Street legal is questionable at best. Looks like a lot of fun though.

I hope I don't see one near me!:wrong: I would want to try it, and that is probably not a good thing!

It's nothing but a gyrocopter with a suspension on it. Real death traps, makes motorcycling look completely safe in comparison (at least you don't have too far to fall when you crash!!!)...Been quite a few people loose it big time in one of those contraptions...

Gyrocopters have one itty bitty problem, it's called proposing. Should you find yourself in that situation and can't get out of it your a dead man.

Turn that loose on this crowd here, and they will stick shiny bits of plastic all over it and then fly off without ever reading the manual.

Oh, and when they crash it will be because the thing is a "poorly-designed piece of junk."

I shudder at the possibilities...

Of course, no one has EVER been hurt riding a bike.

Looks like a greatly overworked copy of the Benson Gyrocopter, which was around in the 1950s.

OOPS! Should of read porpoising. The nose of the aircraft will start bobbing up and down like a porpoise swimming. If you can't figure out how to stop this affect it will break the main rotors and then you've just had your last bad day.

That's EXACTLY what it is. A ex-buddy of mine bought a franchise for West Texas in 1979 from them and they sent two factory reps. to train and get him started. Not only did my bud end up crashing his (luckily it was when he was attempting to land and a mesquite tree jumped in his way and he only received minor injuries), but we heard later that one of the factory reps. was seriously injured in a demonstration somewhere else in the US.. So, if you have a death wish, go ahead..."MAKE YOUR DAY"

Same thing could be said about Motorcycles.
