Now that's what I call a riding mower!

Home Inspector with Superior Home Inspections - Greater Albuquerque Area InterNACHI 10041206

I have been a Honda fan most of my life. Back when I was a little guy, I had a QA50 Honda motorcycle and worked my way up to what I have now. I have a Honda Shadow. But anyway, Honda is all about innovation, from racing engines to lawn mowers. Here, they have topped themselves yet again! They have built a riding lawn mower capable of speeds to 130 MPH!! Wow, I got to look into that! You could cut the grass during halftime!!

                            

 

 

Here's the link with the story: http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2013/07/18/honda-builds-130-mph-lawn-mower/?intcmp=obinsite

 

Those guys are unbelievable! That, and they have too much money and time on their hands... LOL

I have seen this Fred, it's a crack up. The boys and their toys.

Amusing post. When I was a kid at 12 years old I had a Honda 70 in 1970 when they came out. It was 4 speed, easy to learn on 4 down shifting. I used to make jumps out of wood and pretend I was Evel Knievel who was my hero at that time. I remember many time stopping traffic as I jumped and got 4 or 5 feet in the air.

Fred this must be the Tim Taylor (The Tool Man) version of a super duper riding lawn mower :)

No Fred one of my best friends was killed instantly by a head injury and my mom begged me to stop. I never was a street biker. I love to view Harleys, Indians and even BSA's but for looks only.

So someone really needs to do 130 mph while cutting the lawn??? Do they get a silver trophy cup if they win? Fred, you are too much :-). Are you coming to the meet-up?

OK, to cut the lawn at 130 mph, I would think you need some heavily banked grass!  :-)

I had a Toro push mower when I operated my fine lawn-mowing company as a teenager.  I went American!

It didn't go 130 though...

People need to be careful with these riding mowers, there have been too many accidents involving children lately!

Fred, I think at this time of the year, you need a lawn mower that cuts grass that speedily!  It's growing like crazy!
