Anyone ever ride one of these? Very intriguing.

I've occasionally encountered some folks "riding" these on the local trail. They always look pissed and unhappy. And they are barely moving.

Have not ridden on but imagine only good for down hill, as in hard to keep moving with 'side to side motion' that it calls for.

I occasionally see someone riding one of these down the street, looking way too enthusiastic and happy on it.

I think he was paid to ride it.

Sounds like a fictional character to me.
