Here's a multi-talented rider

How many of us can mow the lawn while riding your bike and chugging down a pint?

If you look really hard you'll notice that his T-shirt says "REAL MEN ONLY NEED ONE WHEEL".

I guess what he means is that real men don't care how utterly ridiculous they look.

I was going to post this in the departed Unicycles forum. This photo came from an alt.newsgroup where a challenge was thrown down to mow and drink while riding. Thought that was inventive.

We need our own challenges here at bikeforums. Hmmmm... I feel a thread stirring here...

I wonder if that's not one of those "hover" mowers. I had one years ago. Didn't keep it very long though...

Now how many people will fall into the trap Rich? (As someone who once asked for steak tartare done medium rare)

Reminds me of a film where a texan was asked how he wanted his steak. He said "Just wipe the steer's ass, lop off it's horns and run it past me"

Opps,

I've never seen a Lawn Mower like that . Looks like a Vacuum Cleaner . Brewski's and Lawn Mowing lead to lessening of the toes . Unless , of course , you're riding a unicycle . :confused:

Interestingly, Dean Kamen's inspiration for the Segway scooter came from unicycling, a hobby of his teen years.

Speaking of "Segway," or, "Ginger," whatever they call that device
that has only two wheels side-by-side, runs on electricity and steers by means of ? who-knows-how...

My friend at work (yes, I have only one friend, and he works with me ) said he saw a uniformed person (not a policeman) riding
one very slowly on the sidewalk just outside the building where we work.

The invasion has begun!
