Motorcycle Pilot

Motorcycle Pilot: One who combines their hobbies of airplanes and motorcycles to achieve greater mobility and enjoy unique adventures. This video features a patent-pending cargo pod allowing private pilots to carry a street-legal motorcycle beneath their airplane. After landing, it takes only a few minutes to remove the motorcycle, unfold the handle bars and ride away. Is it a fun and convenient ground transportation solution? You decide. Motorcycle Pilot.

    How bout you leave it empty and call it Life Boat Pilot?
    Is a bike supposed to lay sideways?
    I’m guessing you have to drain the gas and oil?

    Yeah, I’ve seen this before. Seems impractical. Most people, especially those who pilot around, would rather rent a bike or ship a bike. In fact, my boss and cousin are pilots—when I first saw this idea, I asked them about it. Neither seemed interested in the additional hassle. Both said, “just rent your ride at the local Harley shop.”

    I need to see this in person. Seems to me if someone has the finacial means to get one of these they would have their “people” deal with shipping the bikes to wherever there going.

    I don’t mind the impractical aspect of this setup, a lot of “custom concepts” may be impractical… but that has nothing to do with it. I wouldn’t do it, and I don’t think you can sell it, but I appreciate the concept and the time someone put into it.
    It’s like the Batmobile, I don’t want one, but it’s kinda cool.

    Oh Great! Now we not only do we have to put up with people trailering the bike to rallies, now this! Is it too late, or can I trademark, “Nice Airplane…. P^%$%Y!”

    On the positive side, his gal had a nice rack………

    Looks like this aircraft has had its certificate term’d by the FAA

    I hoped the plane isn’t made in China like those cheap motorcycles are.

    I believe a Trail 70 would be quicker! You know, when running guns, time is of the essence! peace
