Re: Any love for gopeds?

^ I had a grin when I read that too.

I have tried to befriend the crazy boys in neighborhoods where I’ve lived. Because I used to be one.

I’d fix their shit. Let them tear up my yard on go karts. Just ask them to clean up brush and put it in the fire pit so I could still mow after one of their dirt clod wars.

That tiny bit of concession. One night, some kids went through the neighborhood shooting windows in cars with BB guns. Everyone got hit but me.

Keep your friends close, enemies closer sort of thing.

I rode a go-ped one time. That was enough for me. Not too scary. Just felt meh. I’m not lazy. But if there are two movie theaters, one with seats and the other you stand up, I’m gonna pick the one with seats.

Jack MT Goatheads MPC /

Had a goped age 12-15 used to ride to skate spots and shred it all over town. Got in trouble trying to sneak it into my locker at school. Hit trolly tracks wrong and face planted HARD! Looked like I was wearing shaded purple and yellow eye makeup for a few weeks once the swelling stopped.

Had billet wheels and the tires had flat spots and the front brake only worked once then you had to re align it so just didn’t use it (middle school tech).

Put battery powered Xmas lights under the deck for that under glow that was hot as fuck at the time ( talking Fast and Furious 1 in the theater still) also so i wouldn’t get killed at night.

Successfully out ran the police 3 times.

Got stolen from my house and is probably dead in a garage somewhere in Philly.

Good times and instantly hooked on mopeds once I discovered them!

Re: Any love for gopeds?

Me and a friend fixed up one of those plastic bodied sitdowns, took it to the skatepark after test riding it. Took it in the bowls and was doing burnouts with it. With out the key, we jump started it off his girlfriends car. Not something I want to take a turn with at high speed. He ended up just giving it and the parts to some kid.

Re: Any love for gopeds?

Took it out for a spin yesterday after work. It was sketch as hell but fun and damn this thing guzzles gas. It does like 6 miles per tank ( about a quart)

Re: Any love for gopeds?

In the dirt?!? MPG does not matter, if you go six miles on a go-ped, you need your head examined! Lol! ;)

Re: Any love for gopeds?

I rode a terrifyingly fast one around on a roof of a warehouse in Los Angeles after getting much too drunk once. I almost fell through a skylight. It was exhilarating.

Re: Any love for gopeds?

Ok first off if you talk shit about Gopeds you're an old fart and probably should just die already.

I have a bunch and rip dicks all over the east bay hills. I'll be setting up a Goped only ride event soon. It's gonna rule. No fucking loser mopeds allowed

My 10 yo daughter wont ride a bike for anything. But she will ride the hell out of her scooter. Maybe when I get my moped runnin and she wants to tag along, maybe I will buy one of these for her.

Then buy a hi performance death goped for the wife....

Re: Any love for gopeds?

Yeah hurt your wife wtf

Re: Any love for gopeds?

I would never hurt her. Just give her somethin with a bit more kick... for hills! Very steep kind we have around here

Re: Any love for gopeds?

I wish I could find that video of the foriegn kid building a mid engine, shaft drive goped.

Re: Any love for gopeds?

Just picked up a pretty much stock bigfoot locally for $50 yesterday. Got a few parts coming in and gonna clean the carb but once I get it all set I'll post some pictures. Never had one before but it seems like a good start with the pneumatic tires, especially with our frost heaves and dirt roads.

Never ridden one before, not sure if I should be excited or terrified.

♣Slew Foot♣ /

These are why I can't ride a heavy bike.

Lost my knee in 88... Pothole blind corner 39ish...

Hey kid!

U'll blow yer knee out...

Re: Any love for gopeds?

I had pulled one out of the trash a few years back they threw it away because the pull start broke off. Lucky me I reliZed it was direct drive and it started right up. It was a lot of fun and man could that little thing move it was quick. Esp with my fat ass on it

Re: Any love for gopeds?

I will say that pretty much all of my accidents where I have hurt myself have been on a Goped.

But fuck it.

They’re awesome and fun.

It’s like flying.
