Re: Ouch. Sucks for him...
I wonder just what kind of "accedent" he had...I'm thinking he did something stupid and blames it on the bike. The brake problem is easily solved with a dual pull brake lever, readily avalible.
6 months later he writes about it; scared him that bad. 10 minutes on a motorized bike is not long enough time to make any judgement. Just 'cause he couldn't deal with it doesn't make them "dangerous" anymore than riding a bike or a motorcycle.
