Default Re: Chinese Precision European Bike Clones...I Wee'd Me Pants

Maybe we should make the Chinese take a Pontiac Aztek and an MV Brutale for every container they ship over here

All they do is ugly up the roads, the MV's can't even go 45 miles without stopping

I'm seeing them here in Boston too, a couple of kids were screaming down the middle of sideroad followed by an old beat up van just holding his horn down the whole way. Absolutely hilarious. Boston Globe article . Seems like they'll be legal here until some 14 yo gets creamed.

Still looks like fun though

My neighbor just bought one and one of my best buds has one. They both of working lights, signals and mirrors, and little 49cc lawnmower engines. I don't see any problem with them so long as they're restricted to residential sidestreets and that helmets must be worn. My bud is fool, because regardless of my warnings to wear a helmet, he rather would not. On top of that, he tries to do stunts like the superman and whatever else they're called. I hope he lives to see his next birthday. I change my mind, they need to be better regulated. Although they have small engines, they're far more dangerous than similarly displaced scooters.

Default 6'-4" TALL

I'd love to try one of these things out (in a parking lot or go cart track), but don't know if I could even fit on it. Hell they look like a blast to ride.

Anyone that rides one on the street (cause no motorized vehical belongs on a sidewalk) is just a darwinian experiment

Ha ha! You ARE a silverspooned robber baron!



Say hello to Dubya for me. Tell him his plan to ensure his re-election by having KPaul stump for Kerry is working brilliantly.

I will be meeting with legislators and not the executive branch. Maybe I'll scare the crap out of McCain and tell him his biggest fan is in Seattle.



I interviewed McCain back in my reporter days. He was actually a pretty decent guy compared to some of the others like slimy DeConcini and wacky Evan Mecham.
