I have been riding the **** out of my MB since getting it put together! I have had a few problems such as two broken clutch levers , a broken clutch cable, a break arm, two break cables, three rear tires, five different sets of handle bars and suspention forks, two flat tires, and a cracked and leaking fuel tank! I have fixed everything as it happened and I love this thing! I want to build another one for my girlfriend to ride, maybe a trike?! My whole point of this rambling was to say I havn't been here on the forum for a couple of months due to just riding the piss out of my bike!! Thanks for your time.^5

Dang dude!!! Your nic should be "roughrider" rotfl and welcome back. I tell ppl that I can't get the things to turn into my driveway. A ride around the block some times turns into hrs of a "quick ride"

Last night some one posted a question looking for a thread about a tandem. Alls I could think about all day was an MB w/ with a flat bed like a pick-up truck.

Of all the addictions I have enjoyed and suffered in my very fortunate life, this is with out a doubt, the funest. (is too a word. it's right there on the internet)

Working on muffling the HT muffler so as not to annoy the near-by folks any more then I already do and go for late night rides.

Got link? LOL, that could be a bumper-sticker. Can't get the flat-bed bike out of my head. Picked one out last night and some how that made it to the head of the projects list.

I really love going for late night ride- few cars on the road, po po wrapped up with drunks and other issues and me by myself on my bike. That being said its loud as h3!! and I suspect one of these days a neighbor will call the po po on me. So when I get back to my street I kill the engine and pedal the rest of the way home.

But I sometimes wonder how I can get the thing quieter... It is after all a weed wacker. I wonder if some one would call the cops becuase I gave them nightmares of their forgotten lawn work... rotfl

Thinking of that I should attend to my lawn, but I've got an excuse- we got rain earlier today and it's too wet... But the roads have dried off enough for a ride.(^)

Comfortableshoes, You paint the imagery so well. Can almost see the industrial park where you like to ride.

I live in whats called "Old Wethersfield. It's like Mayberry RFD. Old, small New England town next to the river. About a 1/4 mile going the other way from me is a 4 lane, 40 MPH highway with stop lights every few blocks or so where traffic goes a lil faster then you would want to be on, on a MB. But a crisp Sunday fall morning at sunrise. Is a lil bit of heaven with the calm and quite.

I should work a deal with medicare and see if I can get docs to perscribe theses things as "Exercise enhancers and Cathardic inducers"

Federal law dictates that the fed can not supply the handicaped with a car, but a "Exercise enhancers and Cathardic inducers"? hmmm... lol
