    All you need is a helmet, 100 mph impact rated life jacket
    and pass their safety inspection ( kill switch working, etc)
    and your good to go

    Is the cable steering going to be a problem?

    Looking forward to it! Emilsr, unless you just want to buy a 5-700 jacket... there are some legal ones available for under 100 bucks. Mustang makes one...

    ... but I know I'm a Hillbilly!

    It was a challange but well worth it to be able to work all winter in my lil ol garage in a t shirt.

    Now I gotta figure out how to get it out soon.

    Just do it, like JT said, it is a lot of fun being a wanna be for a day or two.

    I just signed up and paid my fee for 2 runs. Helmet is at the ready but I still need to get a proper PFD.

    Hopefully I can at least break through the 60mph "barrier". In the immortal words of Alan Shepherd: "Please God don't let me f-up."
