I am officially a pocket bike geek
I just couldn't help it. They are so inexpensive, so fast, and so fun that I just had to get one.
This weekend, I'll be racing it here. It is a go-kart track that looks perfect for pocket bike applications. I figure a few test sessions and a heat or two will tell me what I need to do with the bike as far as gearing and tire pressure goes.
Everyone tells me to expect top speeds of around 30 mph from the 49cc two-stroker, and from what I could gather by ripping up and down my street on it this evening (much to my neighbors' discontent, I'm sure) I'd say that estimate isn't far off.
Details and race results to come.
