VIDEO: Drifting adult-sized big wheels

So not exactly directly related to subcompacts, but this was too cool not to share. I'm sure some of you remember "big wheels," those three-wheeled, front-wheel-driven, low-slung tricycles. If you were anything like I was, you'd go up and down the driveway and crank the wheel at the end to get the back-end to swing around. Dare I say "drifting"?

The above vid features some adult-sized big wheels, and some great "drifting" action. I want one. In fact, Huffy has released a new Green Machine, but it's for kids.

Thanks to Scott for the story idea!

I'm...having... difficulty... not... laughing....

One side of me says "Hey this is cool. I bet they've dreamed of doing that since they were six."

The other side of me says "Omgosh! Hahaha! What a bunch of dorks! Hahaha!!"
