. . . .Would you want the top fuel dragster bike, or the really fat tire tadpole?

I would definitely go for the fat trike. Yet, at 69 yrs old I still find 2 wheels are best. Maybe when I can't walk anymore, I will consider a third wheel might be a good idea. :twisted:

The fat tire tadpole would be a better source for parts to build what I would actually want, so I'd start with that one. ;)

I have a short attention span.
Would probably lose interest in the rail after the first 440 yards / 30 seconds of riding.
So I'll take the trike.

Turning radius of that dragster worries me slightly :wink:

I'd ride the trike. would be awesome to have. Wouldn't get much use, but would be a lot of fun.

If I had the drag bike, I'd stick a turbo charged Hyabusa engine in it, and then go to jail, posthumously. :mrgreen:

Then, I would be tempted to try it too, and going to the grave postjailously. :twisted:
