The Future of Transportation, Motorbikes

Pop over here and check out a rather limited view of what a motorcycle can look like if you turn their wheels 90 degrees, so the axles are perpendicular to the ground, and replace the tires with propellers.

Commuting to work becomes a lot more interesting. Instead of watching out for Bozos slurping coffee and talking on cell phones at freeway speeds*, you get to learn where the high-tension lines are located, and plan to be at least a couple hundred feet higher.

*Yeah, yeah, freeway speeds vary a lot. between 0 and 85, repeatedly, over some depressingly short stretches.
