This past Sunday I took the easy/chicken's way and bought an already converted bike from a fellow in Golden who had just finished his 3rd conversion. Back in the day (we're talking early 70s) I had some lasting relationships with scooters and mopeds but never with a motorized bike. After three days of riding I find myself wondering how I could have wandered so far from my roots for so long, but it sure feels good to be back. Though I'm chomping at the bit to almost immediately build my own and unload the pre-built that I just bought, the reality is that I will probably be riding this 'Flying Horse' for a while or two. With that said if anyone has some good beginner tips they would like to share, I'm all ears, particularly if it has to do with quieter mufflers that might be available. It's good to be back home again!
