just find a nice stock one for friends to ride... theyre good to have around too
couldnt agee more:LEARN to fall. do it.
i hit a pot hole crossing a railroad track during the pittsburgh rally... i ate shit immediately. hobbit went down, and i rolled out a few feet ahead of it, stood up, someone pulled the plug wire on the hobbit, i scramble back to the downed moped, plug in the wire then ride away apparently pretty fucking quickly...but i've spent way too much time downhill mountain biking and flatland growing up
so i ate shit. no padding, just a chrome bag, rain poncho and hoodie. hurt for a week afterwards but everythings in tact.
learn to fall, then learn how to ditch your ped... i find the biggest problem is the emotional attachment
