I just signed up for the forum, so I'm introducing myself. My name is Susan and I'm well on my way to purchasing my first motorized bicycle (either kit or fully-assembled, jury's still out...). I had a scooter for about a week and a half, which just broke down, and I was so frustrated that I couldn't just pedal it home. Hence the motorized bike idea. I was surprised to find out that they can go so fast! Looking forward to chatting with you folks. Happy cycling.
