Mini bike riders in city

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Kelvinc, Feb 17, 2011.

  1. Hi, I was near Goulburn St, Surry Hills and saw two riders on mini-motorbikes on Elizabeth Street.

    Could not see very well but definitely mini motorbikes and both riders had hi viz vests on.

    Does anyone know what these bikes are and why there were riding on the street? Is this a promotional event? Just curious.

    Thanks.

  3. Thanks for the reply. Did a search and the Motovert almost looks like my Husky supermotard.

    Sure looks funny to have an adult on a mini bike! It was too far to see what kind of bikes they were riding but still, not something I see everyday.

    I am easily amused as long as it is about motorbikes !

  8. Yes, that looks like it. Looks like a great idea. Tried to do a quote but it didn't work out that much cheaper than a taxi though !

  9. I don't think that it supposed to be cheaper than a taxi, it just saves having the car broken into when left at the pub and your time the next day to go get it.

  12. I saw this too! I broke down at the end of North St and they all went zooming by along the highway. Had the fuzz watching them fairly closely too by the look of it.
