Hi. I'm a NOOB and recently joined the forums. I got interested in building an engine-assisted bike and found a lot of good information here before I started building my kit.
I'm disabled and cannot pedal a bike without extreme pain anymore, though I used to ride mountain bikes a lot for fun and exercise. I also used to ride motorcycles. I'm glad to be tentatively on two wheels again. I need the adrenaline, and I love to tinker and tune. Before I became disabled I was a control systems engineer. I have some mechanical skills, and somewhat better electrical and electronics skills.
I recently got my first kit mechanically built complete enough to ride and enjoy.

I'm sure I'll be hanging around the forums for quite some time as I have questions for those of you with more experience and knowledge.
Tuning two-strokers is all new to me. Other than using and maintaining weed-eaters and chainsaws, I've never really worked with them, so lots to learn.

Yeah, I got my first build finished enough to ride this past Saturday. It's a typical cruiser. Murray Monterrey. With a 69cc engine kit. I'm loving it.
