HA! I should be, just call me "Levi" as that's the name of the real owner. Who better to tout the prowess of this bike than my fat big ass? It only goes farther and faster on less sizeable individuals, so it would only be a bonus.

Tried to see if company was public, did not find anything. Company is impressive, already made several product enhancements mid-shipping cycle. Improved frame latch, locked down 2 of the settings to prevent people from getting injured by modifying the wrong thing, and insurance reasons, etc etc. Most issues were already ironed out, but as they get out there to the masses, it uncovers a few more flaws, none that are not easily fixable though.

eh, you do that, quality goes down the pooper and price goes up, obviously. That is the last thing this take off company needs. They've already unloaded about 6000 of these bikes based on the order numbers people have.

6000 x $900 = $5,400,000

Let's say they make just $50 off of one bike, that's still = $300,000 in just a few months.

DAMN.

OK. Iíll give him $125,000 for 40% of the business and I get $20 per bike sold until I get back $250,000 and then my royalty goes down to $5 per bike in perpetuity. Deal?

You shark Ed, can see right through that

Just a note from something I've noticed -

EVERYBODY stares at you, EVERYBODY. I'd say even more so than if I was rolling in an Arancio Argos Aventador.

Maybe go to the corner store and get some candy, or scrounge up some quarters and go to the arcade.

HA!

I was thinking of going to the packy and bungee'ing a 12 pack to the rear rack.

Pretty soon the police WILL notice me and stay locked in whenever I ride this...

"Dispatch to car 54, can you head over to the liquor store on Main Street, that giant weirdo on the Tesla nerd bike is riding around drunk again"

No idea why but this is all hilarious to me, I want one of those bikes

I have zero real use for one other than it would be a cool toy to have, it would get used the week I got it and then would probably disappear into the garage or shed.

I wonder when someone will convert the powertrain over to their race bike and dominate everyone.
