Wicked AZ - Monkey F****** a Football Rally

Slowred, Refokus and I went to Crown King last weekend and saw this:




The scooters came up the back way from Lake Pleasant! This spawned the idea for a race to Crown King on scooters. Through some back and forth PMing it has evolved into something even more sinister. How about a Scooter & Mini/Pit-Bike race to Crown King? Small wheels and small engines! Bring what you have or find something cheap to race. Maybe a 150cc limit. Use this thread to discuss rules (if any). We're thinking a trophy at the Mill for the winner(s)!

Would a Honda trail110 count even though it's got 16" wheels?

I was actually thinking about an upper limit of a 16" wheel.

You're doing 100 in speedos?

I'm getting all kinds of ideas here for this race.

I think you're already cheating. Isn't a mini-bike normal sized for you?

This could be fun. I have one of these I could pull out of mothballs. Same color even.

That does sound like fun, you guys should consider having a sweep in a 4wd truck to pick up the pieces.
