Talk about your basic bad ideas...

Nothing says "fun" like a bar stool with two drink holders attached to a chassis with a 6HP motor. But then, there are DUI laws in Minnesota.

Were you on a public road behind one of these?

I first saw these a few years ago used as paddock transportation for race teams. Ususally the same teams that have blenders (for making margaritas) powered by a chainsaw motor.

It seems to be a product of people who are mechanically inclined & have extra time on their hands. And extra beer too.

Whoops...

Clarification time! It was in the back of a pickup... evidently someone making/selling these things because the truck was plastered in "Rocket Barstool.com" decals etc.

And yes, probably not the brightest idea anyone's ever had. But amusing at the time.

Oh thank gods. I envisioned some sod who'd had too many to drink taking off on a public road on one of these at 5 in the afternoon...
