Cow-asaki

Confuse cows and people at the same time

A light weight plastic cow is attached to a quiet electric bike so that the bike and rider are conceled inside the cow. The rider then drives this cow at high speeds amongst a pasture of real cows. All this should be done near a highway. This would be a confusing show for both the cows and anybody driving by.

       I like it. I don't get it, but I like it. Where would the rider see out of the cow?

       Through the mouth I suppose... unless the mouth is operable and moves in sync to a song or public address that the cow plays through a speaker.

       How about several Yamahatadors, with lances, chasing the Cow-asaki around? (being careful to avoid lancing the real milkers of course)

       Nice pun. What's the idea again?   

       Is is possible to confuse cows?

       Riding real Kawasakis around cattle makes farmers really really REALLY mad.

       First of all, hippo, this is not baked. With Cow-asaki, the rider is in the cow, not on it. To casual passers by, it looks like this crazy cow, rippin' it up in a pasture. This is different than looking like some guy is riding the cow. I have to say, though, I don't like the electric bike part... they just don't have the speed. Although gas powered bikes are noisy, they aren't THAT noisy, and almost certainly wouldn't be heard by passing motorists travelling at highway speed.
