Wow a 2 wheel beemer scoot with a roll bar. Are those actually seat belts I see hanging down?

Yep!...& the smoked plastic 'roof' of that roll bar ties into a rear window to keep rain off the rider!

Check out the windshield wiper! Oh, the little sign said to "keep off".

I remember reading about those when they first came out some time ago. An interesting idea, kind of cool looking in a funky sort of way...

Those bikes are really cool, Tony. I've seen them all over the place in Europe.

BTW, I just returned from Austria & Germany, also. Fell in love with Austria, really gorgeous place.

I saw a few nice LBCs near Garmisch. Two guys in big Healeys racing on a twisty road, passed us when we were riding in a bus. Also saw a perfect Midget and a couple of BGT in Vienna.

Not a single triumph, not even a Spitfire! Oh well . . .

Oh, that is really slick!

I want one for my commute!

Designed to have No helmet required - they're safe enough without one

Or for a little more protection from the rain:

I strongly covet one of these things. Top Gear reviewed them once... too dern cool for words.
