A road-going jet ski motorcycle?

Water bike patent could become reality

BRITISH firm Gibbs is pretty much unique in making amphibious cars and not long ago we revealed they'd also designed a water-going trike. Well now they're working on a two-wheeled version.

Patents show that the company has designed a jet-ski style machine with just two wheels. On road it leans like a bike, and on the water both wheels retract upwards to leave a clean hull.

From the diagrams it doesn't look like there will be much cornering clearance, but in a world where millionaires are always struggling to find the next ridiculous thing to buy (and remember, Richard Branson is a big fan of Gibbs' creations) it just might find some customers.
