Re: Reasons for riding MB For me, it started as a cheap means of independent transportation. I was working at a tobacco plant and getting rides from less than dependable coworkers. Thought about a cheap used moped and started looking on cl. Ran across a gasbike ad and bought a kit. Had no idea how much fun it would be. So now its transportation and fun, plus the complete ability to customize my ride with whatever parts I want and the freedom to drive down the road at a nice cruising speed. I'm on my 3rd bike, a completely custom 98cc cruiser and I have absolutely no intention of giving up this hobby any time soon. Really, who needs a reason to get into mb's? Lol.
