A cool video about Kerry McLean who is the inventor of the Monocycle, a one wheeled motorcycle type vehicle. Filmed in 2006 by professional filmmaker Stephen McGee. Given my lack of ability to even ride a regular motorcycle there is no doubt in my mind I would crash the Monocycle. As Kerry says in the video this awesome machine requires a lot of concentration and skill to operate.

The main problem with the monocycle is that it doesn't work in the real world. What do you think happens in an emergency stop?

Same thing that happened to me when my Shadow stopped suddenly years ago........I learned my Superman flight skills are GREAT.....and my superman landing skills are not-so-good.
