what size of engine is that? does it have training wheel things? i dont understand how that would work balance wise left and right.. and front to back. wouldnt it just wanna catwalk? then when it did that fall to one side?

most of that stuff is all set up by gyro work. you have a gyro in the rear wheel that spins so fast that it keeps the balance of the bike up. you ever had on of those walmart rc dirbike? thats how those work. now this thing im not too sure, but it should be about the same thing.

no, ive never seen anything like that... i just for some reason cant picture it working properly. the front must be heavy otherwise it would catwalk wouldnt it? my dirtbike catwalks easily and this is about the same cc/lbs ratio...

.the electric version doesn't have a gyro........centrifugal force from the rotating tires/rims wil keep it up.............

thought this looked cool also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIWzUApxYXA
