I'd imagine the bike would also need a reverse gear?

To protect your bike in a crash - you are the crumple zone.

I can understand the disabled access, but there's a lot better designs for a three wheeler available. I like the crumple zone comment. I can only guess the builder wanted to feel that he was floating/flying above the road. Maybe a special rig for a film effect?

The pilot probably has a very good reason for building/riding such a contraption, but for the life of me I can't think of what it may be!
I know motorcycles aren't the 'safest' form of transport but that looks really sketchy!
