    Somebody will laugh at you even if you are doing the smartest or coolest thing in the world. Keep riding and saving gas.

    hi update: we had a car and motorcycle show here at the park this spring. so i entered my motor bicycle. they did not know what class to put it in? lol so they put me in custom bike. they put me between two $25,000+ custom choppers, o crap. well to make a long story short my little bicycle with a motor got more attention than the choppers. pissed off the owners. they went and complained and got me moved. all i got to say is IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE HEAT GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!!

    To me it's utterly senseless to get in your car to drive a mile to the store...you're wasting a lot of gas.....sitting at traffic lights.....when on a bike....you'll get there faster with a whole lot more fun.....think green indeed ! :D

    I've only had one group of idiots point and laugh. They were all standing around a mud covered 4 wheeler parked illegally on the street so I wouldn't expect much more out them anyway. Other than that I get them same kind of questions as everyone. In fact, the other day I met a guy who was thinking about getting one of the kits, it must have been cool for him to see it all put together and be able to ask questions about it.

    I feel a little funny sometimes riding my MB. My last bike was a Vmax so, I have done a complete 180 in terms of speed and horsepower. I am really enjoying the MB because it owes me nothing, and I like to tinker.

    VMax: 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds.
    MB: 0 to 3.5 in 60 seconds.

    Not accurate, just comparing generalities.

    There's a guy here who has had one for years, and I used to think he looked pretty funny when he rode it around. Then I rode one. Things have nver been the same.

    Remember this..most people..whatever they say or however they look at it ...walk away wishing they had one...Its not about being green and saving gas , who cares , Its about building/putting something together with a motor and wheels and having a little fun...Yea

    Easy for you to say Gator. You're in Florida. (^) 'Up north' we only get about 3 (4 if lucky) months of good riding weather.:( Otherwise I'd have no problem riding these things all year round and use my car for the groceries, the wife/kid and pets.
