Great gas mileage!


#1

found this little scooter with a pod with doors like car cool.anyone else seen these?


#2

They have been for sale in Europe for a while. The first time I saw one was in marketing material from National Cycle, who makes windshields for motorcycles. I think they are called “enclosed scooters.”


#3

Was it a trike? If so, I saw one going down the road just a few days ago.


#4

They have them with two wheels, three wheels, and four wheels. Here are a few pictures.


#5

I dare anyone here to drive one on an American interstate.


#6

I drove an Isetta on the highway.

I don’t know how to post a picture, being technically challanged as I am, so I posted a link to a picture instead.

And I’ll bet your rear end still puckers when you think about it!!

I dare anyone here to drive one on an American interstate.

I don’t see how it would be any different than riding a regular scooter like the Honda Silverwing or a motorcycle on an interstate. I ride a motorcycle on the interstate as often as five days a week. Riding the BMW in the third picture wouldn’t be that different.

It just takes some fortitude. Some have it, and some don’t. It is nothing to be ashamed of.


#9

That red one looks like it’d be (ahem) interesting in a strong crosswind…


#10

I know. But it would be quite “interesting” to have a car that could fit in the back of most minivans and SUVs.

What do you consider great gas mileage?
