…3Z Scale’s Bulldog lets your ride on your R/C truck?

Bulldog R/C

On its own, a 1/3 scale remote controlled truck is pretty awesome, but when you add in the fact that when you’re done controlling it with a remote, you can attach a set of handle bars and actually ride the thing around, it becomes a definite must have for any kid, or any adult that’s still a kid at heart.

The Bulldog R/C Rider features a 110cc four-stroke engine, disc brakes, automatic transmission, independent suspension, aluminum wheels and a 2.4 GHz radio transmitter, and is more than four feet long and weighs nearly 200 pounds.

Sadly, the remote control function is disabled as soon as a rider hops on, but I’m sure there’s an easy way to hack that little safety feature for some really good times!

…Vespa makes the GTS 300 scooter for men?

Vespa GTS 300

Apparently Vespa has finally figured out that with a little bit of black paint, some subtle accents, and their most powerful engine to date, they can probably sell the thing to guys just as well as they can sell it to girls.

The Vespa GTS 300 Super features a 22hp, 278cc, four-stroke, single cylinder, liquid-cooled, electronic injected engine that propels the man-mobile to a top speed of around 80 mph (Though I hope to god no one tries to top speed one of these things!) while getting a rather thrifty 70 mpg.

Additional features include 12-inch alloy rims, double-disc brakes, red springs, a new grill, and plenty of cargo room to hold your man pur… man bag.

…Golden Eagles make your bike go faster?

Golden Eagle

As gas prices go up, so does bicycle use as people look to escape the pump. Peddling is so old school though. What if there was something that could give you 250 mpg, top speeds of 30 mph, and fit on any mountain bike or street cruiser? Golden Eagle has the answer with their assist engine. Designed to be “the first and only geared belt drive bicycle assist engine on the market”, the Golden Eagle gives you a choice between pedal power and a motor assist when you need it. Plus, it’s a four-stroke engine, so there’s no need to premix the oil and deal with the smelly exhaust associated with two stroke engines. If you’re going to save the world, why not do it with a little speed and a little style? Read through for Kevin Kelly’s account of his experience with the Golden Eagle.
