    i just tried a dirtbike for the first time ever!

    it was a 100CC 4 stroke bike..

    it was pretty cool. i wasnt expecting the throttle to be quite so responsive though, heh.




    plus, when i went to stop i habituatlly shifted my weight back over the rear tire, and in stretching out I rolled my wrists back. instead of a nice smooth bike stop i got *VROOOOOM* "AIIIIIIIIII"



    then another time i accidentally let go of the clutch, and rocketed into a nearby tree but managed to bail and hit the stop.

    also nailed into a fence when i didnt have the clutch down and started up in first gear...


    i also noticed how disconnected you feel from the ground you're on, felt like floating. it was pretty cool, but i prefer feeling whats under my tires


    all in all i could never give it up for my bike, but i suppose it might be nice to try once in a while.



    anybody else ever try one of these things?

    Maybe five or six years ago I tried one. Just sort of screwed around with it in my friends field. Nothing to exciting. There is to much enironmental impact for me to even consider trying one again, let alone give up my mountain bike for one.

    i also found it very fatiguing.


    constant vibrations
    If you don't fall, you're not riding hard enough.

    Ride it like you're breakin' outta jail.

    a 100cc bike is good.. very light, very manueverable..

    At first its tricky, especially the clutch. but you'll get the hang of it..

    I ride a Honda XR 200cc . Its not as light as the 100cc ones, but the power is awsome.. My bike has over 40,000kms on it..

    please remember, just like bicycles, your primary brake is the the front one.. Use the rear for controlled skids, etc. The front if you want to stop..
