    Hello everyone. I am very pleased to be here with youall. I've been riding something two wheeled for 41 years. I started with a Whizzer, then a Sears Puch moped, then a Cushman and on and on from there.

    Fortunately I have a few years as a motorcycle mechanic on Honda, Triumph, Yamaha and so on.

    Currently, I ride a Stella scooter with a Polini kitted 208cc Piaggio/Vespa engine, and a 2006 Royal Enfield 500cc bullet.

    My plan is to sell the RE and buy a Whizzer (hmmm, haven't I been there before?). Or maybe a really cool electric bike. I figure I have all winter to do research and ask dumb questions.

    From what I've seen so far, this forum will be lots of fun.

    Thank you all for being here.

    Fred
