They're not rocket skates (curses), but these MotoSk8 motorized rollerblades are sure to motov8 that ass down the sidewalk at speeds up to 25mph, thanks to a 22.5cc, 2-stroke combustion engine running on plain ol' unleaded gasoline. The motor looks for like something off a weed-whacker, but I'd be a lot more worried about whacking my skull on the sidewalk at 25mph, if you know what I mean. And you should, because I'm not being witty - I have not yet mentioned that there are no brakes. Apparently you're supposed to coast to a stop, which is fine, until you coast into a parked car (or a moving one). Think I'll be taking a pass on these, at least until I can go out in style on some rocket skates.
