Bush Pig

I'm not talking about the U.S. president. I'm talking about the Wheelman Bush Pig. I took a demo ride on one this afternoon. Lots of fun. It's a motorized scooter you ride with a snowboard stance. Accelerator and brake are controlled by a cable that goes to your hand. Unlike a snowboard the front foot is used to turn, essentially acting as the front axel. It was tough to get up and get going. I had to ride regular foot because you have to detach the front wheel to set it up for goofy. The front wheel was too loose around my foot so I couldn't pull a good turning radius. But, once I got the hang of it, it was a blast. Not sure it was $900 worth of good times so I haven't bought one, yet.
