*LOL*



I'd seriously consider it for my nephew, but my sister would kill me just for giving him 'any ideas'!

Since I subscribed I've spent more time reading your stuff than I ever spent reading paper magazines. This article confirms my good judgement. Great sense of humor and awesome, real time articles!

I've also got a two year old grandson who is promised a PW50 when he's potty trained. As soon as he figures out what that means it's as good as done!

BTW, where did you get that child carrier the CPS was chasing you over? It looks like a backpack frame.

My brother bought one of these for my kids.



I am 6'1" and 200# and I ride it around the driveway a LOT.



Slow but very fun. The steering is like 10 degrees lock-to-lock and it requires big lean for turning. Did I say it is really fun?



Holds a charge for a long time.



Getting started is interesting as the seat to peg dimension is a bit tight. Better to put one hand on the ground and both feet on the pegs, then take off and get the hand to the bars quickly cuz this thing is not as stable as my real bike - the wheel base is a bit shorter.



The brakes are excellent BTW.



I'm waiting for the HRC kit though.

Since it's a Honda I assume it requires a special type of battery, a special type of electrical current at a unique special voltage and special tools (only available at the dealer) to do any maintenance, right?

I think Martin should adopt me and get me that Speed Triple I want for Christmas. We can get the paperwork through quick, so we still have time!

What is this "Honda" you speak about? Where can I find one?

The backpack is a Kelty Summit kid carrier that is basically a car seat strapped to my daddy's back. It's got a very secure harness and dad says that it's comfortable to wear. It is especially made for people who are going to climb, hike or ski with a little dude like me - and it works like a champ.

Somehow I can't see sending you and JR back into his room for a timeout. And I'm real sure that you won't fit into any of the plastic chairs.



Merry Xmas George
