    The Tweel on motorcycles?

    How long will it take before they put the Tweel on touring motorcycles? Such a hassle to get a flat on a motorcycle.

    For those who don't know about the Tweel, read this:

    It depends a lot - I think - on the type of bike we are talking about.

    I can't see it working with high-performance sports bikes - and high-performance sport bike tires - which are highly specialized (designed almost entirely for grip and high-speed use - where the Tweel is weakest). Vibration issues at 50 mph? How about 150 mph? ;D

    But for cruisers and dual sports... maybe!
