Why would I want a poor handling jet ski and motorcycle? Especially at that price.

While it is kewl, I agree with the last commenter:
For $40k, you can buy a scooter, jetski, trailer, and truck to tow them all.
I wouldn't own one, but I might rent one!!!!

Probably not.  Cars make poor boats and boats make poor cars.. I doubt it would be much different for scooters.  To many compromises needed to make the same vehicle work for both applications.

Not for me......

Maybe  more inclined for a trailer for the Silverwing, on which to take a canoe or small row-boat to the waterways.
