Re: SMASH! or 'Never Let ANYONE Ride Yer Bike'
I let a buddy of mine drive my spare bike a couple of times...big mistake! Even after clearly explaining how to use it and how to protect the precious two-stroke he came back after just two 3 mile trips and the engine was shot. It will barely stay running and it wont push past 10 MPH. I had the same bike up to 33 not long before. I am quite sure the cylinder walls are thrashed. I plan on performing an autopsy next week.
Given this experience I have adopted a new philosophy:
If you haven't spilt blood, sweat, and tears building a motorized bicycle as I have, then you will never ride mine!
