      hey Buddy can I pick your brain ?Built my own muffler. took a while to get good compression but finally got it. I riped apart my stock muffler that broke @ weld now I have a problem eith carby, I thought at first I just didn't have my barrel lined up to go all the way down . SO! I pulled the air filter and it is moving up and down very nicely.

      Somewhat ironically, I am a huge Jack Benny fan and have a decent collection of his radio programs on MP3- this is my first time around, though.

      If you want a good laugh, go on youtube and search for jack benny and Mel Blanc on the Tonight Show in about '74. Good stuff.

      What kind of motorcycling protection does a chainsaw helmet have? I bet it helps with noise though.

      Hello Bambabikeguy, I am hopeing that you give me your opion. I live in a hilly area and with gear on I would weight about 240 LBS, I was looking at the Tanaka 32cc motor (for awhile I was gready for the 40cc, but decided didn't think need that much power) but I am debating on the R/S 35cc. Oh I also want to be able to tow a trailer for groceries or camp gear. So of the 2 motors in you opion do you think would be better? Apratt (Arthur Pratt) thanks

      Bama,
      I know all that area very, very well. The Cherokee Trail, HWY 11 is a beautiful ride . Walhalla is an interesting little town,. There is a park there called Oconee Station that is historical, & across the street & up a very short distance, is a parking area on the left. It has a nature trail & it goes back to a pretty waterfall. Turn around to come back toward town to get on Hwy #11. NOTE , this hwy has some long steep hills & no bike lanes. There are gas stations here & they & not too far apart . Super friendly people in the area. Lake Jocassee exit is to the left & it takes you to a beautiful lake & campground. There are plenty of places on each side of #11 where you could pull over, hide yourself & bike, & camp. Just look for old unused road beds , driveways. A few places on the right are adjacent to a pretty large creek. Table Rock State Park is another pretty area. So is Glassy Mountain, but no access =$$$$$ homes, & I have relatives from the 1800's buried up on it in small private cemetaries. Near Cleveland the road gets more level & populated. Just before Cleveland, if you wish, you can turn left on #276 for more scenic mountain views. If you stay on #11, it is pretty nice & wide open til you get to Campobello. If you are old enough, you might remember the awful song, " Camp-beller, My Home Far-Away." You could turn L there, on #176 & go over the old Saluda Grade ! Beautiful area with steep, winding , less traveled road that goes to Tryon, N.C. Very historical hwy. If you stayed on #11, at Campobello, you would go straight to get to Chesnee. Campobello to Chesnee area is not very pretty at all.
      my e mail with any questions.

      I've read a lot of things on both mb sites and I also learned a lot. But I have to say that of all the people involved in this endeavor, you are truly one of the nicest guys around. And I know of no other that makes the long trips across the country, and yet your still a humble and kind hearted man. When I first saw that film you made, I thought this guy is really special, a one of a kind and I wish to Thank You for taking the time to answer my questions, which there were many, and giving me the opportunity to get to know a little about you through the correspondence. Thank You Paul........Glenn

      Bama, Jim H here checking to see if you're ok...haven't heard anything from you since last activity 10-18-07. I don't know what happened for you to fall out of contact... I would just feel better knowing you are well and healthy, you were instrumental to the mb revolution. Hope you are well.
