Suzuki Hayabusa Trike??????

So me and my bro were sitting at the overlook today when this funky looking car thing pulls up. At first we think it is some sort of dunebuggie that they rent out in Pigeon Forge and other touristy spots, but when we got closer, we found out it had GSXR1300 on it and the hayabusa markings. Apparently this guy loved riding motorcycles and had something happen to him and was paralyzed from the waste down. So he made himself a motorcycle he could drive like a car. There were no foot pedals, I am not sure how he shifted or braked. He had a steering wheel and a full right side throttle grip. If I am not mistaken, he might of put an automatic tranny in it. Here are some pics of it. He did have two D&D pipes on it as well. They weren't loud on it though...

If the guy wasn't paralyzed I'd label him a moron and that it sucks but I'll cut him a break. So its cool and I've heard of it before... heck the wheelchair guy in Biker Boyz had one.

He was with a group of cruisers, so I didn't see him push it hard. I would say the back end would be all over the place.

Never saw biker boyz, that movie just looked sh*tty, so I passed.

The T-rex is a production trike that is alot like that. It even leans in corners. I would buy one in a heartbeat if I found 40k burried in my yard.
