Just seen this on Facebook. Wonder why it never caught on?

Must be fun on bends..... epecially if there is a change of camber, or steering correction needed mid bend!

You may have started something here, do you think this would be the ultimate commuter bike? Certainly would have been useful on the A10/M11 roundabout just south of Cambridge a few years ago. Would hazard a guess the idiots would not be so keen to close pass.
Just remember, when you’re over the hill, you begin to pick up speed. :lol:

Could be lack of grip in the wet, plus the possibility of degradation through wet rot/woodworm?
