My Ride by XD-385 My Ride by XD-385
Yup. This is what I use to get around. And it's also the very contraption that almost got me killed last May. This is an American Chariot. The throttle is on the right handlebar while the brake is on the left. But if you guys decide to get one, I strongly advise you install a second brake handle on the right handlebar in case the primary brakes fail. It runs on electricity instead of gas and is powered by two batteries that are housed inside the frame. They need to be recharged now and then too.

Another thing worth mentioning is that it does not fare well in the cold. Freezing and low temperatures cause it to burn through its fuel much more quickly.

This is quite new too me. It's cool looking, what would be funny is too get a 2x4 and get cutouts of running armored horses and put them on somehow, like with a lot of ductape!

Sadly, these things are high-maintenance and surprisingly delicate. I ultimately had to get rid of it because after a rather lengthy time in the shop, it could no longer climb shallow hills. That, and the company behind them declared bankruptcy, so finding parts is difficult and costly. I just use a bike these days.

Same here, except this baby can't fall over unless I make a very tight turn at high speed.

Read this journal. [link]

That's why I advise a secondary brake.

Some things are a lot of fun that seam weird JUST because you don't normaly ee people do it. For instance, I like to put a couple little pretzels in my mouth and then fill my mouth with milk. It's pretty tasty!

You should've used chocolate milk to make it taste like Flipz pretzals.
