It'd be sweet to put a saddle on that beast and take it for a ride.

Neat but it needs a head. Having both ends the same is yea, kinda creepy.

Funny how these things strike us unconsciously.

Couldn't tell if it struck me as insect-like, or dog-like. I suppose "Big Bug" doesn't sell as well as "Big Dog".

Annoying sound. Needs a Buell or Ducati big twin motor instead of a buzzing little motocross 2-stroke. :hill:

Or electric, but then all it can do is carry its own batteries.

Our tax dollars are funding this? :mad:

A loud, fuel burning piece of machinery that is still not as efficient as the mule it does a sad job of replicating.

Not to mention a greater sense of self preservation :thumb:

Insert "beating a dead horse" here :hill:
