    Hello is this the place for intro's? Having some probs here.

    Hey all, please let this serve as my introduction. I've faithfully used this forum for over a year now without joining and will tell you that the decisions I made regarding this hobby ie, repairs, trouble shooting, decisions were a direct result of the knowledge I gained from reading this forum. I had small, worrisome issues with my china 80 that were resolved by applying what I learned in here... a wealth of information. I'm 53 and have ridden motorcycles most of my life but as a kid I always wanted a motored bicycle. Now I have one, a GEBE Tanaka 40 rack mount on a Firmstrong 26" Rebel.At 6'1" and 198 I have room to zoom. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    hi and welcome to MBc, good luck and continued happy motoring!:rolleyes:
  6. Welcome Jim H:D

    I also was visiting this site way longer than I should have before I joined (two weeks!!!!).

    I actually thought that the site would take my e-mail and distribute it for profit as so many do but they didn't:cool:

    Thinking about it I wonder if that stops anyone else??? Maybe we need to make that point more obvious???

    Did you just not get around to it or was there a reason. Just curious as to why others like myself don't subscribe sooner.:):D

    this is straight from the RULES and POLICIES, section one:
    it's been there all along, in bold...i think it's clear enough? not being a smartypants, but people are supposed to be looking there before joining, eh?

    ok, back to you, jim...
  10. Sorry to get off topic again jim.

    Augidog, I do remember reading this in the rules but didn't bother reading the rules till I had joined and was about to post my first reply and wanted to be within them.

    This is the first forum that I have subscribed too so although have been working with computers for many years it was all new to me. I know many people that have been stung by bogus operators even though they appear legit. I have a yahoo email that I use if I am not sure about the operators but now have changed my email to may regular one as I trust augidog and the admin crew here completely.

    Back to topic.... Jim looks like you have a good bad weather riding system in place:D:D
  11. I've had it up to here with your roo-ills!!!

    welcome jim!

    I joined back when it was just Tom and Augi and they were as helpful as duane from thatsdax.com. we told each other our problems (engine related - this was before the white zone) and we helped each other narrow down the causes of our problems.

    this has become a great community.
