Oh, wait. I've got a 1200R outside.

Nevermind.

No need for a ride report. It's got one of dem fancy water-cooled brick enjines in it... We don't need no stinkin' radiators!

:looks at former bike list: Oh, wait... Never mind.

Yes, I, too, would love to hear how it rode!

Saw one last year in Dallas. Problem is they are difficult to impossible to license for street operation, and they are too low for real off-road operation.

So, basically, it's a great answer looking for a question. Sweet, but dumb.

From Laguna last July. You can see it's a twin spark boxer motor. Wheels are OZ Racing. Not sure about anything else. I guess the web site would have more info.

That quad looks like is corners on rails. I bet with some engine mods that quad could rip some sports cars.

Or Kwirky. Maybe if it leaned it would be fun, but it looks to just be an ATV with tight suspension.

Two words - Unsprung Weight. We're probably talking a minimum of 30 lbs. per corner!

How does it react when you hit a bump? Or accelerate as you spool up those gyros? Sweet craftsmanship though.

...a friend of mine has a modified K1200S with a Swiss made and mounted sidecar... tires are flat, more like car tires.

When he opens up in the twisties, I'd challenge ANYONE to keep up with him... he drifts with that thing... sitting in that sidecar was one of the most horrific experiences in my life...

Based on that experience, I'd say not to worry about cornering speed and/or fun factor... sure, the quad is a little different, but the underlying principles are similar... if not better than aa three wheeled setup!?
