    No brakes, no engine, and you're good. Somebody go buy a Dnepr and own this thing.

    Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed their drinking buddy.

    If that's the case we could also bring a Ural since it's likely that the engine, brakes, and suspension doesn't work? :D

    I need to see if I can find a Green Machine. Anyone remember those?

    I had a "Chopperoo". It was longer than a Big Wheel, had rear chain drive, and a rubber treaded front wheel. It had a lot of great improvements, and was a lot faster and more stable. Never saw another one; guess they weren't marketed very well.

    Did the Green Machine have handlebars?

    No but it had these two knobs (yes, I wrote knobs) that you would steer with.

    Thank you Silke and Hunter as well as everyone who worked so hard so that we could have our fun at the rendezvous, you folks are the best of the best! Everyone, you people make this such a goofy good time, I smile for weeks after the event. I can't wait until next year.

    Regarding the 3 wheeler race; I can kinda understand the whole lack of propulsion thing and I am perfectly willing to drop the gsxr 1000 motor from my design but no suspension? That makes no sense at all. Pointless, I say!

    :lol3 I see your point of view, but a round butt makes up for lack of suspension :deal

    I guess, if you live in Georgia. We Canoodians sweated our balls off for 10 of 12 days.

    However, we tame Samsquanches, like our women unshorn and live through two seasons: winter and road construction.

    Plastic front tire, 3-position seat
    The feel of the pedals pressing on my feet
    Got the e-brake to slide the rear
    That rear wheel clicker ticking in my ear

    Around the corner, Down the street
    Out of sight, This is really neat
    Take a spill, Don't shed a tear
    Keep the neighbors pets in fear

    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Feel the breeze
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no green machine
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Around the block
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no hippity-hop

    Rigid front end, Front wheel drive
    Variable speed transmission makes me thrive
    Don't want no Huffy, Don't want no Schwinn
    Give me that three wheeler, Let the fun begin

    Saturday morning, 6am
    Gonna wake the neighbors, Don't let them sleep in
    Sit and Spin just won't do
    What I need's red yellow and blue

    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Feel the breeze
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no green machine
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Around the block
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no hippity-hop

    They're unbreakable plastic, Industrial strength
    To ride my big wheel, I'll go to any length
    Bigger kids chase us around
    But who's laughing now as we run them down

    Down a huge hill, 100 feet to go
    Lift your feet or lose a toe
    Crank the steering dirt track style
    Quick turn left, there's a dogshit pile

    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Feel the breeze
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no green machine
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    Around the block
    Buck neked on a big wheel
    I don't want no hippity-hop
