Anyone up for a new ride?
« on: January 22, 2017, 11:07:49 PM »
I was playing around on the computer this afternoon and ran across this. I think it would be a hoot if only my knees weren't half shot! https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/videos/all-terrain-surfing-on-the-dtv-shredder/?ftag=CAD-07-10aah9h

Wouldn't play for me, Jon.  Do you have to be logged in to see it?  Or maybe it doesn't work to Australia.  Or...

Hmmm. Let me play with this for a bit. I'm pretty much lost when it comes to stuff like this. It works fine on this side of the pond...

Does this work? I can't seem to be able to imbed the video directly...

Here's a YouTube version.  I couldn't get the others to work, either. 

The journey is the destination!

I like it. No obvious issue as long as one is cruising or accelerating. I wonder about stopping in a hurry though.......

I see no practical reason to have one of those......Now, where do I sign up?
I wonder if I can get a demo?
