My son and his cousin were watching old McGrath videos, arguing the fact that in this video he was #1, and the when he retired he was #2...then they begged me..."Can you take us for a ride?" The weather was perfect. We'll just bang around the back yard. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? I put cousin Riley on first, and took him around the yard, noticing that he is now way too big to sit in front of me, so I pulled up next to my house, and told him to climb off and get on back. Bike in neutral, running. In what seemed to be an eternity, but probably was only 3 seconds, Riley managed to 1.) swing towards the right side of the bike to dismount 2.) bang it into first 3.) pull the throttle back about 90% on his way off the bike. I just heard the 600 rev way up, and BOOM, the nose went straight up, almost hitting the top of my pergola, then fell sideways. Neither of us were even scratched. We were both standing there, watching the bike launch into the stratosphere right in front of us. Scared the crap outta me. I am SO glad he didnt get hurt, and I am SO glad I make the kids wear their safety gear. Never know what is going to happen. 8 year old wrecked my bike, one foot from my house, at ZERO forward speed. What are the odds? Here's the pics, and the kids in the yellow is the Thumper Killer. My son is sitting in the black shirt. http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b210/slepe67/Riley-vs-6004.jpg http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b210/slepe67/Riley-vs-6003.jpg http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b210/slepe67/Riley-vs-6002.jpg http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b210/slepe67/Riley-vs-6001.jpg P.S.
