Water and motorcycles don't really mix, do they? You try to avoid riding in the rain, you take care when washing your bike, and the last thing on your mind is riding your motorcycle into the sea. Unless you are desperate of course. Or if you've got the latest GIBBS Sports Amphibian Open Gibbstech link in a new window vehicle.

Called the Quadski Open Quadski link in a new window, the latest piece of innovative engineering from GIBBS is a combination of a motorcycle, a quad and a jetski. The Quadski is powered by a BMW K1300 engine (the motorcycle part), it has 4 wheels (the quad part) and it rides on water (the jetski part). They decided for BMW engine because of reliability.

The Quadski will give you speeds of around 50 miles per hour (72 kph), both on land and water. Imagine, you can ride your vehicle to the beach, and then ride it directly into the water and continue your fun. Amazing.

When's the last time you were able to jump the waves with your BMW? Or any other motorcycle? But at what price? No prices are published, but I'm sure it'll be much more than what a K1300 will cost. But if you've got money, who cares.. it's fun.

We already mentioned these guys last year when we discovered a patent for exactly this vehicle (minus one wheel, since it was for a trike)(look at the related articles below). So here it is in real life.

Monday, February 28th, 2011 - Patent: The Only Motorcycle Trike I Would Consider Buying

Gibbs Amphibious Trike
This would be the only reason I would consider buying a motorcycle trike; the Gibbs Technology Amphibious Trike.

Imagine riding the twisties, through the forest, and when you reach the river (or sea), go into it, and jetski for a while.
