When turning North or South I no longer have to factor the Coriolus force into my counter steering.

Does the flat earth still spin?

I can adjust the headlight up a bit because i no longer have to consider the dropping horizon.

If I can ride far enough, I can go off the edge and into outer space!

Make sure your brakes are 100% in case you come across the edge unexpectedly....

Yeah, flat earth has quite an effect on our scooters. Although I haven't worked out what these effects are yet! Still working on it....will let you know in due course.

I have a friend, who knows a guy, whose father saw the edge. He described it so terrifyingly that others who must have seen it have never again spoken of it.

If it's flat, what's on the bottom side? Peanut butter?

Don't be silly. Every one knows it's on the back of a giant tortoise.

The earth can't be flat... if it were, the cats would have pushed everything over the edge by now.

carburetors would need fewer adjustments. That is until you ride off the edge. So does gravity on the underside keep my ride going?

No the luminaries revolve around the flat and stationary earth.
