Since, "how the hell do you ride that thing" is the most common question I get when riding a tall bike, I thought I'd post this handy video. There's no sound, and it is filmed with a little digital camera, but it shows me mount and dismount the tall bike. Mounting consists of getting a foot on a pedal, and then 'hop hop hopping' up to speed, then standing up and riding off. Dismounting is the opposite!
Its an AVI, about 5 megs, and only about 20 seconds long. I'm not sure how to compress it any further than it is.

Well, maybe I won't make that video..
Let me put it this way, if 'why' is a question you even need to ask, you may be in the wrong place. ;)

http://jonbuder.com/temp/how_to_ride2.wmv - i just compressed it a little more, maybe you can upload that version.
Cool video, cool bike also. I don't know if I'd feel safe riding that thing around, I'm used to being able to touch the ground with my feet if I need to.
