The danger is that, by having wheels while riding wheels, you risk ending up in an Xzibit "Yo dawg" meme. Friends don't let friends end up in a "Yo dawg" poster.

That would be too much hassle. Think about stopping, getting off, putting kick stand down - all without rolling away.

I was wondering that, myself.

Also, where in the world is he going that he can't change his shoes when he gets there? He's got a backpack.

That would be quick enough to do the speed limit in first... no need to shift
