    Just thought I would say hello to everyone on the board! I'm 33, live in the Midwest USA and am hoping to build my first motorbike soon. I'm an engineer at heart, though mostly as a hobby; I like to make things better. I have a bit of experience with electronics, mechanics, physics and spent a good deal of youth into R/C's.
    The downside for me with this adventure is a lack of machining experience (also tool access) and *sigh, I ain't no welder, lol.
    Anyhoo I'm sure I'll be posting on here a bit. Very glad to have found a decent forum / community for this "arena". I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions, but I am reading existing posts to try and help.

    Hello again! Nice to meet ya'all!

    thx Billy McK

    Hello, Bill and welcome to MBc. Sounds like you are well on your way with your previous knowledge and now doing all the reading of existing posts. Don't overlook the stickies and rules at the top of the thread. Oh, and we have an excellent search function that should be a help to you (I know it was for me.) Good luck, and check out a bunch of threads...they should give you some great ideas. I hope to see you around.
