OK, OK, I’m way behind on this one too, but I thought I’d put it in, especially as it ties into my scooter ambitions, but with a dash of snowboarding. It’s the Wheelman, and is basically a 43cc cross between a scooter and a snowboard – it has two wheels, a motor in the middle and you stand on it a little like a snowboard, and thus ride ‘sidewards’. It looks great, but you can’t shake the nagging doubt that although it would be fun in a park, or at the beach, it would be a death sentence on the 246 (the double decker, insanity infested road which runs past my apartment). Anyway, apparently there’s a dealer in Tokyo, so I might go and take a look.
