Ummm...ok.... can you say.... staged. There's no way in hell you can stay upright on one of those go-peds at 100mph...which is how fast it would have ot go to keep up wiht the 'bird. Those things are way too unstble...to little rotating mass, and too high of a center of gravity.

even if it's staged, that is the craziest go-ped ever, a pb with that setup would be mad, much less that thing

The very end could be staged, but that initial blast looks for real, and easily keeps up with the TransAm...

a trans am on spray doesn't leave that gently. They leave pretty hard, but they don't go that fast when they never shift out of first

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Well, yeah I don't know if anyone actually bought it, but it doesn't take away from the fact that it's pretty damn cool! And to see the dude on the go ped flip him off and give a little snort of juice too!! That's awesome!!
