I remember when I first started riding MABs they were illegal. And I rode for two years before I even knew. I remember when my butt would be sore for days. Now I can ride everyday for hours and my butt never hurts. I remember when I was always stopped on my Della Cruz and asked "Is that from the 1800s?" "Did you restore that yourself?" I remember when I was always stopped and asked if I will build one or sale one. I remember when there was only one vendor online. I remember that first ride, what a thrill it was. I remember when engine kits where $120 with shipping and I thought that was too much. I remember the fight against city council to unbanned motorized bicycles I remember when Death Race was on public streets. I remember when I used to carry enough tools to build a whole new bike on the side of the road. Now most of the time I carry nothing but water. I remember when this forum first started. I remember when I used to mount my motors with rubber. I remember getting pissed off with MAbs and saying "I will never build or ride one of these damn things again". All these years later I am still building them and riding them. I remember quitting as a moderator several times, but yet I am still here. I remember when I thought 23mph was fast on a bicycle, now speeds above 45+ mph is nothing.
