Default Hello From Gainesville, FL

Hello All!

I recently purchased a Jeep Patriot and took it offroading in the Withlacochee State Forest, about 1.5 hours south of where I live, and it was really fun, but I could only do so much without tearing up my new SUV.

I keep seeing people on motorized bikes around town, and I started thinking that I could put a really powerful engine/motor on my Specialized Rockhopper and have a cheap and really fast dirt bike.

I started Google-ing, and found this site. Seems like a pretty nice community of people interested in the same thing I am, although I assume some people are interested in a motorized bike for street/transportation purposes, where as others (like me) are interested in it for offroading purposes.

Anyway, I plan to start reading through the site to figure out what to get and how to go about making it work. If anyone has any specific suggestions related to using a high quality mountain bike and a really powerful engine/motor to make a dirtbike, I'd love to hear them.

See you around the site!
