    I'm sure you had the safety of Gary's family in mind when you decided to call him a Moron.

    The "small child" is a teenager, if im not mistaken.

    I do not believe he was a moron. I let my 7 year old drive a 90cc honda quad at full speed( I believe in 4th gear capable of 35 mph or so). She respects the vehicle, but Im not going to shelter her.

    And I have driven my 3 year old son on the bigger quads through the woodland trails.

    Small child? LOL I'm sure Gary would agree his boys are not small children.

    And I'm actually a little confused, wasn't Gary in the go cart alone I didn't realize his son was in it with him I thought the son gave him instructions before he took off and barrel rolled it.

    Guess I need to pay more attention.

    The story I heard was that Gary took the drugs before he jumped in the go cart. And he was rolled over by a Rhinoceros. Its right there on page..... ummm.. way back up the thread.

    I thought Gary was run over by a rhinocerous driving a go cart. I was unclear whether the rhinocerous or Gary was on drugs.

    Perhaps before getting into the go-kart he took a puff off of wingy's patriotic jumbo and was driving under the influence (?)

    Thank goodness he remained conscious and was able to send his son for a camera and ambulance. Without pics this story just wouldn’t be the same.

    Bit late for you to try to claim the high road, don't you think?

    Posts like the one I quoted are simple trolling. Not even a good troll. Fail.

    Now, this is something I'm waiting to hear about. Who's right? If you can't spell the name of your own town, then you should have no opinion on other's actions. I'm waiting to hear the outcome on this one. Eating popcorn.

    Probably one of the most assinine juxtapositions I've ever heard. What does the mispelling of a word have to do with discerning right from wrong? Beyond stupidity, but not unexpected.

    Sorry, can't make any sense out of that comment either.

    juxtaposition:
    Pronunciation: \ˌjək-stə-pə-ˈzi-shən\ Function: noun Etymology: Latin juxta near + English position: the act or an instance of placing two or more things side by side ; also : the state of being so placed
    — jux·ta·po·si·tion·al [​IMG] \-ˈzish-nəl, -ˈzi-shə-nəl\ adjective

    BTW that's asinine with one "s."

    You should really try to get an education somewhere other than CSR so people can understand you and so your opinion is made in a way that it does not cause insult.

    Thoughts like this are why the country has gotten really lame in the past 10 years. Somtimes fun involves the risk of getting hurt, Even if it was dumb to turn full tilt at speed. (Gary, i'm not making fun of you, the list of my "Dumb moves" is quite long.)
    This is my Go Cart. Note the "Chopper Style" exhaust. Mufflers Suck!!!

    Here are my sons on it.

    We love the thing.
    As for the Me the "Moron", My oldest Sean (11 years) drive it by himself on my track here at home and under my supervioion on the culdusac acrross the street from us. Mathew (5 Years) and I drive it with him sitting on my left lap. We hit the Culdusac (Can't spell) at full speed. about 20 mph. and enter the cricle on the left. this is to keep the drive wheel on the outside of the turn. Mathew is on my left to keep the CGs to the right. I'm 230 lbs. This may seem backwards, but when we lean there is no room for him on the right. I cut a quick left to enter the circle and make the long right turn leaving about 5-6 feet between the edge of the pavement and the cart. Matt and I lean hard right and I "drift" the cart the whole lenght of the circle and speed down the road. It slipps on the little stones that build up on the pavement. I then turn around and do it again. Somtimes we will try to go round and round like the "traffic cricle" scene from the Dukes of Hazzard movie! Much fun.
    Now I have had it up on two wheels before but not high enough to tip over. The carts are pretty narrow and the presence of the rollcage on the larger ones just add to the problem of rolling over.
    Now I'm sure I'll be called a moron too. "F" it!!
    Keep on go carting!!! Morons Unite!!!
    Get well soon bro!

    Nice. Brings back good memories. I had one of those. It ate up tires and clutches. I learned how to drive on one of those and credit the machine to the development of my cat like driving reflexes and professional vehicle control. My kids are getting one for sure.
