Re: New to motorized bikes
We're glad you joined up.
250 lbs is not really all that much. Just ride a bit gently. When motorized a run-of-the-mill bike is taking a strain that's getting near it's limit. So you don't want to beat on it. That's hard on your own body, too, for that matter.
I don't think I ought to recommend an engine. That's an individual thing. Some of us like 2 cycles and some of us like 4s.
Just spend some time reading around here. Click on any thread that looks interesting and you'll learn a lot.
