Re: overwhelmed in michigan
rRead all there is on this forum about the choices before you decide on the type engine you want.
Then if you decide on a China two stroke kit, Joe just gave you the best advice. All the hype is just that hype as far as I'm concerned. They will have have problems the first couple of days. then it will even out. After that do your maintenance and save up for a second motor bike.
Most people with cars have spare tires,. You will want a spare bike. It won't cost much more than a good spare tire for a car.
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
