Well may not have been very comfortable but that is how they ride and I had to use one everyday for track inspection 365 days a year. I enjoyed every min I rode my car. Later RJDMy brother-in-law and I were able to get a ride from Silverton to Rockwood and back on a speeder during Rail Fest a few years ago. It was a lot of fun but not very comfortable. Loud and very jiggly, my brother-in-law described it as riding in a Mixmaster. Great way to view the track.
