Default Re: Why did I join this great Motorized Bicycle forum?

Welcome to you new guys who are not new to motorbicycling. I joined both forums about this time a year ago. I found the other forum less user friendly, less easy to see pictures and the tone of things didn't feel quite right. Every so often I go back and look around, but feel like an outsider so almost never post. No doubt there are some great guys over there as there are here. I think part of the success here is that it is pretty civilized, meaning that people are generally civil to each other at the very least and more often than not are friendly and helpful. When a flame gets lit, somebody steps in and gently snuffs it out. No heavy handed ranting from the moderators who I think are A1 guys.
When I think of how much I have learned here in one year it make me feel like I've been to a kind of correspondence school for motored bikes. The biggest plus is the friends I have made.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
