Tandem times four?

I think this may be the trike equivalent of a school bus...

I wouldn't be surprised if a school bus handled corners better than that trike. ;-)

I don't know for sure, but I'll bet Bruce Brown hasn't driven a school bus. Their handling is awful! That trike may have better brakes too.

Let's just say if I was riding down the road loaded with 7 or 8 riders sitting behind me, I would feel uncomfortable making a right hand turn on that long monster. I have trouble enough with a two seater tandem....

somewhere in Auckland here they have a "Big Bike" that takes something like 28 riders! although it has 4 car wheels on it, it is completely pedal powered, has a steering wheel, and even some speakers connected to a walkman for a radio. I also know that they have had it going over 80km/hr before.
