Segway Announces Price Breaks

Ok, some of you will say "But it isn't a motorcycle" and you will sort of have a point. However, it is "motor" powered and handlebar controlled (kinda... just don't try to counter-steer one) and it does only have two wheels.

I say.... What the hell, lets get 25 of them and start a MO racing series! The rules will be the following: No holds barred, drinking encouraged, clothing optional. Classes will include "Stock" and "Unlimited" I'll personally get two and run one in each class. Fair warning though, my "Unlimited" Segway will have a blown Donovan 540ci big block running on Nitro, coupled with a Futaba R/C piezo gyro and a change of shorts. -Sean
