Parents are starting to wonder what I want for christmas, and I am considering a few things. Here are my options...

50cc moto. (Have wanted one for a while to tool around on, get around town... Have never had anything motorized so it really appeals. And no I will not be trashing any DJ's with it...) Its relatively cheap.

New Gear- 5050xx pedals, 5.10 shoes, TLD shorts/shirt (Plus extra shizzle...)

Rock Shox Pike/chopped 36 van to 80mm + some gear- I need a new fork for my HT, Not feelin the DJ1. But the other two are very appealing...

WWJD?

dont get the 50cc, it is dumb and will become useless. your very tall and it is very uncomfortable to sit on one. Plus you will probally end up pissing of people and it will get taken away. Get the fork!

Yet I can still fit fine... It wont get taken away. It will be too fast. :D

Instead due to my connections i may get a chopped 36 rather than the pike...

36 van isn't really that much of an improvement weight wise, mabye a couple of pounds (i think)..... get the pike, or a sherman jumper.50's are stupid. get a motox bike.

get a pike, you will like it, a 50cc will be fun but you will get tired of it, and some old lady will call the cops on you if you ride on the road alot.

Go with the fork.
The 50 is stupid, if your that tall you'll throw about 1800.00 into it. You will go with taller bars, then a rear shock, front forks, big bore, carburetor, Dont wast your money!

The only thing i would do is bmx bars. Im 6'.

JJ, the 36 is a huge improvement. The DJ1 is 8#s, the 36 is sub 6. And its MUCH shorter and I will actually get more than 1.5 inches of travel...
