Yep, pity I'm so far away now, 10 points for everyone you run over in your truck.

A Magistrate's son in there too!

Suppose he will get off any court action taken against them.

Might go up that road and hug the centre line, perhaps not ! will let our lamp posts take care of it, works with the clowns that take off from the police.

How much are those trikes ?
It does look like fun, but highly dangerous.

I was having a mean drifting session yesterday, on a chair :p

You can hire these little chairs with poles and skate on the lakes, you see the new people push too hard and miss a stroke on one side, the result is watching them spinning sideways... untill they fall over :D

Still, sometimes I wish I could watch the vids on youtube without a slow VPN

What a bunch of degenerates.

This crap will end in death and amputations. And we'll end up paying more for our rego... :(

I used to build my own trolleys as we called them with pram wheels.

We used to do the same in Invercargill where there is no hills. Had to be towed. The dog used to get that job.

I think with a bit of control this could be a great sport. Would love to give it a try.
Any one know what type of trikes they are??

There was a bit on Close Up on TV1 tonight about it. Mark interviewed a Senior Sergeant and a young person who is involved in drift trikes. They both had their say. It seems that they like to race when there is little traffic on the road ie in the early hours of the morning.

As a kid, I used to do the same sort of thing with those kiddy/baby push bikes. Me and a couple of mates used to go round the inorganics and pull them out if they were alright, and then we'd go doing pretty much this down the street, sliding and having great fun at slow to moderate speeds. Of course, ours was a pretty quiet street in west harbor, and the only person who ever nearly hit us was this one bag of a lady who would never slow down and intentionally try to kill us. But yeah that was more than 10 years ago. And

Yep. Port hills, bordering along the southern edge of Chch, got the, er, ah, port, on the other side. Got the Transmitter on the top of Sugarloaf.

One day I was stupid enough to walk from Phillipstown, right to the damn top. Stood right beside the antenna. Then promptly said fk this and hitch-hiked down.

An update.

Looks like the Police don't want to make a big issue of it.

Because you were looking at the wrong site perhaps.
