I was out of words when I saw this.. So were many of us on the internet, which lead to this man quickly earning his 15-minutes of fame.. He accepted a $700 fine and a one-month license suspension after the police caught him..
All this poor 29-year-old from Melbourne, Australia wanted was to recycle a barbecue he’d seen wasting away on the side of the road. Sadly, you can’t do something this ridiculous and not become an internet sensation and police target.
Kiwi Michael Wiles saw the discarded BBQ on the side of the road and decided it would make a nice addition to his home. Driving only a motorcycle, he had to fit the BBQ over his body by actually wearing it. Putting his body through the lower storage area sort of makes sense, but wearing the grill itself on his helmet seems to have sparked the most trouble.
