    Hey peoples. I was riding around the town I live in SE WI, encountered another fellow human on a motorized bicycle this afternoon and we stopped and chatted for a bit. He asked if I had registered with this site, I replied I did not, and so, here I am . Good day!

    Welcome to MBc, Mateo. Now that you have introduced yourself, be sure to read all you can, including the 'Stickies' at the top of every Forum. They contain a lot of information. For example, Sticky by Al.Fisherman has 20 or so links to “How To…” threads, and important pages for you to follow. Sticky "Forum Rules and Infractions” by Anton is a 'must read' about how you are expected to Conduct yourself. However, read all of them, and be sure to use the search feature. Almost every question you might have has already been asked and answered someplace here. If you are still stumped with a certain problem, post your question in the proper Forum and I am sure you will get an answer. Good Luck to you.

    BTW, Kenosha is some beautiful country. I particularly liked the beach area and park...many fond memories...I hope progress hasn't ruined it.

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain?
    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have?
    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have?
    (Lookup and personally read these laws.)
    4) What kind of bike is being motorized?
    5) What is the bike to be used for?
    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy?

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. Good luck with your build or buy.
