    I joined because I was just about to start building my first motorized bike and thought I may need some help. I've stayed because boy did I need some help haha. This forum has a great wealth of information and the members are incredibly knowledgable.

    I find myself on this forum usually once a day, and when I'm not fixing my bike I'm looking for new ideas and upgrades. I was sure this would become a great hobby but instead it's become an awesome addiction!

    To keep from killing myself on a KLR or V-Strom (my mid-life crisis).
    Wifey decided I wanted a motorized bike instead - we had seen a 40's style Army motor-bile on classifieds (tres cool), and she suggested I try something safe like that.
    Little does she know... I can get a compound fracture watching Monday Night Football

    Greetings all, btw
    First post from a Newbie. I am loving the site - much info, welcoming community, can't wait to start posting questions that you're all tired of answering...

    Will intro myself later - I hope to have some power between my legs by spring
    Just one question - where do you hide all the Newfies?

Haha,i thought so to but everything apparently havent been done before,i started a thread about using a coolingfan clutch from a car as a clutch for a briggsbuild but no one had been daft enough too look into that one,but now the forum at least know it cant be done.its nice to be on the frontline sometimes! But i really love this forum and the flashlike response you get ranging from Florida to Italy,fantastico! its a nice and warm place to be...:D

    I joined just for info, but found a freindly community of like thinkers who are incredibly talented and eager to share everything, including ideas, knowledge, advice, preferences and even parts and transportation to events. Couldn't ask for anything better than this forum.

    I typically join what looks like the leading internet forum on whatever my latest fancy is. I bought a MINI, so I joined the MINI forum, then a NewBeetle, then a Volvo, and Cigar box Guitar Building, and Martin guitars, etc.

    I believe I have found these forums to be a great source of expert and near expert advice on various issues. Also, like this forum, it's an opportunity to talk with and get ideas from people with interests similar to mine.
