Interesting SMR

Apparently this is a paraplegic chick from Australia who was touring the US with this contraption. I've seen a front end like this before on a Z1000 at Pikes Peak but don't know who makes it. Pretty bad ass.

fair play to her. Good to see a handicap not stopping someone getting out there and having a blast still.

Looks like the work of this company. http://www.brudelitech.com/index.htm They must have stepped up their game to include 990 twin powa. Sure takes care of the problem of a wooden front end feel. :D

What's that coming over the hill is it a Superduke? Is it a Superduke?

Honest can't follow that.. At least side cars have historical significance.
A few of these can-hams round town. They are stuck in traffic like a car but have to wear the helmet and lack the space to do the shopping and carry the beer?
Got me puzzled... :? :?

When I heard that the Bombardier factory had something in the works for the road under the once well known dirt bike name Can-Am, using a Rotax twin I got excited. Great, dirt heritage street bike with big Rotax twin! Built 30 miles from me!

Then they came out with a skidoo with wheels :x

Finally, a 3 wheeler which I would not be embarrassed to ride. The "beak" looks good on that setup. I know a couple of paras who ride, nothing close to the coolness of this. Here is a little more about her. http://www.apparelyzed.com/forums/topic ... a-in-2013/ I reached out to her, I will let you guys know how the SMR is doing with touring.
