Default use of extra set of grips...

When I bought my XR I ordered it with heated grips, which left me with the stock set. Had my brother make me a set of bars & risers for my tool cart at work, so I don't have to hunch over to push the damn thing. The throttle still spins!!

Do you make two stroke motor noises when you push your cart? Neat idea. I added comfort grips and have the stock grips laying on a garage shelf.

Nice mini apes!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hey Fishslapper, you are deprived. I use the same brand workcart as yours but I have the deluxe. It has a drink hole molded in that I use for coffee. Love your idea but can't do it where I work. Those carts must be made for 4'10" people!

yep, the engineers look at me real weird like as I run thru the gears, doing berm shots as I push the back end sideways!!

I have yet to get the little tricycle bell ringer for when peeps get in my way!!

Edited to add; I was thinking about this, & I must correct myself- not 2 stroke noises- most defiantly a thumper... dunno why, I always rode 2 stroke dirt bikes...ita a brrrrr brrrrrrrr, not a riiiingdidididing. so, thumper, yes?

they are unbelievably uncomfortable to push around. I had a custom aluminium coffee cup holder, but the parking lots I have to push this thru are to rough to allow any drink to stay unspilled...

That's funny! Okay, now you have to go all the way. How about flames down the 4" deep sides?

You know, I have never been into the whole flames / skulls thing- but I could do some aluminium flames down the skirts of this cart... I like that idea!!
