    or is the whole world sick of high gas prices, same old same old and looking for a new diversion in the form of motored bicycles. When I started out on this venture a guy said to me, "Why?". He"s a real big guy who thinks that big is better, in every form. I didn't like him then and don't like him now... he watches me as I pull out of the drive grinning like a 'possum and when I return two to three hours later, he's there to see me return with that 'possum grin on my face. He's envious because I ride every day while his big yamaha just sits and cries, beggin to be rode. I'm having more fun than some and at least, more than most.:p:p

    I get the best comments from chopper riders, because they can see my smile for a fraction of what it cost them for theirs !

    i was tempted to edit that line for you, to read: "and i rarely used to smile."

    You bet something's going on fellas, as fast as this site is growing. I would never have thought there would be so many people interested in the same thing I am interested in and it spans age and gender. How huge is this forum going to be a year from now?Are Tom and Augi geniuses? So many questions, so many answers!

    mad (and naive) genius's at best...it was all luck & timing, buddy :)

    i've been pondering the state of the union lately & i've come to the conclusion that the petro-based administration may think they're manipulating us, but they're playing right into our hands...hit someone in the wallet hard enuff and long enuff, & you're sure to get a reaction...

    it seems MBc has turned out to be a safe port during the storm, and i'm luvin' it!!

    Yeah Augi, But what happens when big brother sees all of us in our thousands upon thousands and realizes that he isn't getting any revenue out of us ie; registration, insurance, tags,etc. It almost scares me to even post it.

  12. I wish it was easier for me to register my ratbike in Boston so that I can rest assured I'm not going to get pulled over. I want to register it as a "motor assisted bike" not a moped. Dax was very clear that this should be classed differently from a moped because it didn't start out it's life with that purpose.

    8 bucks is o.k. with me but governmental interference sticks in my craw.

    $8 would be worth the peace of mind, when riding in officer rich territory. When I built my first bike I went out of my way to try and register it as something. I was rebuffed by officialdom and have been happy in my little grey area of the law since.

    Edward,
    have you heard anything about that kansas bill? I forgot the #, but I read about in 2005.
    I'm curious as to whether it passed or got squashed!
    and ya know....I would be the last to know if it passed.
    and probably walking home.....after my bike's been impounded. hahaha

  18. Why this hobby is booming:
    1) Built with our own two hands.
    2) With that,Harley guys nod with approval.
    3) Way cooler than a moped
    4) You can ride the bike trails.
    5) All the kiddies think you are a GOD.
    6) Way cool pulling up at work then locking your bike with the pedal bikes.
    7) You are a rebel in this cruel world.
    8 ) Girls love you...maybe not...but maybe.
    9) You are saving the world.
    10)Life is too short. Life is fun.
