i got to get my bikes "tuned" and mod'd before i try that - and i'm gonna try and practice in a "grassy" area as to limit tailbone damage!
cuz when you go over on a PB, your feet are too close to the ground to catch yourself before you go over

very cool.

looks like once you are up, keep the throttle constant and don't move and you'll fine for a long time.

I do think if you practice on grass you may issues unless the surface is good (like a football field)

OK smart a$$. I mean they have the pocket bikes and then the bike bikes we ride. I have also seen ones that are in the middle of them. Still 50cc I think, but could be bigger. If they are bigger then 50cc, do you think they could allow them on the roads in the future or no.

Your still a smart a$$

if you can title/tag it with the DOT..you can make it legal... local cops around here that we know say they pick up tons of these things on a daily basis and confiscate them.

and yeah, I was born a smart arse

if you want street legal mini - try ebay for a yamaha YSR50 or YSR80 - back when i was in high school, a few kids had them and they WERE street legal - Honda now makes the NSR 50 but it is NOT street legal - it's the same concept except for full race only
