Hi, folks. Great forum you have here. Like my fellow Coloradoan a couple of posts below mine, I stumbled into this world via ebay and craigslist. I love the idea of getting back to the roots of motorcycling.

I have a custom single speed mountain bike that I bought b/c it looked cool but haven't ridden very much. I think it would be a great bike to motorize, though. I'm thinking one of Dax's Titans and it sounds like people here are of the same mind.

So if I can ask a question, why do you more experienced folks prefer motorized bikes over motorcycles or scooters?

Welcome to the forum, glad you joined us :D

I've alway's been a Motorcycle person, I have owned many motorcycle's and one scooter.. I like the MB because no insurance, no driver's license, no registration. It's the most low cost fun you can have on two wheels

Welcome to the forum. You are among some the greatest motorized bicycle enthusiasts in the world. I've rode motorcycles all my life. But when I was a kid I always wanted a motorized bicycle, so I guess I'm fulfilling a childhood fantasy. If I had had a motorized bicycle like I have now when I was in Junior High, I would've been the coolest guy in town. I like the no inurance, no tags, no inspection. It's just the ultimate simple machine. Plus I just love it when someone asks where I bought that thing...................................

Welcome to the forum. I envy you living in Colorado. We just moved from Colorado and miss it bad.

Folks prefer motorized bikes over scooters and motorcycles probably due to cost and simplicity of design. A 50cc scooter sells for 2k new.
