Jet ski conversion???

Now that the UK is turning into Atlantis I was thinking of a jet ski conversion to my KLE.

I wonder if Kawasaki would do such an add-on??????


LOL.

Bike conversion for inclement weather

2007 Montana Snow MotorBike & DirtBike Combo! This Is Amazing! Look! Here is a conversion if the next ice age starts. Maybe for crossing antartica. Years ago i tried something similar. It raised the seat so far from the ground you really fall a long ways when you tip over.

I own a 1983 Honda CX650 Turbo and among the stories and gossip I've heard about this uncommon beast (only 150 sold here in Canada during the one year this rather exotic bike was manufactured) is that a number had the engines yanked out of them and installed in racing snowmobiles.
