Aha! The U.S. can claim the largest motorcycle. Possibly the ugliest one too. Everybody is super-sizing so this dude did his bike. Greg Dunham built a 25 foot long jumbocycle just because he could.

The fact that a completely new kind of product can be made by simply upsizing an existing one is definitely one worth keeping in mind.
