    hey guys and gals, my name is dan and i live in country nsw australia, got into the motored bike scene due to a lack of a licence and the need to get around with ease.
    had my bike setup for nearly 3 months now and it keeps evolving. will try and get some pic up of my ride lthough its not very interesting.
    i am using a kit i bought from ebay consisting of a Grubee skyhawk 48cc engin which is yet to be modified.(any help or knowledge about this motor would be great)
    my msn is if your close or wanna chat about anything. looking forward to being part of the gang...
    talk to ya soon. dan

    welcome aboard, dan.

    Always room for one more. It seems that the Australians have been multiplying like rabbits around here lately. You'll hear from some of the others soon, no doubt.

    i have never ridden or driven anything whilst drinking or when drunk. not having a licence was a personal choice. my reasons are my own but i refuse to drive a car. had nothing to do with the law.

    Good for you, Dan!

    I'd like to be auto free myself. It's not do-able and probably never will be. But I at least ride pedal and motor bikes an awful lot. I have them rigged up to carry some pretty good loads. And so I'm able to minimize the auto miles, anyway.

    But this world needs more people who decline the car completely.

    Hey Dan..ENO (East Coast NSW)..Welcome to MBc..There are plenty of Aussies around..Go to thread "Aussie Roll Call" and youll most likely find someone close..this is a great site for getting your bike built..Always use SEARCH and youll get anything you need..Lots of experienced USA guys who know their business and always jump in to help. Good luck..enjoy the build and post some pics...Use "Free Thumbnails" freeware to minimise your pics to 600/600 so the attachment accepts them..See Ya ENO
