The Motorcycle Repurposed

This Friday’s Museum of Possibilities offers several ideas for new types of motorcycles. In this exercise, the concept of the basic motorcycle has been mined for its potential to provide a platform for new uses or added functions. These are not add-ons, conversions or mods, but complete motorcycle designs. Of course, sidecars and small trailers already exist. These concepts are offered merely to widen the discussion!

Dear Mr. KeepUp: I am okay with not riding a motorcycle ever again. Plus, do you REALLY want a rider on the streets with incipient hearing loss, and slowing reflexes?
Regarding your remark about an aibag (sic) inflating suit, how did you know about one of the items to appear in this Friday's blog? Do you work for a Psychic Hotline?

The bike boat, could have an arm that swings into the air for wind turbine, generation or if wind catcher type blade, a safety reflector /light doo-hicky, I believe there is work on some sort of aibag inflating suit, and other safety features

I hope you can get back on a bike 50+ years is way too long.

Walking the line between sublime and ridiculous as ever. Some of these I can imagine seeing parked at some summer event with aging overweight biker couples eating home made sandwiches while watching a steam vehicle rally (in the UK).

Love the boat idea, that one seems most feasible. The sleep cycle however seems likely to induce an extreme claustrophobic response and possibly night terrors.

The Scooter Home as well has potential, if repowered with a larger bike.
