    Nice to see someone about 20 min away. Have you ever built a MB?

    Not yet, working on my first one very soon here. I just discovered the hobby a few days ago and I'm definitely hooked on the idea. Trying to get a kit from someone here, and if I can't, I'll be buying one next month. I'm fairly certain I can assemble one from a kit, and once I get some grease under my fingers I definitely want to start looking at more custom stuff, but I wanna get comfortable with the concept first.

    Ooooh, cool, you'll have to share pics and stories once you get 'er up and running.

    I heard some good things about thatsdax, also some bad. I'm buying from a guy on here though, we finalized the plans on it and I just gotta send the money order out now.

    Thats cool, it seems like it's going to be a good hobby for me. I'm used to tinkering with stuff, been messing with engines since I was 10 or so (im 23 now), I'm getting into this mostly because I miss working on my old ATV.

    Age doesn't matter, you've done more than a lot of people can do themselves. I have friends of all ages, because people are either cool or they're not, and age is a meaningless number. 9 or 90, doesn't matter. You seem cool so far, heh.

    Nope, no other vehicles. No cars or ATVs anymore, just my trusty mongoose and an old huffy. No need to have a car around here, but a motorized bike would be convenient to have and fun to work on :D
