Wheelchairs are very restricting. You can't move your legs, and can't really use stairs. But some people do notice that wheelchairs have, well, wheels. Those wheels can be used for doing tricks like a skateboard. When someone puts the two together, they realize that a wheelchair can actually be entertaining! It can cause people to be impressed, to the point that they might even try it, even though they might not be disabled. Some other people might get mad for the ruckus you make. No matter what, in fiction, this can be done "UptoEleven"
