Mini Bikes have become a very popular idea in the United States and a few other countries as well. Mini bikes are exciting and can help create fun for adults as well as children. Mini bikes often called pocket bikes are considered to be a miniature motorcycle often used with a 2 stroke engine to turn the rear. In the 1950s, these mini bikes were first used by drag racers in the pit for racing. Because they are so small, racers are able to maneuver them very well and storage was very easy, considering they could fit into tight spaces. Many people do not take the idea of having the proper bike accessories seriously because these bikes are so small and do not look as though they can cause enough damage to hurt someone, but that is so not true. Mini bikes vary in speed, but most are considered to run pretty fast. For instance, gasoline bikes can run anywhere in between 60 to 80 mph. These bikes require operation from users who are a little more skilled in using them. If one got into the wrong hands and they did not have the proper safety accessories, they could really do some serious damage to themselves and possibly others depending on where the bike is being rode. It is illegal to ride minibikes in the roads, but even so, they still can be dangerous if not handled the correct way.
