Pretty cool bet the cops would give you crap about it today though.

Sure they would, patty, but what would the ticket be for? They're skates, so of course they're not street legal, and they're not a bike or motorbike, so no helmet is required. Jaywalking, maybe?

Illegal around here. The law classifies as a vehicle anything with a motor and capable of hauling a human. It then sorts vehicles by horsepower, whether the person is enclosed, agricultural/industrial use, etc.

Those skates, according to the law here, are the same as a mini-bike -- not allowed on streets or sidewalks, helmet must be worn, etc.

Yeah, they suck the fun out of everything.

Wile E. Coyote's mistake was not going to the salt flats! You do not test rocket powered anything near cliffs! Well maybe a rocket plane. :lol: :coolsmile:
