Re: whats your scaryist moment on a pb

2 years ago I got my first poccketbike. I was on a small drive way and there was a truck that was out like to the the middle of the road. I was going to make a turn and I thought motorcycles were like bikes. So I tried to turn
and I crashed into the back of the truck.

I know this is off topic, but speaking of no one finding out, today as it was getting dark I decided to burn a brochure I got from Polaris in the mail. I don't like them that much since almost all of their ATVs have CVTs, which I think are retarded and for newbs who don't know how to shift, and I think they kind of started the whole CVT deal because now most of the ATVs from every ATV manufacturer have CVTs.

Anyway, I decided to burn the brochure out of hatred of the company. I had a little over a gallon of old gas with two-stroke oil and dirt in it, so I dumped a little on the brochure. Well as it kept going out and the brochure wasn't fully burned I kept dumping a little more. I probably did it about five times and knew I was pushing my luck. Well, finally I dumped some over it and didn't yank it back in time so the flame traveled up the stream of gas and lit the tip of the can on fire.

Now the smart time would be to get away from the fire and pat out the fire on the tip of the nozzle. Well, you know how it is when you just get nervous and don't know what to do, so I threw it a few feet away and it turned into a pretty big blaze within a few seconds. I yanked the gas tank out thinking I was just going to let it die down. "BUZZZ"-Wrong, for a second it seemed like that'd be the case, but then it's like the fire made a connection and it shot out a few feet towards me in a line about a two or three feet wide, so I threw the tank back out into the fire, I don't know why, but on impulse. This was under my probably 9 or 10 foot tall deck where the ground is covered in a layer of pebbles and rocks, no grass (THANK THE LORD!!!).

I stood for what felt like minutes, watching the gas slowly but steadily flow out of the nozzle in the middle of the fire, yet each minute was a second, then ran and pulled the trash bag out of our big outdoor trash-can and filled it up a little with water which I then ran over and dumped on the fire. BIG mistake, for a second it sizzled then it got bigger, I think because some of the gas that had been in the pebbles floated to the top of the water. Well, I ran back and did it one or two more times, with no success.
Then I realized what an idiot I was. I was standing on a layer of rocks.

I ran and got the shovel and started shoveling rocks over the fire until eventually I thought I got it out. I went to fill up the trash can with a little bit of water to come dump on it and when I came back a few spots of fire were back, so I dumped water on it and shoveled some rocks onto the spots andthen I got it back out for good, but went to get more water just to be on the safe side.

After a few minutes I lifted the gas tank up and a little bit of some type of steam/smoke mixture was still coming out of the large hole in the side, so I put it down and picked it up with the shovel and put it off to the side of the pebbles while I flatted the pebbles back out again with a rake and covered up where I had burned the brochure.

After I finished that, I went over and picked it back up again and threw it into the bushes between the my house and my neighbors' house, except it's really just dead, leafless bushes and the living ones covering a few spots. I covered the tank, still with about 1/3 of a tank of fuel with a 1/3 tank-full of rocks in it. I'm glad the other 1/3 of the fuel didn't burn . I covered up the tank with leaves.

I'm going to go get the tank tomorrow morning and throw it out in the back corner of my neighbors yard where four houses, including mine, meet. There are a TON of vines back there and a few pieces of junk back there, some the neighbors' behind my next-door neighbors' yard, as there's a gap in their corner where you can walk through to their house.

I wish the tank hadn't burned because my friend and I like to use the dirty, useless gas in it to burn things, and that was my only spare tank that I only used for bad fuel. Maybe I'll just go to a hardware store and buy a 5-gallon plastic-can with a lid to put all of my old, dirty fluids in. I do have a little magarita mix bucket for old fuel, but all that's in there is motor oil with a little bit of a 2-stroke mixture in it, so that probably won't burn that great . Oh well!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that my mom was upstairs in the third floor (if you count the basement, which I was out side of; at the front of the house the second floor is the "first" floor as our yard is a slight hill. Luckily she was still taking a nap, but I think she got up sometime when I was finishing cleaning up outside, but she didn't know!

Re: whats your scaryist moment on a pb

my scariest moment was when me and a couple of my friends got permission from a school to use thier parking lot as a track. we blocked off the entrance and exit and took a couple warmup laps. i had just gotten my cag modded with alot of parts and i hadnt opened it all the way up yet but we also had a money pot going on so i was willing to push it to the limit even tho when my bike was stock i could already smoke everyone else.... so about 4 laps into the 15 lap race i had my best friend right on my butt so i decided to c what my bike could do on a straight away punched it and was coming up on the next turn wayyyyyy wayyy wayyyyy tooo fast went to hit the brakes and the bike kept going! need i remind u that my bike is almost topped out at around 45-50 mph! and the turn just happend to have a curb and about 1 1/2 ft. behind the curb was a brick wall...... so class can anyone say BAIL? luckily i was wearing ALL! of my gear (full leather daniese suit, frank thomas leather racing boots, carbon fiber knuckle gloves, 60 degree wrist guards , hjc d.o.t. approved helmet) so the bail didnt hurt that much what hurt is when my friends plowed right into me!!!!!!! but that was just part of it! i couldnt feel my legs!! i was terrified! and i kept telling my self that there was no way this could have happened to me! but luckily i found out that i jus landed kinda weird and hit my tail bone and my legs were jus numb.... that was realllllyyyy freaky! so basicly the gear kinda saved my @$$ from havin a nice hole in my pants and a few tire marks across my back... but the gear has saved me a bunch of times from really hurting myself.... THANKS Daniese, Frank Thomas, the makers of the gloves and wrist protecters(i dont know what company for sure) and H.J.C.!!!!!!

Ouch, that's one of the worst I've heard so far!

P.S. You were probably doing about 35, MAYBE 40, as I don't think there's a Cag in this world that can reach 50 mph, unless it's gearing is high and it has most, if not all, the mods available. Sorry to flame you, but it just gets on my nerves when everyone thinks they're doing 50 mph on a $200-$300 Chinese pocketbike, I don't think there are even very many 110cc midbikes that can go faster than 50 mph.

Okay, most average riders don't have mods like that. You'd barely be able to reach 40 without the 10hp engine, but yes, that's very close, if not, fuly modded!

Re: whats your scaryist moment on a pb

my worst was today...... just put my brakes, and rims on from painting them, and i decided i would take her for a spin. I pulled out of m driveway all proud and stuff, and went about half throttle and was like "whoa shes accelerating pretty hard?" so i gave it full throttle and i guess i hit a little bump in the road but it made me pop a wheelie so i let off the gas and my front tire was still like jumping araound and stuff and eventually i was laying on my bike and then some where in the wreck i fell off. My first one was i lost it in some grass and i got a 2nd degree burn surrounded by a 1st degree burn.
