Just wondering 'cause I'd like to get a binch of us together, then have some non-owners have a play, try to convert some more.

I've got one, can probably get my hands on another (although it's not for beginners to ride)

So, put your hands up.

i own one, but live on hastings. Im always willing to let anyone have a thrash on it after the bucket meets in waipawa, or any other time if they ask. Any local to here want to have a go, just pm me. they are suprisingly fun!

no idea whatsoever. tops out at bout 80km, but you need to be pretty ballzy to ride it that fast. Just bought it as a toy then the missis started racin it while i race buckets

Yea, am a bit mad.. Just a tad. Sweet pocket rocket btw!

When I said mine does 200, I meant my RS. I can pick it up in the air and carry it around with me so I reckon it's a minimoto, well almost.

Yeah, the people that sell them reckon they'll do 80 kays. *cough bullshit cough*

The watercooled criters will do almost that, the aircooled ones, about 50, maybe 60 if you gear them right.

And for the record, anyone that reckons 50 kays is too slow, obviously hasn't ridden one.

yeah i got one , just an cheap one , will easily do over 50kph , i have also ridden the expensive polini ones capable of 80kph plus ,,, very scary but at the same time great fun , www.minimoto.co.nz , usually has a indoor ride up at silverdale go-cart track once a fortnight , and a race meet at mt wellington once a month or so ,, anyone wanting a go on mine quite welcome , leathers and helmet and gloves a must , i found out the hard way , ripping my new jeans , not to mention palms of my hands , arse , knees etc,,,,,,,

Yay! The other day bringing some non-minmoto'ers along must have been a success! Its now my mission to talk as many people into it as possible :) I have just yesterday ordered my Daytona 2 :D And my old man is buying one once ive let him have a turn on mine, 6chris6 is waiting to break mine then will get one, Shade will be buying one whether he likes it or not. not to mention 2x workmates who will inevitably become minimotoKB'ers

hahha! This crap is the funest stuff aorund, just grinning and laughing aobut how much fun it was.

So, put your hands up.Dear Mr Trash,

That is a capital idea, I would like to have a go on a minimoto.

Where do you live however? North of WellingTRON encapsulates most of the planet.

Minimoto's come in a range of models. The cheap ones designed for the kids that only cost a few hundred are the bottom of the range - I think they do between 2-6bhp. Then you have production which is 7.5bhp and supers which is unlimited power. The ones that cost about $3-7k produce between 12-15bhp depending on the size of the engine (sidecar units are fookin grunty) and go anywhere between 50cc and 110cc - they will easily do 90mph (about 140kph or so). But then what would you expect for an engine thats had the bejesus tuned out of it (always wondered about their reliability).

After minmoto comes midimoto (used to be called pocket bikes, but that now refers to both) - which is a class I would like to see them bring in here for the younguns and adults alike. From pocketbikes, you can go to either 125/250.

If you wanna see some of these bikes in action, come out to kaitoke kart track in wellington on the 20th of November. We will be racing on the end of the kart rounds. If you want to test ride a bike, talk to someone wearing a black t-shirt with 'Team Xtreme' on the sleave, It will be either myself (aaron), Greg or Jason
