Default Re: Reasons behind motorized biking

I just wanted a couple of things:
Cheap transportation, something that had a greater range than electric & that I could fuel up instantly rather than waiting on a recharge; something that was easy for me to maintain (I am more comfortable working on two-strokers, I know them pretty well); and something I could pedal home if the motor conked - instead of having to call for a tow.
But also, being a typical tools-and-workbench type guy, I wanted something to build myself to suit my taste. I don't bother denying that I possess a bit of vanity, and I wouldn't feel very inclined to ride an ugly bike, so I made one that suits my taste and turns heads. Thus adding to the overall enjoyment.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
