Time for downsize

Inside the Bufalino you’ll find a bed, two seatings, a cooking zone, basin, relatively lots of storage, a refrigerator, and more.

Nice coffin, it has all the amenities you'll need in the afterlife.

Re: Time for downsize

Now you know why all the three wheeled ATV's were recalled.

Three wheels - the least stable form of transportation. From some one who owns two motorcycle/sidecar combinations.

Re: Time for downsize

Loved it, especially the part where the front end came up while driving.

Re: Time for downsize

I agree with photographix; put that body on a Commander 1000 or a RZR or some other UTV and it would be pretty cool. Assuming you could tie it all down.

Re: Time for downsize

The seat design is actually very interesting.

I'm however very dubious about putting a bed that close to a two stroke. Perhaps if it were converted to electric.

I had a Yamaha Tri-Moto with a solid rear axle back in my salad days. Yeah, the kind that if you want it to turn right, you threw your body weight to the left to get the weight off the inside tire. Very counter-intuitive. Took hitting a pine tree at low speed to learn that lesson!

Rode it without a helmet, too.

Oh, to be young and invincible again.

Sorry, don't mean to hijack the thread.
