What has two legs, two wheels, and two flame throwers? That would be LRRY.

Why is this a good post for Metafilter?

I'm guessing the creator of LRRY is holding a flamethrower to Chocolate Pickle's head, I can't see how he would find it interesting otherwise.

Dudes! Flamethrowers!

Yeah, maybe no.

It seemed interesting, but that video is really hard to watch.

I thought it was kind of neat, in a totally dorky way.

Also reinforced that a "wife beater" is never a good fashion choice.

I do think a chainmail wifebeater would have gone better with this junkyard gearbox flamethrower monster chariot.

When I first saw the FPP, I was kind of hoping it was a cyclist who decided to strike back.

Apologies for the upcoming derail.

That is the most impractical thing I have ever wanted.

And that's saying something, believe me!

I look forward to the next two models, DRRL and his other brother DRRL2.

because it's infinitely more creative & interesting than the usual slyt posts?

Cool machine, but that video is terrible.

2 Legs + 2 Wheels + 1 Freaking Flamethrower = Awesomesauce!

looks kinda cool in an arty sort of way, but yeah the video sucks 7 ways to orbit. Looks uncomfortable to ride too.

There are actually two flame throwers. There's one in the tail, too.

So is this what happens when you meet a stranger in the alps?

Well, there are strangers and there are strangers.

LRRY is somehow less than the sum of its awesome parts. I wanted to like it, I mean c'mon, it has a flamethrower, but no.
