    florida rider, yes, but maybe not for long

    surprised there were no more answers to your query. I am in the Ocala area. Been riding only a short time (month or so) since putting my motor on the Roadmaster mountain bike. My wife and I both bought bikes several years ago and we go riding together when the weather cools down enough for us to ride. I restrain myself from using motor when I'm riding with her. That's the beauty of the motor bike. It can be either or.
    We are looking for property in TN. Been in FL way yonder too long.
    Still breaking my motor in. Going to take me forever to use up that first gallon. Wife is particular about the roads I ride on. :-(
    Guess she's right.

    PS just re-read your post. You are hailing from "south" FL. Guess I don't qualify there.

    I'm in Pensacola, just about as far away form you as can be and still be in Florida. I just ordered my engine and hope to have it here next week.

    I took a second look, and I gotta ask, what engine is that? And how doe's your hand brakes work with speed? I only ask because my 1st build was a mountain bike with hand brakes, and it did'nt stop well at all! I tried different pads,and everything else I could try, but I ended up going to beach cruisers with coaster brakes, and eventually with front disk also! I must say though, Thats awesome!!!!!
