Beautifull bike. I must say its suprisingly cheap (the price that is, not the looks)

I believe it was designed from the ground up, in LightWave.

I like all things different. :D
Mainly for the attention factor.

Though, this would probably get more attention (aswell as faceplants):

Now that is nothing short of superb!

At least you'd need a crash helmet for that, the other one is definitely more of a hard hat and moustache affair.

Considering that you have the tank between your legs on just about any bike I've seen to far, I'd say that only a few people are really crotch conscious ;)

How would you make a quick stop on this without flipping 20 times?

I think you meant this one.

with one tire, how would you keep from flipping over? without a second tire, wouldn't there be an inertia issue? Especially if you slammed on the brakes.

You would use gyroscope like on the segway
