That's great, Allen W. I like to pull my kid with the motorized bicycle. She loves it. The neighbors thought it was weird, but have quit asking me about it now.

Today I saw a neighbor riding his sport-bike around the park, with his kid riding with him on the bike. I thought it was awesome. I waved hello to them.

Rode to walgreens to drop off some perscriptions. I locked it up to a drain pipe that was bolted to a support pillar. When i came back, i took the lock off, secured it and moved my bike away from the pillar, Started it up on the first pull, and as i got on the people at the redbox on the on the other side of the pillar looked at me and one said, Hey theres one of them motorcycle bikes! I floored it before i got off the sidewalk and chuckled as i drove away. lol Motorcycle bikes. Peoples descriptions can be sooo funny! My bike currently has 2 engines. They only saw the friction drive. They didn't see my china girl in frame. It is a beast. I have yet to come up with a name except "The Beast". lol

How about the Siamese Twin? Post it in thread: Clever Bike Names, and surely readers will contribute.

PS Walgreens has good cheap beer called Big Flatts, usually by cases of 16 or 32 cans.

If its really cold, it's good chug beer, and I didn't get any headaches, except the time I tried to drink 12 in a row (headache next day lol) .

My friend made a new air filter cap for me and I installed it on my race bike.

Thanks happy. It's a Briggs with a stock carb and moped tank.

Well, I got a surprise today: I learned I had three broken rear spokes! I spent a little time in careful thought, but I don't know if it was the stick I failed to dodge (which turned out to be hickory) or a pothole I hit to avoid a distracted motorist, or what happened or how long ago. But anyway, during a routine going-over today, I chanced upon a spoke that didn't look right so, being rather anal, I checked all my spokes. No ride today.
This evening was spent with the rear wheel off, and mounted in a spare fork as I laced in some spare spokes. Then I trued the wheel all over again, re-mounted my hub adapter & drive sprocket, adjusted rear coaster brake, etc. etc.
She'll be in top form when I'm done. And I'm glad I caught 'em before they created a far worse problem. But I still would rather have been riding. Oh well, she was way past-due for some shop time anyway.
