    LOL, Don't do it, Dan...We're trying to stop this war, not prolong it. Happy will do something provocative, I have no doubt. His meek and mild twin has told me some things that you wouldn't believe about his brother. We and our troops are safer with him confined stateside. Send him to California, or Boulder Colorado; he would only start a riot there, not a war.

    Hey Dan, yeah im doing goog jus ready to get the heck outta here. I got my dax f80 the other day, im very pleased looking at these other guys kits i think i got a good deal. Too bad for me they have completely shut us down from riding them here SUCKS. But this is giving me time to study up, I have to figure out a way to get my bike back to the states, i need a big box lol. Oh yeah i scored a 80 cc skyhawk too for 75 bucks the whole kit it is used but the guy bought it, put it on a few months ago in a hurry i tweeked it an mostly i have been riding it. So basicly his lack of interest became my reward lol. This will be a great engine for my wifes build, this way she can see how fun it is too(never hurts to kiss up) lol thanks for replying Tim.flg..flg.

    Dunno if you have access 2 UPS or the like. But they have boxes just for bikes. (ditch the bike but send the engine and parts home) I just sent a Point Beach to IL from CT. Cost more then the bike is worth. Slapped the Honda in a box for cheap though. Does the military help with some thing like a personal possession shipping, like a MB?

    If you need a box, lemme know. If I can't find one, will get one shipped over.


    75 bucks? score!!! dance1

    OH! Good choice going with Dax. Great guy and biz. He really looks out for us

    Get home safe

    Hey steve thanks for the support i was in Afghanistan in 06-07.
    Dan i don have UPS here we do have a post office i can ship anything up to 70lbs for 40 bucks. The military thing is problem finding room in a container,or actually finding the right person to find the room, if you know what i mean and then when it will get there i might be home months before it would get there. i would ditch it but i got the bike free an have spent alot of time on it so i dunno kid of partial to it ya know . I gotta figure somethin out lol Thanks Tim

    thanks guys for all the support. cant wait to start building. My wife is pretty easy going about things with me as long as i involve her of course im also into sound systems, she has two twelves in the trunk. I like to spoil her sometimes lol, this is also something we can do together and perfect for my wifes physical problems, she had 32nd case in the world of certain type of spinal cancer and the only survivor. I wanted us to ride bikes together an now we can this hobby is perfect. Lol im jus chomping at the bit to put my bike(s) together. Thanks again guys
