Doesn't look like it. Would also be a little more difficult to make, considering that the front wheel has to turn side-side.

Although I have very little clue (or none at all) about bikes, I would expect the tacho-output near the gearbox output shaft.
(pure guessing, though).

Driving this way on a public road, he must have a 1-digit IQ.
Even if a crash would (probably) be worse for his health than for the bus or camper, it's a scene I would rather not be part of, regardless which vehicle I would be in.

He deserves to meet an oil slick in the curtesey lane, while nobody is near. What an idiot.

the rider is enjoying albiet at others' cost.
but he is a fool,the net balance of damage would have tilted towards him had anything gone wrong.
It is fun to do good biking,where u r safe and so are others.
Life is not cheap,u get to live only once.
