    What bout a motorized one? Heh a dirt bike.

    Here's how I do it.

    Firstly, wear helmet and gear. and if you're afraid to get the bike messed up, forget it.

    There's a 200cc dirt bike upstate where I go to. First of all, find a place with no cars, and no people. Secondly, put on some music you really like, and not classical, mind you, although, it would be pretty funny.

    Accel, and you have to be somewhat strong for this, and pull the front wheel up while slightly standing up, and meanwhile, during all this, gun the throttle! This should get you started, once the wheel gets up, you'll figure out what to do yourself, and how to position your body. As for the throttle, ease off on it, or you will flip.

    Good luck!

    Get your self set at a reasonable speed, pull up on the handles then hit the pedals as hard as you can at the same time. Haha, maybe you'll get some better advice if you post in Hardware...

    Ok step one: get an estes rocket kit
    Two: Duct tape rockets in orderly fasion to back of bike frame
    Three: Wire all rockets to launching device
    Four: get on bike
    Five: Have buddy hold launcher and make sure he knows how to use it.
    Six: Count down from ten till one
    Seven: Have buddy press launch button at one.
    Eight: Pull up onto handle bars and cry like a lil sissy saying you dont want to die.
    Nine: if you begin to float off the ground please refer to my guide on emergency atmosphere reentering techniques.
    Thank you

    Here is how I did it on a 125cc Honda bike, not dirtbike!

    It was done by accident aswell!!!!!!!!!

    I put my hand on the clutch, put my other hand on the accelerator, put in gear, let the clutch go too quickly and gave quite a bit of throttle, and off I went!

    Oooooooooh.

    Dude. Any chance you going to ride that?

    400cc is pretty really nice.

    The 200cc I use, it's somewhere around 200cc anyway, 4 stroke engine, Yamaha. The fastest I'v ever taken it was past 70MPH on a road, and that was pretty fine. The bike isn't mine, but I'm allowed to use it :) and yes, it's legal, since i dont have a lisence
