More of this Burningman, please -



Amsterdam is a huge bicycle city, and a huge beer city. We would never want intoxicated driving but no one said anything about a sober driver and intoxicated engines:

I like it! I wonder if the same concept, could be used to make a merry-go-round bar?...non-vehicle...

get everyone as loaded as possible, then see how fast they could get the bar spinning.
anything worth doing..is worth overdoing

Saw one this year, but the gear setting must have been way low because all the passengers were peddling their little hearts out while the rig hardly inched along. Maybe they all wanted the gear that low though, I don't know.
God Please, don't make me make myself look like a moron...

This happens to be one of my favorites. It is an amazing vehicle to behold and solidly built.
