I am an avid cyclist, havent driven a car in 6 years. 30 mile round trip to work each day. i love the exercise, but...... gr its winter again.
I just finished installing a 80cc motor on a beach cruiser bike. was a pain but its running.
I joined this site to find out more about motor bikes now that i have one.

Welcome to the addiction. If you can, post some pictures. It takes the cold away when we are admiring everyone's work.

lol yeah a pick up. i had the back on my mountian bike and just converted it over to the motor bike. i thought about doing saddle bags but i didnt want to lose any of the balance with an off center load.

Yeh buying one gallon of milk, I move my tools to the other side. But the ability to carry stuf makes these bikes pay for them selves going to the local store and back, Also make me want to go to the store and back :)

The dog thing, oh man. I think we look and sound like wounded deer to them.
On the other forum there is a great bear V. MB story. Truly scary until the end.
