When two wheels are just too much! ;)

When two wheels are just too much. Kind of reminds me of that one South Park episode where Mr. Garrison makes that "gay" alternative to air travel.

Oh yeah. I definitely want one.

You roll over several times and continue on your way. Amazing that it's street legal.

From the Article:
McLean the man is goofy for these things and has gone 53 mph at Bonneville on a 900-pound, 6-foot-tall, 225-hp V-Eight-powered version he calls the "Rocket Roadster," complete with tailplane for added stability. His goal is 100 mph.

Um. 225 hp version tops out at 53mph? wtF?

This mono-wheel has been around a while, I think john burns had tested it in one of the magazines.
