On Sunday, there was a moped run that was also a canned food drive that they donated to one of our local churches that feeds the needy.



I brought my Gorilla and my friend used my ruckus. I made it halfway through the run until my rear wheel bearings decided to go out. Thank goodness for one of my other friends on his chase truck.



I made a quick video of the run. The video is really shaky. I just got this video camera the day before to replace my mini dv camera, so I was still learning how to use it.

Didn't get to check out the vid yet since I'm at my in laws with their 56k(prehistoric!) but what exactly happens when the bearings go out?

Heard a noise, then the bike started to wobble. That is when I decided to pull to the side. My friend in the back of me said that once we got out of the pali, all of the sudden he seen the rear wheel started wobbling. Thank goodness for our chase truck, my baby got home safely.



It was my first time to take her for a long ride. It was going to be a 60 mile round trip ride, but I made it half way.



Just need to find some good quality bearings and I should be golden again.
