Riding on air.

Saw this air powered dirt bike from down under. Pretty cool. I could really see this working for light weight bikes and scooters. Just think of places in the world where scooters rule the inner cities, no pollution, no noise, no gas.

Apparently a compressed air small automobile is sold in India, so why not a bike.

The trouble with trouble is that it started out as fun.

Currently Triumph-less. A '15 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V and a '11 Yamaha FZ8.

Sure beats a bunch of bees being held captive in a smelly 2 stroke.

Could be kinda tough to top it off between loops on your favorite trail...

Cool idea though.
