    In California, I'm seeing an extraordinary lack of interest in motorized bikes this summer - are others seeing this?

    California is a large area.
    Where are you located?

    If anything, I've noticed more motorized bikes around town since I got mine operational - but that could just be because I'm thinking about them more. I've seen a bunch of 2-strokes and only one other 4-stroke. The 2-strokes seem a lot more popular.

    Funny I see them a lot more too. I do look out for them now.......and they have a unique sound that I had no clue about before having one.

    I live in a 2-stoplight town of a little over 3000 people about 35 miles from Sacramento. Every year it seems we get one more chinagirl rider, but by the end of the summer, that bike has broken down and ends up on Craigslist :D

    The town I live in is small enough that one of these makes perfect sense to get around with. I get quite a bit of interest in my 4-stroke shifter bike when I gas up or go grocery shopping, but no one I've given my number to has followed up once they hear the cost of building the equivalent!

    strange, I'm usually busy during summer, but now get maybe one repair a week

    ads on CL are reposting over & over (I've even bought a few to repair & resell myself)

    thought it might be due to ebayers not selling engines to CA anymore, but maybe it's just this area
