If a motorcycle genie appeared and granted you one wish in the form of any Harley-Davidson bike you wanted, what would you choose?
Would you go for a sturdy Softail for long rides in the country?
Perhaps you would opt for a fast and sporty V-Rod.
On the other hand, maybe your dream machine is an HD limo.
To clarify, we are not talking about a stretch Cadillac decked out in black with orange pinstripes. Nope. Not even close.
Harley Limo Hybrid
The Harley-Davidson limo—which actually exists—is part motorcycle, part limousine and 100 percent eye-catching.
This hybrid combines a 2012 Harley in the front and an eight-person carriage in the back, which is more than merely a shell with seats.
The pearl white limo features everything you would expect in a luxury ride: a bar, a flat screen television, a sound system, air conditioning, tinted electric windows, vertically opening doors and a rumble seat of sorts in the back, which allows a pair of passengers to perch in the open air while cruising.
Nearly 20 feet long, the bike/carriage crossbreed boasts 1.75 tons of steel, which is powered by a 5.7 liter, 350 HP V8 Chevy engine.
Unfortunately, you cannot simply stroll into your local Harley-Davidson dealership and purchase your own limo bike.
This custom-made machine belongs to a company called Wildfire Tours in Queensland, Australia.
However, if you have longed to view the Gold Coast, this might be the most unique and memorable way to do so.
Kansas City Limo
Closer to home, a gentleman named Smokey McGill of Kansas City, Kansas built another Harley-Davidson motorcycle “limo” that is distinctive in its own right.
In 2004, the 19-foot-long, 10-passenger Harley-Davidson with a DFT trike kit weighing 1,420 pounds set a record as the world’s longest motorcycle.
However, the Anaconda, as it is known, is neither for rent nor for sale. McGill has used the bike to help raise money for charity and has shown it at numerous events.
Take The Whole Family For A Ride With This Genius Bike-Stroller Hybrid
If you’re sick of pushing your kids around in a stroller and want something more mobile, you’re in luck — especially if you’re a fan of riding bikes.
The Taga Family Bike is the solution to all your child transporting problems.
This bike is designed so your kids can sit in the front, with the option of having two kids facing forward, backwards, or towards each other, or you can make space to fit just your cargo or a pet if a kid isn’t along for the ride, according to the Taga Kickstarter page.
There’s even a canopy to shield your children from some strong sun or rain.
The brand was one of the first to make bicycle strollers mainstream in 2009, and now they’re launching the affordable Taga Family Bike to kick their products up a notch.
“Many family bikes today were originally designed to carry cargo, not children,” according to the company’s Kickstarter. “They are usually unstable, expensive and are lacking important features desired by parents and kids.”
The Taga Family Bike will retail at $649, which is on the higher end of the bike trailer price spectrum, but there’s certainly a lot of bang for your buck here.
The bike is available for preorder on the Taga Kickstarter page and is estimated to be ready by October of this year. Watch their video to learn more:
