    Please note that I am not affiliated in any way with the sites I am about to mention. I am doing this for archive and search purposes for those seeking info regarding these little motorcycles. (Took me awhile to find decent sites)


    Should you currently own or are looking to purchase a pocketbike or mini-moto check out these sites:
    www.pocketbikeplanet.com and www.cagarmy.com

    They have a wealth of info regarding said products.

    I bought one about 3 weeks ago and I'm hooked. My wife doesn't quite understand but my kids do. [​IMG]

    So stay safe, keep them off the street and have fun!

    Yes, stay off the streets when riding these little faux "motorcycles." They're really minibikes in a new incarnation.

    Anyone remember that Yamaha established this format back in the late '80s — with 50cc two-stroke engines enshrouded in tiny bodywork designed to mimick its Formula 500cc roadracers of the day?

    i used to have/race ysr-50s... =)

    pocketbikes are a little too small for "serious" fun. although we did manage to organize some pocketbike racing.

    these are more for "real-sized" people:

    scroll all the way down to the nsr50 and "dream 50".

    pocketbikes look fun, in the winter they organize indoor races, but I'm afraid I'm just too big and lanky to fit on one.
