Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Pocket Bike

Pocket Bike: I seem to be inundated with stories about pocket bikes or mini-bikes that are starting to appear everywhere across the USA. These are extremely small bikes that look like miniature sportbikes, have engines under 50cc and sell for prices as low as $200. eBay is loaded with such vehicles. I first saw these at Americade a few years ago ridden down Canada Street by regular motorcyclists. Now, the bikes are getting in the hands of the masses and used on sidewalks and city streets mainly by young people. Pocket bikes are quite low to the ground and can barely be seen by motorists. Although laws are sparse regulating the bikes, local law enforcement officials are clamping down on their use. My advice to you is to watch out for these vehicles. Fortunately, they can usually be heard even if they can't be seen.
