    Hi Chris. Glad you found your way here.
  3. Curious. Do you lock up your bike at every stop?
    I could see how a MotoredBike would be a perfect Apartment Maintenance vehicle.

    Welcome to MBc,btw!

    why you looking for one (im kidding) no i watch it like a hawk though. when i go in to do something i'm not really in there for very long. mabye 10 15 min. if its anything over that ill probbaly stash it in the bushes or on the patio of where i am.
    its not that bad (like someone's gonna steal it) where i work. i do have people come up to me after they realize what it is and give me the interrigation. but most of them are nice and ask where i got it from and will i build them one. (i dont think it would be too safe for the 'little old ladies though' im talking about 60-70 year olds wanting one)

    actually the funny thing is.... i live where i work less than like 300 ft from the office so i have my car parked by the house for storage and i just walk to the pool shop i keep my bike in and go the office every morning. but its not like i only put 4 or so miles on the bike a day. this is just the new job. at my old complex i did the same thing but the office to the shop back to the office was a mile round trip... so i could rack up a good 40 miles a day... this bike has come in extremely handy. expecely since the company pays for the gas ( i just use the weedeater gas (lol) its like 1/2 gallon and they said it was ok) and i just bought a odometer so i can charge milage. win win.

    Friggin' hilarious!!

    Dude, this is all so crazy. I was at my friend's apartment yesterday & someone said, "Too bad you don't have your bike... that's the perfect way to take out the trash." Then it evolved into charging the customers, then into just dealing directly with the apartment complex.

    There's prolly a good chunka change in this... and a free apartment perhaps? Prolly not a free apartment, but there's gotta be a good discount.
