    Hello Fellow Motorbike Junkies,

    I'm glad to find a friendly forum to peruse when I can't be riding or wrenching my bikes. My pride and joy is a vintage Schwinn armed with an ebay 70cc 2 stroke. Close to 2000 miles and the more I learn about these machines, the better the bike runs.

    I don't foresee myself ever not having one of these:D

    Steve

    Welcome to the dark side. I hope you enjoy this place as much as I do.
    Say Hi to George W. when you see him. We need to work on getting Steve as our offical washington spokes person. All in favor?!

    I would be honored to be the official (or otherwise) spokes person for motorized bicyling. I'm not too sure how Dubya feels about motorized bikes, but he does enjoy chainsaws...so....maybe a a chainsaw powered bike would be appealing.

    Obama, Clinton, and McCain all seem like willing MB riders so the future looks bright for us.

I need some one else to do it and I don't know of any shops in this area I can bring it to. I got your name from motorbicycling.com member list. After two hours of reaching for a richmond member, I am messaging you because you were the closest . Do you know of any shop that could help me in the richmond to D.C. area. I'm at my wits end. Any help will :-||be greatly appreciated. Thanks Marie M:-||

    Hi Marie, my apologies for such a late response, I have not been very active in this hobby for a couple of years now. I think you may have gotten my location wrong, I live in Michigan and am not familiar with the DC area at all. Have you ask the active members on the forum for assistance? They are a great bunch of guys who are very willing to walk you through just about any problem you may have. Sorry I can't help you, I hope all works out for you and that you are riding soon. Sincerely Kelly
