    I've got a Ruckus 50cc and a Kawasaki Z125, both are tons of fun. Anyone else have baby bikes?

    A few guys at Appalachian state have Groms. I would drive one around town just for fuel economy and ease of parking but the guys around Boone drive like asshats.

    All drivers drive like asshats. I ride far more than I drive, so I guess I'm just used to it.

    My klr and I are not into asshattery as most dual sporters. But then again what is asshattery? Its all relative. The "Boone Goons" are giving us a bad name. And yes most people are asshats.

    I had a crf230m sumo. Lots of fun, but under powered. Couple years later I got a 250l. Much better.

    My KLR had a Velorex sidecar. That was a blast. I'll have another sidecar some day.

    Hell yeah, I want a sidecar so my pup can ride with me. Really the only way I'll pull tail ever, with or without a side car.

    Here's a picture of my wife sitting on my 1966 Honda S90 (Benly 90). I'm not sure I'd call it my baby bike, but compared to my 1000cc Sport bike, it seems tiny.
