    I am just getting started in this sport of motorized bikes and I realize that I know nothing about it, so I hope that you have a lot of patience, since I have a lot of question's---im still figuring out the proper names of all the components that are entailed in the construction of said vehicle,,,

    I LOVE the fact that there is NO pay out to the MAN, for the privilege of operating my little scoot about...
    im not so much interested in the need for SPEED, just for easy riding and reliability !
    I live OFF the GRID as much as possible and as GREEN as practical, waaay out in the boonies of bfe az....xx..

    Welcome to the forum, riding a m/b is fun and enjoyable. Warning, it can become habit forming.

    Welcome to the forum. Quartzite is an interesting place. A small town in the summer that can grow to almost a million guests in winter.

    Hi and welcome Ironknight, interesting name, fits right in with MB's. You came to the right place. I'm a newbie myself but I can honestly say this forum is one of the best. The members here help all the time. Warning though they are disciplined and well lets just say listen carefully. The elite members are tough but provide a lot of excellent information. Kind of remind me of drill instructors on Paris Island lolol. No disrespect guys some of the best years of my life was spent in the USMC. Anyways. be clear about your questions and provide pictures pictures and more pictures. Lots of them use sites like Photo Bucket, IMG and a few other image clouds. Most importantly have fun!

    I wanted to say thanks Assemble, for your recommendations & tips - but also to mention that one should use caution, not judge content by title alone but rather by what the member has actually provided. We've skilled new members & novice "elites" alike lol, check this thread if you've a mo;

    (in my best snotty British old man voice) Disciplined, you say? Hmm, I seem to have missed the memorandum on discipline.

    I thank you ALL, for the warm welcome AND advise,-- there is something lost in the TYPED word, verses the SPOKEN one,-- this is where reading comprehension and correct punctuation comes in handy,-( I should have paid more attention in school) LOL.

    WELL, after a year of perusing the forum's and a little thinking, (which is dangerous for me)
    I have finally made the purchase of 4 bike engines (one a 212) and three 4 stroke kit's with the g2 frame, - I will post pix,pix,and more pix, as I go along,-- any and ALL advise as I build these, would be MUCH appreciated,,,OH, B T W, -- when I do decide to jump in to something, I GO IN BALL'S A' CLANGING....!
