Dropping bolts like lightning...

When my daughter, Francine, was little I got her a Kawi trike. Put it on the floor with no wheels. We'd play clutch hand/throttle hand. She's kind of grown up with it. She's four now, and finally able to ride the thing. Took it out for it's first real ride today. ****ing thing dropped a bolt within 5 minutes. We loctited that son of a bitch. Go Kawi.

LOL. I'm working on a kid's book right now. That WOULD be a good one. Hmmm...
