With the recent wind in Sydney, said commuter would be lying on the path on his side... :D

Side winds :shock:

Mike, that black thing wouldn't get any attention at the lights - it's so low most people would think it was a speed hump (and probably ride over it the same way too :roll: )

Um, yeah, but even if there were no winds, he'd be on his side if he stops - there is no place to put your foot down on this type of bike. This is the ultimate specialist bike, designed to do only one thing - go FAST! It's a rider in a bike like this who holds the human powered land speed record of 81.3 mph.

It doesn't stop at the lights .... :wink:

Weather has been bad in Sydney, especially Friday. An enclosed bike would have been blown over.

Perhaps, but at least you don't suffer from road rash if you do... see here :)

See, recumbents are dangerous. You'll have to give the Flying Unamed Yellow Thing (FUYT ... pronounced Foyt) to me :D
