    Hi
    I'm new to the whole motorbike thing. In years past I had alot of dirt bikes and road bikes but after having a family I gave it up. Now with one kid gone and the other only a few years away, I thought it might be fun to ride again. The best part is I can ride and feel good that I'm spending alot less on gas. I was going to build an electric bike when I stumbled across the two stroke add ons and felt this would be a good place to start since its intitial cost is lower and there is less weight. I will be buying an engine soon (as soon as I can get the snow covered tarp off my mountain bike). I always like to do alot of research before starting any project and thats how I found this forum, its great!!! I have already learned alot and will be here after I get my motor to look for ways to improve performance. Thanks to all who make this site possible.
