Motorcycles are fun, and so are jet skis, but do you really need one of each?
Gibbs Technologies doesn’t think so. It’s figured out how to combine them into a two-wheel amphibious vehicle it calls the Biski, which features a boat-like hull that lets you ride it on land or sea.


It uses a 2-cylinder motorcycle engine that’s connected to a water jet, and wheels retract and tuck into the hull when you ride it into the drink. Gibbs VP of Marketing Tom Berchulc says the 55 horsepower vehicle can hit 80 mph on land and 37 mph on water

Sure is but imagine living near a lake or ocean and just being able to scoot on down and into the water...

I betcha it will be in a Bond or other action movie soon. :)
