OT: New Wind-Bike!

Those with real bikes, may be familiar with Whitehorse Gear...
This was just in the e-mail, this morning:

Electric Bikes, Hydrogen Bikes?
We've Got 'Em All Beat
Gasoline motorcycles won’t be around forever. Good progress is being made with alternative energy bikes but our wind-powered motorcycle will blow them all away! There’s usually a good breeze in the mountains of New Hampshire, which inspired the design of our wind-powered motorcycle! Sure, we’ve got a few bugs to sort out, like we’ll eventually need a 15-foot-tall garage door to clear the mast, and we don't know yet how we'll get home on calm days. For unexpected headwinds we’ve installed some really loud back-up beepers, so vehicles behind us will have plenty of warning that we’re stuck in reverse and backing up fast! But rest assured that our crack engineering team will make everything work. All things in good time, right?
