    Personally I'd put your foot down and just say no on this one. Just look around, no one is on them anymore. I believe there are rules about using them on pavements now or something as well and they are heavy buggers to lug about.

    Taking in to account the risks and cost for the very short time they will spend on it I wish I'd said no.

    Personally I'd just say yes to this one. Funnily enough I happen to know one that's going very cheap, barely used, just PM me.

    The only experience I've had of them is avoiding teenagers using them illegally on pavements and in the local parks. (Oddly haven't seen any for a while.)

    I've actually felt sorry for them as unless you have a large paved garden and/or drive there is no where you can use them legally, and even then using them in the same location multiple times is f***ing boring.
