Forget Flying Cars... Bring on Flying Motorcycles

As a child reared on sci-fi, I was raised expecting the invention of flying cars around the year 2000. Even Back to the Future 2 had flying cars in 2015 that looked realistic. Personal jetpacks are available now for a steep price. I would love this as a commuter vehicle. Just make it look like a custom motorcycle with the 300mm rear wheel and front wheel way out there. Of course, wheels are net required, but it would look more stylish. Have it so the person sits atop the motorcycle with the jet propulsion under the motorcycle frame. Since most motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers or road surface slips, they could potentially be safer than ground based motorcycles.

Picture that flying at 80 mph. Go get your WW1 goggles.
