Mini-bike in the National Park

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Ljiljan, Nov 20, 2010.

  1. So this morning on a short ride through the RNP, I come across an unusual sight. It was about 3' high, 1.5' wide with a single headlight. As it passes me, it takes form as a rider, dressed in full leathers, crouched upon a pocket bike. He wasn't hanging around either, doing about 60-70k's. Not sure how he would have cornered, it looked like he had about 20 degrees with which to lean before things started to hit ground zero.

    I didn't know whether to laugh at him or applaud.

  3. Quite a few of the big boys have some of these fully tapped. Absolutely awsome. Fun and games out the back of the paddock.

  6. Not if it's less than 50cc. And if it's greater then it'd need to be registered and adhere to ADRs?

  7. Probably has worked out , that at the 3' height he literally is flying under the radar

  8. there is a model of mini-motard that you can register, i think its called a Motovert RX. i nearly bought one, just for the lols. they come in a 50cc and 125cc model but they are a china build.

    would be hilarious to get the reaction from cagers when they see that its on the road, or they probably wouldnt see you as per usual.

    imagine the police reaction. haha.

  9. The police would be really unimpressed and you would be lucky to not be out of pocket $$$$ in fines.

    Edit: Sorry, I mean for the typical 49cc minimoto, not the registerable ones.

  11. Any pocket bike thats take "fuel" ,even 1 cc is not legal to ride any where on public roads etc.
    Even the 49cc small motors that you can put on a push bike.
    You get busted {if its not one of the ADR fully registered ones} for no licence ,no helmet ,no rego ,no insurance.
    Seen a fully worked and registerd Honda monkey bike in the nasho a few times.
