I was looking on that boring site where it shows all the new state law conversations they are about to have and the definition of a motorcycle was right next to lane splitting. Maybe this is what that is all about

Yep, he had it up at Houston Motorsports a few weeks ago. Happened to catch a glance when I was grabbing some race fuel. What an incredibly ugly machine.

I guess they don't expect to sell many
If they can register a trike and a Spider, don't know why they can't register that

A dealer told me you have to have a motorcycle license. I heard it it legal with no issues to drive it on the street. I don't understand how this is different than a t-rex either.
