Candidly, that doesn't look like something that would sell all that well in Nebraska.

What's funny to me is the idea of someone from Ky making fun of Alabama.............


but you are right, there are some here in Alabama that might buy it, but I would say the manufacture would have much higher sales numbers in Mississippi..................

As us Alabamians always say.... "Thank God for Mississippi"

It rained six inches in one hour in Louisville, KY. I saw the footage on the Weather Channel and it was awful--and I live here. If I had one of those Amphibikes I'd give it a try in the AM.

Do they offer it as a Recumbent also?

Just think, add a couple of cup holders for the Labatts and a Surrey for the occasional sunny days, lean back and just pedal on down the canal for a spell.
