I have a recumbent bicycle and I've often wondered why there are no recumbent motorcycles.

I rode recumbent bicycles for years. I have also considered stripping down a burgman and riding it (comfortmax style). This will give me some ideas to think about. Thanks for posting it.

I believe that the Dan Gurney "Alligator" was a recumbent motorcycle. He tried to sell them for a couple of years but hardly anyone was interested in buying one. Gee. I wonder why? ;)

An electric one from the same guys. This one is more usable. They did not make it so you could do maintenance.

the first time I saw the 650 naked I thought it looks quite a bit like a Big Ruckus . I said to myself MMMMMMMMMM , maybe I'll use a naked one with some Big Ruckus parts for a super Big Ruckus project .

I think it would be a nice cruiser, but I would add that landing gear system that they add to some bikes. Avoids the problem of putting your feet up and down. Always wanted to try a recombemt bike tho.
