I'm not going to die, at worst I'll eat shit and get some real nasty road rash because outside of a helmet I don't have proper riding gear. Or maybe a broken bone or 2, but knock on wood because I've never broken anything. Besides would you even want the stuff of a guy who's buying a Klunker bike? You made it very clear how you feel about these bikes and made it sound like it's one of the poorest choices I could make for a bike. So I doubt you'd want my stuff because poor choices are right up my alley. And you are sensible and logical and other good quality things.
And all I'll be attempting is a skid out, and I probably won't even do more than once because I'm 200lbs and I'm sure they would destroy the tires in no time. And it's not I'ma go and do something crazy like try to jump the aqueduct thingy up the street. Well, that's unless the punk ass 12 year old bike gang kids call me out, then I'll have no choice but to have to show those lil fuckers how we did shit in the 80s! But I got a helmet at least, I doubt it's aqueduct jump rated, but it would be better than no protection.
There is a huge difference between doing that as a teenager and doing it as an older man. The survivability drops dramatically.
