Read the RR - excellent!!

You sure know your way around that area - would be nice if we could meet up there some time and you could lead a ride.

Identify this !... ummmm What is it ??





This was spotted in Huntsville, Alabama last weekend.... it has what looks like 2 bicycle tires on the back...a weird multiple chain/sprocket setup and is one of the strangest looking "things" I have ever seen....

Pretty sad ...I hope this is a one off and not a product that is actually in the stream of commerce.... Enjoy and please comment

I've been riding the area for over 20 years, the last 10 have mostly been on dual sports. I have given some thought to trying to organize a ride for scooters & wee beasties but nothing definite yet. I may try to do something in N. Ga around late April.

Those dual back tires must make for some "interesting" turns. Considering there are also a bunch of trash bags in the back of the truck perhaps it's on it's way to the dump...

It looks to me like you have a lawn-mower based, home-grown rig with some red-neck luggage in the back of the truck. Not a bad thing , i have using Glad-brand luggage myself.

I assume the dual wheel rear is to get more traction and support the rear end better. I am going assume this bike was not built for speed.

I've seen some contraptions like that running around the "infield" at Fontana Speedway, at the Nascar Races I attended (one time only) and that's not all I saw....

I am sure you will see all kinds of things in the in-field during a NASCAR event. I understand even the in-field at the Kentucky Derby gets pretty wild.
