What do you use your motorized bike for?
not for picking up chicks, that's for sure.
First 3, been doing it since 2004...........
Picking up chicks.
I'm gonna hang with you and learn from the master ;-)
I'm using it for commuting and getting back in shape.
I used to ride my bike to work (10 miles one way) and it's about 95% all uphill (some sections very steep, and others fairly flat but still uphill) and it would take me around an hour at first and when I got in some kinda shape about 45-50 min. After cleaning up I'd still be sweatin a few hrs later and decided I didn't feel like doing that everyday so when I saw these little motor kits I figured what the heck, I can use it most of the time on the way to work and peddle home to start burnin off my double belted Michelin! ;-) For me it's a win-win with a 1/2 hr commute to and from work and not being a mess when I get to work!
Thanks for sharing and a lot of great answers. Keep'em coming.

Everything, except hauling some larger things. I can beat the fastest motorcycle thru the city to the beach in rush hour!
I have a Goldwing and Silverwing but alway wanted a motorbike since I was a kid and a neighbor had a Whizzer, quite a bit more than half a century ago. When I saw these engine kits online I knew I had to have one, a new Whizzer was more than I wanted to spend. I've only ridden this one about 30 miles, just about all of it around the neighborhood but it's a kick. It amuses the neighbors too. Today I came home on my Goldwing from visiting a friend in the next town and took the MB out for a ride just for the fun of it. It can't get much better than that on two wheels.
EVERYTHING!!! I can get across town faster on my MB verses driving my car,and its way more fun riding my bike.
I think other than just plain fun, the best use of my bike so far has been for meeting new people. I can't ride anywhere without someone coming over to talk to me.
I have to concur with Maxvision,theses bike are great conversation starters,every single time I rode my MB,I've been approached by someone curious about my bike.You'll defently meet new people on these things.
For me it is cheap amusement. I am planning on building another one with an EZM Q-Matic for transportation though. I really like the idea of 4-stroke engines. Much quieter and more torque. I allready have 2 bikes with 2-stroke engines.
