IN these days of soaring fuel prices it could be the perfect answer for a Hell's Angels chapter keen to keep costs down. Colin Furze's 72ft motorbike can seat 25 – and what's more he's proved it can be driven at speeds of 35mph.
Admittedly only Mr Furze was on the bike at the time of the test drive, but with a few suspension modifications it's possible he could load up with passengers, as pictured here.
The Lincolnshire plumber, at the head of the bike, used one-and-a-half 125cc mopeds and an extended aluminium frame to create the machine. He is hoping it will be recognised as the world's longest motorbike by the Guinness Book of Records.

He managed to get the bike, which is worth around £3,000, up to 35mph, but found it almost impossible to steer.
'When I first got on it I thought it would never work and at a slow speed it's almost impossible to keep upright.
'But once you get going it becomes a bit easier, although it is a real strain on your arms as it has such heavy steering.

I'll check them out. Life with the Internet is a lot more interesting. What a fun time to be alive. :) Here we are 8,311 miles apart (as the crow flies) laughing about a motorcycle.
