    An hour ago two county sheriffs, two U.S. Marshals and a guy from the EPA came to my door. They demanded to see my bikes and they had a Federal warrant allowing them to examine and confiscate. I took them to the garage and the EPA guy took one look and said, "take all of them".

    They had a black Chevy SUV with a trailer which had three other motorized bikes in it and they loaded my four and drove away. The U.S Marshals presented me with a warrant to appear in Federal Court in two weeks to answer charges of violating Fedeal EPA regulations.

    My lawyer is out of town, won't be back until tomorrow. I'm afraid I'm screwed.

    There is no way they can do that Tom, you cant break a Federal EPA law if they're just sitting in the garage....lol!

    Don Grubee must be behind it. You own one of those no-name Chinese imports that have no EPA approval. LOL

    They should give 'em back after they've drilled holes in the Wankerstein/Canoutter valves.

    I've found that you can actually find new Wankerstein/Canoutter valves in the supply closet of your local Dairy Queen. Good luck!!

    Got my bikes back. I went to the impound yard wearing my magic hat and they didn't give me any problems. In fact they brought the bikes home for me. I'll bet they think twice before messing with me again.

    The old "hat trick" does it again! Tom, put that hat on ebay, you'll make a bundle.

    Ha ha laff. Could you imagine that though. We would have to be some serious outlaws with these for that to happen.
