pocket bikes at the Gap

I think I'm going to leave the R1 at home and take a pocket bike to the Gap instead!!

Sorry if this is a repost.

My one friend has a pocket bike with an rm 80 motor in it and that would be awsome at the gap.

Repost for about the billionith time.

I sent Ebbs the DVD this was taken from with his care package. It's not a rare occassion to find locals on 50's stepped up to 88 at the gap for night runs. This isn't done in the day that much anymore.

Sorry. Didn't have time to search for it. Maybe the TWF Rally next year should be done on pocket bikes?

Bad idea. I don't think Shan wants anything illegal tied to the rally. It's kind of like the big wheel races. We don't have the pull at the gap that the group that organizes those has or the amount of people that set it up to do it quickly and not interfere with traffic. This would be something you would have to do in your own and I recommend doing it at night.

LOL...ok Trip I was joking!! I wouldn't ever really consider riding a pocket bike at the gap, too dangerous. Just looks like fun.

I would and going to, if I have it in time for the next rally I will bring it along. I just won't associate it with any rally events.

There are no intersections, stay in your lane and you will be fine. People know to look for bikes at the gap.

I want to try it on a CRF150 or TTR125 Motard. I spent way too much time on my ZX6R in second gear and think it would be more fun on a less powerful bike. I was even eyeing up the Ninja 250's cruising it the weekend I was there. Now the Cherahola Skyway is a big bike kinda road!

I probably couldn't... Fat and bad knees does not bode well for pocket biking...

This has been reposted so many times, I should banninate you to next century.

Instead I will merge it with one of the other numerous reposts.
