Hi! just new on this hobby,got an X7 which have been in storage for a while make some cleaning and replacing some parts to make it run, but I do not know a place to test run. I do not know in our place if there are still anybody in this hobby and where they run their bike legally. I am from austin tx.

Yup! I ride it in the neighborhood once in a while , and there's a bunch of kid there that was surprised because when ever I go inside the garage and come out again I got a different color of the pocketbike. I use to run them all.:)

Nice, 3 cateyes head to head... That will be fun! Take off the kick stands... ;)

Have fun!!
those are x7's

Just ride threw ur neighborhood like a boss
Yep that's one of the reasons why these bikes got band!!!
Since you have 3 bikes you got to have atleast 2 friends that might wanna ride/race with you. Do your best to find a parkinglot. I don't know your neighbors but it only takes 1 of them to call the cops on you. The you can best believe your good times will be over.

Luckily my neighbors are not that pain in the ***, i just run it once in a while and not racing , just like cruisin and most of my neighbors give me a thumbs up. I know it not legal to run that in our neighborhood that is why most of the time they see it in our garage warming up only.

Until the old guy with hearing aids that lives across the street from you calls the cops for the noise. I was tuning my engine on my test/break in mount, they came and wrote me up a 318$ noise violation citation. I am currently waiting on a court date to contest the ticket, since they cannot give me a noise violation citation at 2 in the afternoon when there are 250 lawn mowers running within a 5 K/M radius.

Another time I decided to go for a Ride and they followed me home, told me I was under arrest for fleeing and evading. I was like, ***, you are driving a FING Crown Vic with a police pack motor and cant keep up with a 47cc chinese lawn mower engine?? Lets just say they looked a little cross-eyed and stupid... They clearly did not have any motive to arrest me, so they ended up just leaving...

What really makes me mad is Lance Armstrong & Levi Lepp, bring their friends on my 2 line road and ride 3 abreast. When you come up behind them, the act like your in their way. That's not sharing the Highway, which has 35 to 45 mph signs. They have no Lic. or Reg. or Insurance, so what is the big deal with small pocket bikes riding around the neighborhood??
