Beckler spotted a World War 2-era motorcycle WITH A SIDECAR in the city recently. That vehicle has inspired our list of the top 10 funniest modes of transportation.
10. Motorcycle w/ sidecar
There is simply no way to take someone seriously who pulls up in a sidecar.
9. Razor Scooter
Practical, foldable, and storeable. The Razor Scooter checks all the boxes, except it’s mostly for children.
Beckler used to know a guy who rode a unicycle to high school. No matter how good you are, it looks like you’re about to crash.
When the Segway was invented, we all thought it was going to be really cool and futuristic. That lasted for about a week. Then Paul Blart Mall Cop happened. And Gob Bluth. And tourists.
6. A bike with one of those loud electric motors
The idea of being able to flip on an electric motor on your bike when you don’t feel like climbing hills or pedalling into the wind is great. The sound those motors make is NOT great. “NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE”
5. PT Cruiser Convertible
No explanation needed.
Again, no explanation needed.
3. Urban Poling
Also known as “Nordic Walking”, it’s walking with ski poles. Practical in tough terrain, hilarious in the city on concrete. Also telling people you’re into “urban poling” will raise some eyebrows.
2. Tandem bike
A bicycle built for two. One bicycle, two people. Even funnier if it’s two guys.
1. Fan boat
The most redneck vehicle one can drive. It says “I live in 6 inches of water, and my neighbors are alligators.”
