Yep, but not as cool as installing your own kick-start.

It's also hard to run and jump when you're in 6 inches of mud.

Under ideal conditions, sit on the seat and paddle with your feet twice, and then pop it in 2nd, and if you have the speed, and not super loose gravel, and an engine that wants to start anyway. you have fire. If not do it again under less ideal condtions (oh this time turn on the juice - i.e. the kill switch should not be depressed. Tom
