I had to try it. Putting along, side by side, taking in the scenery and chatting it up sounded like fun. So we put on our best strolling on the boardwalk duds and hustled over to the rental shop to try out a side by side quad.


It was fun. No worries about tipping over, you can yak it up with your friends, you can even sip a cold beverage while you motor along. You cannot go fast! It must weight 400 pounds and I question how hard my quadmates were working but speed is not the point!

Imagine one of these framed up with titanium, bigger wheels, some suspension and adjustable seat heights! Give it some gears and clip-in pedals, put four bikers in it and you could fly. Crashes would be spectacular!
