  • Rash (warning: pictures)

    Well, got caught squidding in the parking lot at work yesterday during lunch... on a pocket bike :P

    The little *******s are damn squirrely, and I made the mistake of letting go of one handlebar to look at a scratch on my hand. Now I have much more to look at:

    I forgot to put my gloves on, just hopped and rode around the lot. I will be getting a jacket soon though.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
    RIP Marc

              If you've never rode a pocket bike, they're surprisingly difficult to keep steady. The moment I let go of one handlebar, it headshaked and tossed me over the handlebars. Because of the yogic leg position while riding, my legs caught the bike and I flipped it over as well as myself -- scratched the tail fairing, but fortunately I had left the lower fairing at home.

              My friend took this pic with his camera phone after I rode back to where they were. You can see how small these things are:

                I bought one a few years back for my son as a project. Since it wasn't hard enough to ride the way it was I stripped it down completely. Pulled all the plastics off, zipped the frame tabs off, and chucked all the extras like speedo, battery, electric starter, key, etc. Went back through and replaced all the bearings, brakes, chains, and clutch pads.

                Up carb'd it, chambered it, keyed it, exhaust ported it, and then head swapped it for more CC + higher compression. Since I cut the key+battery+electric start out, I just wired a simple kill switch in.

                Now it's to dangerous to let my son actually ride. Probably does 45mph but feels like 80. (no speedo)

                With the plastic off and the tabs cut off the frame you really have to watch it or you can turn the wheel over hard enough to pitch yourself.

                              doesnt matter how small they are. those things can go above 35mph. thats fast enough to do a lot of damage.
                              Ride like there's no tomorrow!!! You never know when your going to run out of "tomorrows"!!!
