    so there were all these fireworks going off at the memorial park at around 10pm tonight and i rode my MB up there to watch, well the road was lined with every person from a 5km radius and they were all watching the fireworks with lawn chairs etc.. so i rode past them and they all cheered as i pulled up next to a mail box to watch the show, i sat for a half hour until the fireworks were done then i went to make a grand exit by riding past the hole crowd, well what i didnt notice was my fuel line had come off the carbrator and was leeking fuel for the last half hour, soaking the pedals,chain, and the entire frame. so i start to pedal past the crowd and i noticed the bike wasnt starting it was just cranking, so i pedald harder and faster standing up with all my might trying to get the darn thing started, i got to about 20kph in the middle of the crowd when my foot slipped off the gas soaked pedal and i sacked myself on the frame and went down, right there in front of the whole town!!!! i got up and squeekily said i was fine and i noticed the fuel hose, i plugged it back in and rode off down the road. got it running and did a 50kph run past the whole crowd(still in severe ball pain:sweatdrop:) and they cheered and yelled"go motor bike kid gooooo!!!" so i lost my pride and about a liter of gas(maybe my ability to reproduce) but all in all it was ok. the moral is dont try to show off to a crowd because it will kick you in the nuts,, literally,

    mini zip ties would prevent you from having the same issue in the future.

    little THINGS blowing up down in the leg area
    could have looked like big fire works

    I hate that when people say

    Funny story.

    This reminds me of when I was 16 and had an 89 camaro. My friend was next to me on his bike and I revved my engine.... REALLY high... past red line and the valves floated and black smoke started billowing out the exhaust and the engine died. I freaked out and thought I killed the engine. Luckily after it rested it was good as new.

    When you are showing off and FAIL it is much more embarassing.

    you caught that -- advertisement for cups

    yes -- you are right bootlegger -- I do promote the use of cups
    when I was around 10 ??
    front wheel of my bicycle slipped into the edgeing strip next to a sidewalk
    man those THINGS got smashed !!
    there was even some blood !!
    got home late and hurting
    mom was so mad at me for being late
    I didn't even tell her my THINGS had been smashed
    next day she came and pulled me out of school
    showed me my under wear ((bloody)) and asked -- what's going on here
    simple mom -- my THINGS got smashed while riding my bicycle
    and I should have been wearing my baseball cup !!!!

    this is another from up top the mountain -- true story -- MM
