Future Tech: Speeder Bikes

So question for all our readers out there: Who saw Star Wars and always wanted to play on a Speeder bike?

For those of you unaware what a speeder bike is…



[box type=”shadow”] Speeder bikes, also known as hover bikes, were open-air repulsorlift vehicles, usually carrying one or two passengers. Speeder bikes emphasized speed and maneuverability over conventional speeders and were popular with thrill-seeking teenagers and military scouts. A typical speeder bike had a maximum altitude of 10 meters (32 feet) and could thus maneuver deftly over very rough terrain. Some companies manufactured extras like sidecars for speeder bikes.
