    Ya, a tad warmer here. Both sites offer good info. Knowledge should be free and shared.Hope I don't have to choose a gang. I am lousy with the hand signs(arthritis), but the guns are cool. ......

    I was banned for saying "If we were kinder to folks, this place would be full to the rafters" And then I got dog bit, snork. I was told they wanted quality people, not quantity. No kidding. I was grateful when I found you folks. As some one said, a tad warmer here, fo' shore. But I really miss some of the really great ppl there.
    I do not want to be just contributor of a web how-to manual or a "Movement" Imagine the "Million man buzz" into D.C., all in finely pressed brown shirts. It's been months and the thought of that still cracks me up. If you really read over there, any one who suggests the "K" word, (kind) gets banned. I am just fine right here and glad to know you folks.

    The most interesting thing: BOTH site owners are about the nicest guys on earth. Tom is a young, bright, handsome fellow with no attitude whatsoever. Paul I have not met in person, but the dude would give you the shirt off his back. Really cool guy.

    Sites are "made" by the mods and the regulars.

    2 forums, no waiting. Or, "A tale of 2 forums" They were the best of times. They were the worst of times.

    I haven't been around much lately
    been busy with the grandkids :)
    there is much imagination down in DIY

    I added the aka's to make sure everyone who knew me there wouldn't think I was being 'shady' or anything
    I just wanna enjoy my bike and help others enjoy theirs...that's all :)

    "I just wanna enjoy my bike and help others enjoy theirs...that's all"

    Exactly justBill, Me too.

    I didn't mean to sound unkind with the aka stuff. Just playing around. I was danny3xd over there. Is great to see you and some of the others again. And nothing wrong with duel affiliations. It is about the happy and the fun.

    I surf at both sites, using the same name. I like the continuous responses at the other forum, but I believe the DIY section here is the best on the web, thanks to deacon and Neat Times, among others.

    Bill, you were never out of line there, and I respect you for that.

    Iron,

    I'm in Calgary, too. I ordered my bike from Spookies which, to keep it 2-forum topical, I found advertised on the other forum and then...found them advertising here 2! Whadayaknow?!!!

    I was really hoping I'd get my wheels t his week, but realistically don't expect it before winter locks us into another cycle of hibernation... you know, end of next week or the week after that!

    There is a store in the South end of town. I chatted with them by email, but they didn't have a bike style I liked, so I went with Spookytooth.

    Should ask them about other options -- a studded rear tire and maybe a ski for the front.

    Cheers Home-boy!

    Brenton

    Hi Bill

    great seeing you here as well.
    I thought the Picture with the two Children looked Familiar.:D

    I enjoy helping others as well.

    these little motors are a bit less stressful then the Bigger,, Hd ,,triumph,, Bsa ect ect I'm use to.
    They are inexpensive
    and as my cards Say.
    the most fun you can have with your pants on.

    cheers:)

    I did not know there was another site. Once I found and joined this site, I have not had a need to search any where else. All the help you need with these engines can be found here somewhere. If you can't find it all you have to do is ask. The guy's here have been great! No wandering here...(^)
