Cool

I was looking through so old threads and saw a link to this site http://www.pocketbike.com/ and wondered if anyone has one. I think they'd be a blast terrorizing the neighbors or taking them to a gocart track.

Check out this little guy

My little girl would go crazy if I got her one of these. Of course it would be mostly mine . Actually with a top speed of 65mph and the wheelie ability they're probably pretty dangerous for kids. I sure would have loved one though.

I'd like to see someone make one street legal and ride it to work.

Rug Burn won't get one of these things, He would be afraid that his wife will get on it and beat him thru the curves It would be the perfect size for her, too.

ive been trying to get people into those for over a year now.. everyone thinks they are cool but they dont want to buy one. i dont see why not.. u can set up a whole race series in a parking lot & race a whole season for the cost of a bike & gas.. u dont even need leathers (if u run the smaller horse power motors).. jeans & a thick shirt & roller hockey pads plus your helmet.

u want to see america dominate world racing.. start on pocketbikes & flat track bikes then when they turn 14 or so put em on a 125 then by the time they are 18 they could be on 125 or 250 world gp bikes... valentino rossi started this way too.
