Photo Two – some kind of gravity trike being used by a FastPass-equipped pilot going backwards past the car you can see in Photo One. I’ve never seen this kind of vehicle before, don’t know what makes it go:

And Photo Three – an involved yell-fest with the popo:

Complete with his “Wild Kid” T-shirt, this man has got it going on, leaning this way and that down Ignatius Heights.

For those about to trike, we salute you.
