Hey, I'm a new guy from SW Virginia. I don't have a motorized bike yet but I'm thinking about it. My wife is an avid cyclist (not me) and we both have motorcycles. I could easily take an MB the 4 miles I need to get to work via a country road and Rt.11. I currently take my motorcycle which gets better MPG than the car. To be honest, I'm thinking of this more as a project and source of fun that might have some practical benefits. I'd like to fiddle with something mechnical but I'm a too indimidated to start diassembling the motorcycles.
