Revzilla: the official mini-bike road trip “Dumb And Dumber”, IRL
Don’t be fooled – despite what it sounds like, it takes a serious skill set (and a rock-solid keester) to survive a road bike trip… well, silly.
Following the general theme of the hit movie “Dumb and Dumber” (where Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels swap their van for a mini-bike to travel 382 miles), Revzilla’s Ari Henning and Zack Courts adapted and completed the actual trip. from the Nebraska apartment. prairies in Aspen, Colorado, with their machine of choice offering “A gallon tank of fuel, no suspension, tiny five-inch wheels, and a top speed of just 30 MPH.”
My ass hurts just thinking about it.
Correct see to the thing.
“Not only were the brakes zero” we are told by the report, “but the mini-bike forced its rider to become WOT, which is painful on your wrists.”
“He was also rich, shook so badly that the gas tank came off and gnawed at the tires of his lawn mower.”
The best part about this shenanigans (and we’re not talking about the jerky)?
The numbers touted by the movie were actually pretty close, believe it or not.
Here is what was noted by the pair’s logbook:
“In the end, we traveled 382 miles and burned seven gallons of gasoline; plus two and a half rear tires. In the main movie, Lloyd traded Harry’s van for the pig (straight ahead) and claimed to be able to get 70 mpg with the mini-bike.
“We had an average of 54, with what was probably a bigger engine and bad settings to start. Our most efficient tank was 62 mpg, so if you think the ‘back town kid’ did sorting out his jet at 5,000 feet above sea level, 70 mpg seems reasonable. “
