I've been wanting a scooter like a honda ruckus but the wife said it would be too dangourous( my brother was involved in an accident on one, he's fine) so I'm getting a motorized bike instead. The more I looked into it the more I'm happy with the decision.
oh yeah this will be an adventure for you, but it will be a fun one if you take your time, follow proven methods for doing things that can be found here on the forum that will help you avoid some mistakes that can be a real pain in the neck and a set back at times.

Biggest trouble some get i to is trying to reinvent the wheel and not being willing to listen to advice from those who have built several bikes with lo g term success and reliability, no one on here knows it all even though there are a few that may think they But there are many very experienced builders here that are very quick and willing to help out with solid proven advice related to the type of build someone is shooting for and that is the beauty of this forum, the moderators are very knowledgeable and strive to be fair in their judgements regarding conflicts etc....

You're in the right place for the best advice and best group of people concerning this great hobby, its your bike and many of us want to see you build it to be as safe and fun as possible and make it into what you want it to be so welcome to this huge wealth of knowledge.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
