    Hi all! I'm ecstatic to find this site in one of my browsing sessions as I've been looking for a site which could help me tinker with my recently purchased China 2 stroke for a mildly stretched cruiser and am excited to actually "cruise" on it. Anybody here from my area?laff

    Welcome to the forum Chrome. I visited the Philippines a few times in 1989.
    I'd love to visit again sometime.

    '89? Wow that's quite a long time since you were last here in Manila. A lot has changed since then and you're welcome to visit anytime!

    Welcome to the fun, Chrome!

    I'm the one who made a lot of the emoticons here...........if you'd like one with a Phillipine flag, just say the word.

    Whoa! One word to describe your rides bro...LUPEEEEET (in English-awesoooome!) Here, you'd have to ride/cruise with a group just to be safe with that kind of a ride. Or you have to always look over your shoulder to avoid getting bike-jacked! At last I found the perfect set up for that "tensioner pulley" and rode my micargi inspired semi stretch cruiser this afternoon...drew a lot of attention and looks of approval from practically everyone I passed!

    I just posted it for Paul to install. It's in the suggestions under the thread "It's not me emoticons". I hope it's to your liking, but if not, I can fix it. All you got to do is let me know.

    You are very much welcome!

    By the way, there are two of them posted because one was requested for the blue on top, instead of the red. I guess blue for peace and red for war.

    pec. pino.
