Trike Drifting: A New Life for Big Wheels (VIDEO)

 Welcome to the Morning Buzz, a catch-up on interesting happenings around the city and country and a quick guide to what (and who) to keep your eyes on. We'll be here, first thing every weekday, to get you going. Here's what's buzzing this morning:

All footage was captured by Devin Graham using a Glidecam HD 2000. Check out the video after the jump ...
