I can one-up you on that.

How's this for a Bump? I punched in, worked all day, called from my last stop, and was told, "Take your freight to PIE, and leave it there, trailer and all. We are out of business. Don't come in tomorrow."

And, no I didn't get paid. But, they did give me a $12,000 hand truck.

They weren't very good on the Bumps.













Though, really: Tires yes, but kid-sized motorcycles, no.

Like this one?




This is my son when he was 6 yrs old in 1986, the bike was a 1974 that I bought for him when he was 4.

Oh and at that time my buddy's kids had that (same one) mini trail 50.................him and I raced on them one day while we were riding with our kids..............the MR50 smoked the mini trail 50

In an unrelated side note: if you jump a Trail 90, you might not go over the handlebars, but you might think you are going to.







30 something Bump.

Trail 90,
Trail 110, in 2 versions,,

Two things:

1- "Not crashing" does not necessarily mean "not riding"- claims of non-crashers being only sightseers notwithstanding.

2- Apparently, you missed the "30 something" reference. The meaning, initially, my age at the time, and qwinkidinkillly, also the amount of time since.
