Aimed too high, and not enough range. Point that bad boy about 15 degrees down; and give it a gelatinous fuel.

Based on the goatee, the guy in the tux is satan in human form, waiting to jump on the pegs of his personal transportation bike? (Satan doesnt pedal for $hit)

That pciture reminds me of a story Jay Leno was passing along a show I watched a while back. He has a jet powered bike. Some anoying driver was tailgating himmbadly as they were driving some bad LA traffic. Jay was getting anoyed with the driver as it is just no cool to have a 3000+Lbs vehicle inches behind you wether you are on a bike or a motor cycle, the car will do lots of damage if you get hit. As he was looking over his shoulder at a traffic light to get a good look at the car behind him, he noticed the cars front bumper was starting to melt and drip onto the road. Jet powered bike = VERY hot exhaust... teachest that driver not to tailgate!

With that thought in mind, stick the flame thrower out the back and watch how much more space a driver will give you. As a bonus you won't be "eating" the flames either as your speed increases.

Happy riding,
André

Meh. I'd much rather have an electromagnetic pulse cannon strapped to my bike powered by a dynohub. Now THAT would stop drivers in their tracks. Literally. (Am I on the Watch List yet? )
