kids bikes More $.02

Stuckin:
I have had great results by taking a 2 stroke crosser and adding about 3" of header pipe. This mod pulls the peak down on the rpm and broadens the powerband. Then add a good SA muffler. It's amazing! I have an RM modified this way. I took my grandson riding, with no practice behind him - had a great time. Yes starts were abrupt but they were starts. I'd sell but it's in Idaho and I'd keep it if I wasn't in TX. oh well

Different bike. The Husky will rip your arms off. Better have it pointed in the right direction before you pull the throttle. Not a kid's bike in any sense of the word.

I'm whooped from 1,000+ miles on a 1995 Buell S2 Thunderbolt. I had great riding partners (my brother and a couple just about to turn 80 yrs old, it was their Buell).
The lady rides her own big Harley and is in the Motor Maids club (women riders, started in 1940). She is the best, safest cruising rider I have ever seen. She's riding solo to Oregon next month, then back to FL, then to UP Michigan, then FL, then coming to AR for BBBQ on the way back from yet another trip out west to San Diego!
She's well past the million mile mark.

I'll post a link to pictures later, but will share one now.
The African Queen from Bogarts movie was neat. Got to see it pull out under steam power.

I bet it was one of those damn "Kansas City fagots" you let park at your place last fall! You can't trust those a-holes!
