    I just got this in an email.......

    and it may be old but it sure makes me feel old. I think I can safely say this is something I would not do.

    Merry Christmas and enjoy the human road toboggan.

    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    Can you imagine being passed by a human with wheels on this knees and elbows? I figure that is some CE approved armor?

    With all the delayed apex turns, the support crew must have blocked off some areas until the stunt-person passed.
    It does look like fun, but I would not do it.

    I used to have stones like that . . . .

    When I first started riding BMWs in 1972, I was immortal. Foolish, stupid and lucky.
    What a ride!!!!

    I can't find it anymore, but back about two years ago, I saw a short video where he does a "before" and "after" shot of the wheels. After one run, they are burned down to just about the bearings.
