Ran that thing everywhere around the hills of blacksburg va. FUN!! I've sort of shopped for another one, but would like to get about 150cc.

I later had a bigger bike, but it was no where near as fun as that 100.
My uncle used to have a pair of Honda Trail 70s (IIRC) that was a blast to drive...I think there is somewhat of a cult following for those bikes now. I looked at trying to pick one up a few years back to tool around at the farm and in parents' neighborhood, but never could find one for a good enough price.
