mac...glad you're here, but i'd feel better if you'd follow policy and "introduce yourself"...especially if you're gonna get involved in something so significant, we like to know who we're dealing with/talking to
go here and start a "new topic"...tell us as much or as little as you'd like...what we'd like to know is your level of mechanical/motoredbiking experience and if you're new to using forums (which i think we now know) : http://www.motoredbikes.com/forumdisplay.php?f=77
make a post in the 'introduce yourself' forum and say HI to everyone !
just like if you walked into a garage full of guys/girls workin on their bikes...
because, that's exactly what you are doing
