Skadamo! What did you do to me???
« Reply #20 on: November 23, 2004, 05:24:37 AM »

have you ridden that 250 before?  I've always wanted to ride a 2 stroke road bike.  I'm sure its a fun bike.  Do you ride tracks a lot?

I never even had a chance to see RS250. Not many people have this bike. I never rode 2 stroke, either.
 
  But I have this feeling that I'll just love it. I heard so many good(fun) things about it.

  I never gone out to track, yet. I wanted to, but by the time when I was in Korea, we didn't have a single track. I think they even have some race going on now. I would love to fix and take my bike out to track next Spring. That'll be so much fun.
 
  When I was younger, I used to ride real crazy. I mean REAL crazy. I don't even know how I manage to live this long. I did all sorts of stuff that I will never, ever do it again. I used to street race all the time(half the time weren't really my choice. Minute guys figure that I was a girl, they started chasing me and I was just running away.  I even had police chases. I got away most the time, but once I was arrested and stayed at jail for 5 hours at the police station. Ha, ha..... 8-[

  Now, I ride real conservative. First of all, I don't have health insurance to take care of myself. Second of all, if something goes wrong I don't have money to fix up my bike.

  I'm just happy to be on a bike again, don't really care much of other things. Also, still learning about my bike. I had 7 years of break that totally got me rusted. I'm not even close to where I was when I was riding my zxr.

Whooa, sounds like you were luckier than I was to make it out of your youth! :nod:   I'm sure the guys were impressed.  I was fortunate enough to not be able to afford a fast bike until I was out of college or else I probably would have been in trouble too.  Do you think if there were more race tracks with easier access you would have taken it easy on the streets a little more?  It would be nice to see that option for people.  I am happy to see people racing those pocket bikes in parking lots.  Cheap, safer adrenaline rush.   :thumb:

I still would've raced
« Reply #23 on: November 23, 2004, 07:24:50 PM »

In my early 20's, I was crazy about moto GP. Kevin schwartz, Wayne Rainey
and Mick Doohan were my heros. I had a friend in NYC. He sent me all these motorcycle magazines and I would flipping over dictionary to read the articles. It took me 20-30 minutes to find out who won Monte Carlo, but I was just happy to get any info about this amazing world.

   I wanted to race so bad. I wanted to race for a few years while I was young and in shape. But there wasn't any race or track in Korea. Motor sports were literally nothing in early 1990's in Korea. There wasn't any internet, so I had to struggle to get any info about GP.

   Here in the US, there are so many resources when it comes to motorcycle. Magazines, movies, websites, clubs, tracks, tv, cable..... I wish I had this environment when I was young. My life would've been very different.

   From buying all these bikes, I always had money problems. I had debts to my credit card companies, I couldn't spend any money on anything. I was eatting ramen like my diet! It was sad.

   I don't know much about poket bikes. There aren't many in Houston. At least I haven't seen many.

mmmm...ramen. 8-[   Definitely good to live in the US if you like bikes...except for the fact that the US does not get a lot of good models that go to Europe. #-o  ...like the comet 650!  Hopefully that one will change soon.

Here is a link to a site that discusses pocket bikes...

Yeah, its been kinda quiet without you.  We got a few more registered guests though. :nod:   thanksgiving was good...Friends Family and Food.  My squeeze cooked a turkey and it was delicious.  I've been checking out svrider too.  

So when you going to Deals Gap?  My brother, my dad and I went down there this fall.  unfortunately my sv broke down when we got there.  The front carb had some problems and it leaked into the front cylindar and then into the crank case.  Never rode Deals gap.  had to haul it back.  ](*,)  It was like a bad dream.  We did some hiking instead which was fun.

We'll be back this summer for another try :thumb:   Beautiful scenery and awsome roads.
