    Wish I had a bike cam, not only was the guy riding some 50cc scooter, I know bad right?

    With him on the scooter he had 4 metal poles 2-3m long sitting on the footrest under his arm and sticking out the back about head height.

    What drives people to think this sort of thing is a perfectly safe idea

  2. Sounds perfectly normal and OK to me.
  3. Roll bars :D :D
  4. This. Stopped from running forward by the boards, and clamped under the armpit to stop them running backwards. The harder you brake or accelerate, the harder you squeeze...
    Nothing to see here, move along please...
  5. Speaking of curious scooter loads, here's one courtesy of the QLD Police FB page's 'What the? Friday' posts...:LOL: Doesn't even come close to the efforts of our counterparts in SE Asia though.(y)
  6. As long as he had a rag on the poles to give warning if there was a risk of another rider copping a face full (the lack thereof shits me), then as others have said.
  7. What's wrong with a 50cc scooter?
  8. It has to be a 2-banger with a peashooter exhaust, right?
    RrrrrrrRRRIIIIIIINNNNNNNGGGGG ninga ninga ning.....
    Good times...
  9. Is there some sort of law against bikes having luggage?
  10. Yeah, as in "bars to make you roll."
  11. got nothing on these guys............

  14. Some of us only own two wheels and need to carry stuff sometimes.

  15. I really really hope those logs are balsa :D.

    vacuum cleaner fine I was just quite weary of the ability of these metal rods ability to impale someone with only the slightest of force just sitting there pointing right at me O.O They were far from thick

  18. My first thought was:

    Cool! a flying scooter... :)
  19. Mate as long as you had all the gear on you'd be fine.

  20. I don't know, but given his position as the one doing it, he would have a far better idea over you as to whether it was safe or not.

    You remind me of a car driver ranting about how dangerous filtering is.
