Hold on ... unless you can show enquiring minds your DJs, rock garden, and something with a bit of truly rural rhythm ... that ain't even close to being pseudo downhill. Bikes and body armour, we can see that stuff in K-Mart.

My neighbour Michael is into pseudo downhill.

... and in this neck of the bush the XC trails default to ... terminal velocity.

Those pics scare me.

We have enough trouble in our trail advocacy efforts with rabid ideological greenies trying to keep mtbs locked out of the bush becasue they keep confusing us with motos, without them actually being motos.

Those who fight for your trail access WILL NOT thank you for this. It is a Bad Idea.

Note the caps => Bad Idea.

Keep it on the farm and off the trails... please. You've no doubt heard teh phrase "don't bet the farm"... well, if you ever hit someone with one of these unregistered motorbikes, you will have bet the farm, and lost. And probably have set back advocacy efforts several years once it gets into the tabloid papers.

Clearly not you, seeing you seem to need to be so selfish. Those who are truly rich are able to balance their desires with the greater good.

In case you missed the point...

THIS DOES NOT HELP THOSE WHO WORK ON YOUR BEHALF TO IMPROVE TRAIL ACCESS.

Get a moto and ride moto trails if you're that desperate.

Man, I love this thread.

Oh let me count the ways.

Is it possible, that it be more obvious, that these photos are from private propperty?

Hilarious.

So long as it stays on private property, farm or not, not a problem.

But is it possible, could it be more obvious, that they never do?

As for the photos... yawn. Pedal, ya lazy git. Or find a motorbike forum. :lol:

If a motorized MTB roosted through a MTB park at 2am, and there was nobody around to hear it.

Would it make a noise?

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the park
The sound of a mountain bike two stroke bark
The throttles were open and the clutch was dropped
No one could catch them, not even a cop.

Oh come on, fenders? Goddam it, what are you old biddies scared of, the mud up the back of shirt or yo momma who has to wash it? :wink:

Can't say I'm a fan of motorised bikes but if you guys get a kick out of it, then that's cool. The jumps look like you guys are earning more frequent flyer points than a Japanese businessman.

Pretty boring future...give me my CR500 back anyday...if you are going to have power you might as well have real power.
I bet they would be fun once or twice, but having some tinny little 50cc motor ringing in my ear would drive me nuts...I finished 80cc motox cross when I was like 10!.

All I have ringing in my ear is the sound of self important Nancys, that think the way they have fun on two wheels is far superior to the next persons 2 wheeled adventure?

This sounds like somebody with limited bike skills!

Maybe your time would be better spent checking that your chain ring bolts exactly match the colour of yor new titanium QR skewers.
