This is my life the last couple of months. Super busy one day and bored as shit the next. This is how we spent the next shift...


The days are warm and the nights cold but at least I don't have to shovel snow!


I wouldn't even try to guess how much horsepower that puts out .

I rode the wheels off of that bike, then handed it down to my brother (WFOman) who further beat the little honda. Dad (mountianmad) sold the totally roached 50 and actually got some money for it. So when Hack posted the pic of his, I contacted him about buying it. A deal was made but the only problem was the bike was in DE. If you have met Hack, you know his rig. So he took the wheels and bars off the 50, and layed it in the trailer behind the 'Strom. He delivered the thing to my front door! Totally awesome! I was at work, so my wife helped him put it back together and it started on the 2nd kick. When I got home that day, I had the biggest grin ever. I called my brother to come over, not telling him what I had procured. His jaw hit the ground when he saw it! I think it brought a little tear to his eye.
My family was able to go to the last VCHSS race of the year, and I took the 50. I had talked to my 8yo daughter about doing a race and she said was up for it, but was understandably nervous. After she watched her 4yo brother (Thunder Cox) particpate in the push bike race, she was totally in to racing the 50.
Thunder is 105 in the green helmet:


This pretty much sums up how his raace went:


Next up was Ella on the Z50 I got from Hack:


She rode great. Wasn't first, but didn't finish last either. Hopefully this is the start of something good!




The trophy is proudly displayed in her room. Hopefully, it's the first of many.


Thanks again to Hack for the way cool bike that will be cherished by my family for a very long time.

Brought tears to me and my wife... It just goes to prove ... the family that rides together stays together. If I can ony figure out how to put that 50 motor on a wheel chair in about 20 years it would be a complete cycle!!

That's pretty cool. Oddly enough, I just picked one of those up before T-giving for my little guy.



Even had Grandma out on it. Its was her first time riding/piloting a motorbike. She was grinning ear to ear. Not bad for a 70 plus year old!!
