Scooters can be a great way to negotiate the hustle and bustle of urban traffic. That's seemingly one of the only things that the engine-powered machine has in common with its much more simple pedal-powered two-wheeled sibling, the bicycle. Unless you're name is Boulon, a scooter rider who hails from Marseille in France.

Marseille is home, logically enough, to the Bowl of Marseille, a well-known skatepark that attracts adventure seekers from around the globe. Whereas most people hit the Bowl with inline skates, a skateboard or a BMX bicycle, Boulon chooses to attack the course with a motor scooter.

We know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes. There is video. The Vimeo description incorrectly calls the scooter a Vespa, but that's okay. What really matters is the footage, and that doesn't disappoint, with multiple camera angles and even some slow-motion action shots. Want to watch? Hit the jump.

Oh, and while we of course suggest you don't try this at home, if you do, at least wear a helmet...
