    Nice little earner

    I was down by the waterfront in Melbourne's docklands at the weekend, when a man walked up carrying a folding bicycle. He unfolded the bike, then marked out two parallel lines about 4 metres apart, and rode the bike back and forth a few times between the lines.

    He then put up a sign offering $50 to anyone who could do the same. But it cost $5 to try, and for that you could have 4 attempts.

    Naturally, lots of young men had a go, but no one won the $50.

    The catch? The bike had reverse steering - turn the handle bars to left and the front wheel turns right, turn the bars to the right and the wheel turns left.

    This video from You Tube shows what typically happens.
    Regards
    John
