Note that the Scorpa has pedals for footpegs--"honest, officer, it's a bicycle!"

I found a web site with ads for the BSE and the prices for 'em were $1600-1700. That's pretty cheap entertainment. If they really are quiet imagine strafing the mountain bike trails down in the forest with it. Whoo-hoo!!!

If you bought a mountain bike tag what would they bust you for? Illegally using a motor vehicle on a trail? Probably. But you'd have a million bucks worth of fun in the process and since they look like a bicycle I'd venture to bet no one would notice until you went buzzing by.

Somebody figure out the best price and let's do a group buy. I'll gamble on it...

EDIT: The most recent information/ads I can find on-line date to 2010. Could there be a reason for this? Maybe they break in two pretty quickly?

The Youtube vids I did find of a trials rider playing on one made them look like a lot of fun.

I need to break down and get some studs for my tires. That is a pig to wrestle around but not wanting to hurt the 4fiddy since I have a deposit on it.

I managed to sneak out for a bit again yesterday for a ride to the shop and back. Of course, I got detoured by a trail or two along the way

Happy New Year
Well i actually did have to walj uphill to and from school back on the second grade when I lives in Pekin,Illinois. the ct70s were not available to us then as we were.poor and the dealerships werent anywhere close. There was a proving ground forest near by we could have rode i if we did have ond but we have to surfice to bmx bikes then. i guess thats when i got into bmx. There was even a.little small town bmx track other neighborhood kids built that i would participate in. we were not allowd dto follow the 2nd amendement then cause we were only 5-10yrs of agr and obama wasnt even i. the picture with his government handouta. my first bmw bike wS murry but i snapped it in half and got.a huffy that i ended up bending the cheap chinese rims on. i ended up combing the two bikes and had a decent machine until i moved to indianpolis jn the 3rd grade and was introduced to dyno vfrs and.finally got a neon peon yellow one for christmas one year. was on the heavier side of the market but most bikes were then as alhminum bikes were expensive and not to affordable in those days. i rode it for years before graduation to a fatboy specialized. was also a bit.on the heavier side as it was built by a mountain bike company but was a hell of a bmw bike. j won quite a few races on it at the veledrome when it was an aba track but then santioned to nbl. we had a woods behind our house. i then started getting motorcycles for the woods my first being a z50. i was riding thr crap out of that thing. kept bendjng fork and having to bend them back. the owner of the woods lived out of state and didnt car if people rode j them but then he sold it to a family that turned jt into a park called the williams brother park and sold it to brownsburg. they actually came over one day and threatened to sue us for the ruts in there field until my 13yr old self proved to them my honda z50 couldnt attempt to make the ruts in the field that were obviously from big bikes. we tried tk.organize something to where we could keep riding i the woods but it was money against everyone else and they started pushing tresspasses. sothe williams brothers police were all over the place with there tenchonoly and im sure they had secret spied hiding in ligs out in the woods tonprevent us from riding. i guess the.point of this story is to not have a joint and continue to jihnson's assholeness and it takes up time from me being able to make routes for everyone which i e learned if i did thT and people followdd me.on it they will crash. ive had that happen 2 times when ive been out riding. i feel maybe they couldnt keep up but then theres always possibility they were in a "zone" and not watching and assessing as they rode as they should be. i guess ghats easy to when your taking in the scenery. there is all kinda of grammatical errors on this post but im doing it from my cell phone because the man is holding me down and working. somekne has to take care of all the obama employees. speaking of them one went into a tire place robbed it and then fired 2 rounds into the garage to intimidate but i his a mechanic. i felt bad for the guy. he then robbed one of the customers of his wallet. the owner said that he usually carries his gun but jusg didnt today. another reason why i always carry although its not for everyone.
