Since it is now dark at 5:00 I find myself wandering around the net looking for fun stuff.  This is in Italian but I kind of like the commentary nonetheless.

When the lake finally freezes over you can start doing this.

I don't follow Speedway but the predominant motors are/were by MZ, and Kawa from E. Germany & Czechoslovakia. I had a 250cc MZ motorcycle and they are indestructible!

Well, thatís certainly different.  Almost fun.  Hard to believe those little scoots can do that.  I suspect they are highly modified, though.

Never had an MZ, made in E. Germany, I believe, but I did have one of those Czech horrors, a 350 Jawa.  Terrible motorcycle, to put it mildly.  It was a street bike that they took 2, 175cc singles and mated them on a common crank.  Horrible design, but it was their way of getting into the U.S. streetbike scene in the late ‘60’s.  It’s what I learned to ride on.  Seat was a piece of thick plywood with kapok filling covered with a hard vinyl seat cover.  Makes me want to scream just thinking about it.

If it has a motor, guys will figure out how to race it. We used to play moto-polo on a frozen field. I had a lot of fun until I fractured my skull. Fortunately, it was just a hairline fracture and concussion.

Well, apply most of that to the old MZs but that 2stroke motor just kept on keeping on!
