I'm one of the lucky ones, she hates kids..

Seriously tho, the guy wants some money in that trade, and I really can't
afford to keep 2 bikes now, but would get into it if it was a straight up trade,
at least to have some fun on it for a season or two.

What I really need is a 50cc scoot so she can ride too (no big bike licence).

We get this thing here too, but it's just.. too big.

Women are evil creatures, hellbent on sucking the life out of you if you'll let them. Do what makes YOU happy. If you don't, no one else will. If your girl really loves you she'll understand. If she doesn't... hell, another will be along any minute now...

Back to the bikes... I still think that Madass looks cool as hell. Is 30 too old? Hell NO! I'm 48 and I'd ride it if in the right locale for a bike of that nature. As you get older you'll realize that age is a figment of peoples imagination. At least until your body won't cooperate with your mind any longer. My point is, as long as you're physically able, don't let a number dictate what you enjoy. You'll still want to have fun when you're 60 unless you let a woman make an old man out of ya, that is...

No kidding - I'm 64 and still having fun - probably more than when I was 40 (I really was much older then than now). I'm very fortunate in that my wife also rides and supports my desire to get out and play on 2 wheels.

Being older and no longer giving a shit what others think about what I ride/drive/fly/play, I'll show up at the Rock Store, Newcomb's Ranch, Neptune's Net, etc. on what ever feels good that day, including the Helix scooter.

If you enjoy the MadAss, then go for it. Hell, you can always change your mind and get a different one. The GF might even find that there's a certain caché to riding on one.

Here's the manufacturer's website - http://www.sachsbikes.com.au/

It comes in 50cc and 125cc - 50cc is CVT while the 125 has a four speed manual transmission. I'll take the 125 if I get one sometime in the future

GoKarts USA has the 125 version for $2695 on sale - normally $2995

that thing is super cool, about as minimalist as you can be.

kinda reminds me of a late 1990's or early 2000's canondale/specialized dual suspension mountain bike with an engine.


looks fun, and would be kick ass if they make dirt tires in that size. i mean, you could take that thing anywhere, even if you had to carry it over some stuff

They do make offroad tires for it, and whatever you do, DO NOT look up
the madass videos on youtube.

MadAss, BMW GS, Harley, etc. - I drool over quite a few of the bikes on here...





For some strange reason I keep coming back to the TW200. I've already got a bike that's handled everything the street and interstate have thrown at it and the TW looks like it would be just about perfect for learning to ride dirt. I'm not interested in speed, I just want to ride trails and enjoy scenery. It's also just got a look that seems to have some character to it and I can imagine having some real fun with a few cans of Krylon

The fact that it's street legal, would be good in town, and I'd be able to ride it to the trails makes an inexpensive used example a serious contender for my next bike Of course, with a daughter on the way it would make a pretty nice training bike for her when she gets older if she wants to learn to ride
