As we all know, limos are pretty much useless. They cost too much, and truthfully, they can make the toughest guy look like a super excited teenybopper on the way to prom or a Miley Cyrus concert. So, what do you do when you are confronted with a situation where you are forced to get a limo and you don’t want to look like a complete wuss? Well, you look for a Harley Davidson Limo.
Making its debut at the World of Wheels in 2004, the Anaconda has been the top dog- when it comes to Harley Limos- ever since. This bike features enough seating for 10 passengers and is 19 feet, 6 inches long, weighing 1,420 pounds. And obviously, it resembles an anaconda, the longest snake on earth.
When asked about his initial inspiration for the bike, creator Smokey McGill says, “I was Christmas shopping at the Mission Mall and saw a Harley trike displayed by Wright Brothers Bikes. On the way home I was thinking about it as the Cadillac of motorcycles. Then it hit me! I wondered why someone hadn’t built a limo motorcycle. When I got home, I made several copies of the trike photo from the Wright Brothers flyer. I cut them up and taped the pieces together to roughly illustrate the concept of a 10-passenger Harley trike. A few days later, I called Ron Wright and invited him down to our shop to talk about my idea. After seeing my illustration, he asked what I wanted from him. I told him I wanted him to give me one of his trikes to stretch.”
The Harley Davidson LimoBike
What happens when The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous meets the motorcycle world. Well, we get the Harley Davidson LimoBike. This unusual bike design blends comfort, luxury, and ummm, a little bit of bad taste.
In the front of this altered Harley, drivers can feel right at home, enjoying the open air whipping through their hair. But behind them, the bike is completely different. It is equipped with an eight person carriage that has all of the workings of a typical limo experience, including flat screen television and wet bar. Also, in the very back, there are two open air seats that allow riders to wave at passing traffic as if they were on a Macy’s Day Parade float.
Personally, if I had to choose between the two choices, I would go with the Anaconda 100 times out of a hundred. What does everyone else think?
