Nope, not coy at all. You guys just asked for dumb stunts and I told you my "jackass stunt" on the hopes that no one would be stupid enough to try it. Granted it is dumber and probably more dangerous that riding down stairs on a PED. But none the less I did own up to it.
No I am not the Harley Dirt Track Racer from IA. However, in my wilder days, I did ride a Norton and go watch the Isle of Man races in the UK once. I decided early on motorcyle racing was not for me. As I said, I am just an older guy who got back into mopeds as a diversion from depression (divorce after 15 yrs of marriage). Also, as an alturnative to driving to the commuter rail station. After enjoying the peds thru the summer, I finally got "De Fever" again (aka "Bike Fever") and recently bought a motorcycle ('71 Honda 750 Chopper), but my first love is still the 76 PUCH ped. My goal (aka Stunt) for next year is to enter and finish the Potomac Valley Vintage Motorcycle Club's Spring Poker Run on the Ped. Last year I entered got lost and ran out of gas. (See Post dated 04/23/01). This year I plan to carry a spare can of pre-mix and have better luck at reading directions.
