the most endaering quality ? you can carry it around in your trunk , so when you get stuck in the middle of nowhere with a broken caddy you got backup transportation

they even got a racing series for the hard core versions , but at 2k for something that small ill pass , but 500 bucks for the imitation doesnt sound too bad

The police in California are concerned over these. They interviewed the kid on the evening news a few days ago who makes them, and he said you have to be careful because his don't have shocks, so the faster you go, the more dangerous. Apparently he can't keep them in stock.

I always wanted a mini-bike as a kid, but my Mom would NEVER have bought me one of these. :rant2:

if it ait tax titled and licensed its not street legal and therefore has not business on the street. so where are these bikes ening up if they are not safe for street use? minibike designed for off road used for offroad. whats this designed for and where is it used? any way im way too big for one of those. I got this strange idea to do some wicked custom lawnmower

I don't think they are illegal? They wouldn't allow a liscence then, right? The kid that makes them seems to have a legit business, and if this fad continues, he'll be very rich very fast. I think people are buying them because they can, they are cute, and they go like hell. The California cop made a note about how they are unsafe because on these things, your head is level with most car bumpers! :bonkers:

as quoted from the pocket bike forums :

"moped kill
there was this moped running around town yesterday and i was riding my cag (stock) and i can up to him at a stop sign and asked him if he wanted to race (thinking i was going to get smoked). He gladly says yes. So i waited for him to take off then i hammered the throtle. Once i hit the trotle i walked away from him. I figured i would have lost but he stood no chance. "

OMG that thing is small. (geez, I think I heard that in the bedroom last night?) Anyway, what's the deal with the suspension, is it active? On the news in LA they said it's not functional, and that's part of why they are dangerous?

I see what you mean by "spots in your driveway" Stoney :p
