Alan, I own a cheap($150, new) GoPed, I have had it for 2 years now and NEVER fucking crashed! Mine goes a hell of a lot faster than an '83 puch toptank, and my kinetic! (I raced, and won both races, on a fucking little scooter)! A GoPed is NOT like a skateboard AT ALL!!!!!!! It has 2 wheels, not 4! it has handlebars, and a BIG weedwhacker motor (26cc, not 21cc!) the top speed is around 32Mph (Mine has a chain, not one of those gay-ass spindles) and has air tires, not solid rubber! GOPEDS ROCK! Oh, and I have an x-can on it with a 2' pipe on the back! HELL YEAH! The thing sounds like a 70cc
kawasaki comin' down the hill! (The 2' gold chromed pipe adds a good echo and alot of base to the sound). I also retro-fitted the standard forks with runt-bike forks with SHOX! I'll post some pics tomorrow maybe! GOPEDS BEAT THE LIVING FUCK UOTA MOPEDS, when it comes to coolness!
