PS Hayabusa is the model of the bike. It's made by Suzuki, and for several years was the fasted road-legal bike available straight from the manufacturer, with a top speed of over 300kmh, or about 190mph.

I think it's stupid & dangerous.

A motorcyclist uses both feet, the left for changing gear (up and down flicking movements), the right for the rear break (a downward push). If this rider wedges the levers in the skates to make sure they don't slip off, he is still going to lose "feel" through those rigid soles.

And when he needs to put his feet down when stopping, what if he can't get them free? This will mean a topple from the bike - not dangerous at a stop, unless you fall under traffic...

And jenvanleigh - don't do it! You are going to break your foot!
