If i get one i world want to get into racing them but will be tooling around the 350,000sqft warehouse to start with.

I'm so glad I really didn't have a place to ride them because this one would have killed me many times over:

Mmm... Monkey bike goodness.

A friend of mine has a couple and we always rode the **** outta them. So much fun in such a little bike.

We later got a pair of SDG speed mini 107 and turned them into mini Motards. A ton of fun in empty parking lots and hard packed dirt. They weren't so good in deep loose dirt though.
I need to get mine back, I left it in Corpus when I moved to Dallas.

Grab some blow and a hooker while you're down there.

To a jury, that might sound like motive.

Sorry to see that. I just laid down my bike at about 5mph, but I just got a scraped knee. Glad you are alright!

You want those smaller 49cc bikes, the ones with no suspension or lights. They are a blast and will drag peg. We raced them in Key West on a running track back in 04.
