I would hate street riding too if i had to ride that .

All kidding aside, I'm super jealous of your offroad collection. After riding a buddies 400 the other day I've gotten the itch. I live in a very rural area too so why the hell not.

Do these count as motorcycles?



Brought them home in a Jeep Cherokee... amazing what you can fit inside one of them.

50cc 2 strokes ? Easy to get more power out of them if so.
Tell us more about the CRX, I always liked those in the Si styling as far a econo cars looked.

CRX is a DX (2nd lightest model) with a ZC swap, built as an autox/track car. Bigger brakes/suspension/bushings and once seat/harnesses get in it'll get track time. Previous owners did all the right things to it, all performance... no fluff. Weighed 1840lbs before I put the rollbar in and swapped to lighter wheels (enkei in Miata offset... because good deal).

It is a pure joy to drive...

Yup, 50cc 2 strokes... and lol at the chopper handle bars on that first guy... no Moped Army style for me, except as a resource for information and to swap parts with folks.

Apparently the acceleration on these things is orgasmic.



EDIT: NEVER MIND I found your new riding buddies.

Mopeds!!! No scooters here... PEDAL POWAH!!!

The riding "buddies" are more like the Harley wannabe picture above than the college kids renting Zumas at the beach. At least that would be my target audience when I flip most of them.... and keep one for a track pit bike.

And what's that? A worldly price tag! $18,999. Still a huge chunk of change but for what it is, not bad.

Did you ever see this?

Glad EBR is actually making production bikes again.

Makes me happy happy inside. I loved the Harley-engined bikes, mostly because they were a blast to ride, got incredible fuel economy, were lightweight, were unique, were comfortable as sportbikes go, were affordable, were hand-built, were simple...

Sheesh. I guess I liked them. Wish I could still ride motorsickles :( I need another Miata in my life.

I took my bike out over the weekend for a little "oh what the hell ride".
Gave it the beans in 2nd.
Went straight home and parked it after experiencing wheelspin for the first time on two wheels.
