Car-O-Cycle

The wind blowing around you like a mototcycle with the safety of a car.

Motorcycles are fun but dangerous since you have nothing around you to absorb impact from a collision and they're easily lost in blind spots due to their size.

Putting the motorcycle on top of a car body, then putting a rollbar over the rider would allow you to drive in the wind for a motorcycle ride effect with the safety and visibility of a car.

You'd add a seatbelt and airbags as well.

       Dangerous = fun.   

       // a seatbelt and airbags //   

       Presumably it is intended that the "rider" dies of boredom ?   

       Many small spaceframed sports cars can be configured for exactly this effect simply by unclipping body panels.

       mototcycle?

       An uncle of mine, when he was young, had a Messerschmitt bubble car. Apparently those were also made as convertibles whereby you rode with no roof on (presumably on one of the four days in the year that it doesn’t rain).

       // you rode with no roof on //   

       ... because you've been shot up by the Triumph Spitfire on your tail.   

       // one of the four days //   

       Ah, the weather was better then ...

       As somebody who's owned, ridden (and crashed) motorcycles, I can tell you, the fun part is the riding, not the crashing.

       This is probably the best idea I have read on this page. [+]

       Have you heard of convertibles? Or is that the joke. This sounds like a convertible.

       In a convertible you're sitting in a cockpit behind a windshield, with this you're astride a cycle body so you're entirely in the wind.   

       It's a motorcycle on top of a car for the protection of a car with the flying through the air effect of a motorcycle.

       So when you crash, you fly through the air. I’m sensing a flaw...
