While all 10 of the motorcycles in the slideshow that follows are legit eye candy for those of us looking to make the most out of our slack-off time at work, dude, you've got to be high to ride some of them. And I think the creators were most definitely high when they designed and built some others. Like #1. Its maker constructed that V8-powered freak of nature from scratch, crotch rocketed it a few laps around a parking lot...and then crashed, almost killing himself in the process.
And on that note, here we go! For all you adrenaline junkies, bored 9-to-5ers jonesing to make the 5 arrive faster, and kids craving some mind-altering substances in the form of hallucinogenic bikes, here are my picks for the 10 Trippiest Motorcycle Designs.
Note: While some of the following bikes are available for purchase, most are one of a kind and were not made for commercial distribution. If an item was for sale at printing, its entry will include the purchase price. All prices are listed as they were at printing. Prices are subject to change.
PS: The image above is a Hyundai concept bike by Min Seong Kim. His design would be made up of materials that stretch and contract in sync with your body to enable steering without any sort of secondary system or apparatus. During turns the body of the bike would relax to take smooth corners; during acceleration it would contract and become rigid for support.
