Brutal! But do you remember the Yamaha Trickster. Even with the smaller cc size that motorized bike would give a regular MX bike hell.

Reminds me of the Maui downhill bicycle tour I did with my son's Mom. It's about 20 miles of twisties...doing 40 or more at some points. You can easily break the speed limit and pass the cars.

He's right. The "quick reply" doesn't work.

I had the same password problem which kept me from 86ing spammers. I sent a few emails to the MO admin but never heard back. Everything started working for me again today.

When I was in rehab, a good fifty percent of the spinal cord injuries were from mountain bike accidents. In fact, the worst wrecks I've been in on two wheels (except for the last one) were on bicycles. Like when I was on leave from boot camp, I was in 10th gear on my Peugeot going into a big right hand sweeper at the end of Silverlake Blvd. when my foot came out of the toe-clip. I was the human scab for the last two weeks of leave, taking showers with dry cleaner bags taped to my body. Bicycles, feh.

When I was 21 I had the misfortune of being drunk on my butt and rear-ending a parked car on my Schwinn LeTour 3. To make matters worse the cars owner was throwing a keg and a bunch of party goers on the porch saw the event and decided to kick my ass for crawling around the grass looking for my spectacles.
After getting slapped around and kicked half a dozen times I was sent wobbling on my way with the admonishment to " stay off my f*ckin lawn maaan"

Buncha' bastards every one of 'em.
