Wheelman on the street. Wheelman on the grass. Wheelman on the beach. Wheelman past the Pee-wee Herman-clad cyclists at a whopping 26 mph. Oh what's that, padded spandex ass? Yeah, my speed is generated by a 50cc 2-stroke gas engine. So what? I'm still getting to the Starbucks before you, and I'm buying the last Power Protein Bistro Box! Suck it, human-powered purist!

The Wheelman is a center engine mounted skateboard designed for terrains as varied as acceptable applications of the F word. Except snow. It doesn't work on snow. But F snow. Snow can F off and go F itself in the F'in eye for F's sake. All the while the Wheelman will be tearing down the sidewalk, back up the road, and through the neighbors' combat gnomed front yards to the sweet tune of two little words: F yeah.

Each end of the Wheelman board has a spokeless wheel support for foot insertion. Balance and maneuvering feel similar to that of other board sports, such as surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding. Those accustomed to the former should be able to pick up Wheelmanning during their first day of training. Everyone else, check your insurance deductible prior to mounting.
