He just wants to make people smile.
And the man dressed in the Elmo suit riding around Cardiff on his Honda MSX125 Grom, does just that.
Known on YouTube as CRDF Rider he told Wales Online newspaper:
It was a cloudy Sunday and I had an ‘Elmo’ helmet cover from some seller on eBay and I thought I’d throw on some red clothes and ride around. I never thought I’d get the reactions that I did, and still do.
Watch and enjoy.
