Motorized two-wheel transport wows

It’s never too early to be thinking about the next James Bond movie, and that’s exactly what I thought of when I saw these motorized, two-wheeled all-terrain boards. Built by a tiny Australian company, you can get one in the U.S., if you’re able to part with $1,500. Video clips demonstrate riders who zip down the beach, dodge through the brush and occasionally leap into the air on gas-powered platforms.

Disclaimer: I’ve never ridden one of these myself, and if I did, you wouldn’t want to be standing anywhere near me. Regardless, this method of transportation looks much cooler than the pogo boots alternative listed on this site: www.electronsoup.com/xcom/Transport/
