I did not want to start a new topic just to ask this question, so I will ask it here. What does RAGBRAI stand for?

Freaky - I was just wondering this yesterday, even wandered into that sticky to look at 'em.
Couldn't quite figure it out by looking at the busses there.

John, Thanks for answering my question. I had a friend who did two west coast to east cost bicycle rides. One was on a regular bicycle. One was on a recumbent. He now rides nothing but recumbent bicycles.

Getting back on topic, that Futureliner is beautiful. I think that the 302 motor might be a little small for a vehicle that size.

I think this was sold at a Barret Jackson auction over new years over 5 years ago for 10 million...But I got CRS so the price might be off...It was bought by a guy at the auction who worked for a very rich guy that was starting a museum and was buying up rare vehicles like they were day old rolls.

It was 1 of 3(?) concept vehicles and is not road legal in any state.

12 were made! http://www.futurliner.com/other.htm
