The world could've been a wonderful place right now. In the 1950s, post-war optimism led many to believe we'd be living in solar-powered pods, commuting to work in atomic-powered flying cars while our handy house robots dressed the Christmas tree.

Of course, that's the same optimism that took us to the moon, not to mention laid the groundwork for the entire tech industry. But what would the optimists of the '50s have dreamed up for the motorcycle of the future? Perhaps Randy Grubb has the answer.
