's about all...).

    At least, let's hope that this thing isn't intended for the street.....
