    well, well...y'all hung in there and the place looks great!

    without re-hashing the politics, i'm quite proud to see we've made a difference...i see EPA-compliant happy-times on the way and i see industry leaders honestly listing engine size...it's good to see the consumer is still running the place & having a positive impact.

    what have i been up to?

    motorized bicyle racing!!!

    dennis at Golden Eagle Bike Engines and i have co-founded the Motorized Bicycle Racing Association. we have a small site going and will soon have an official site with support forum (the MBRA forum will be for members only and will not be in competition with MBc)...the 1st "official" MBRA event will be participation in "world of speed 2008" at the bonneville slat flats in september. my personal goal is 50mph with a single-speed 32cc 2-stroke (gebe/tanaka 'purefire')

    in an effort to further the movement and keep it going in the proper direction, MBRA will have strict rules for membership, the most important being EPA and C.A.R.B. compliance & a 48cc maximum confirmed displacement.

    see the temporary MBRA site (in my signature) for more info.

    you won't see a lot of activity from me here, but i felt it was appropriate to let y'all know what i've been up to...again, i'm proud to see MBc thriving, & i'm proud to have had a part in it's success :cool:

    Hello, Augidog.
    I think you left here just about the time I joined up. So we don't know each other. But I've seen a lot of your posts. And I was impressed with the things you had to say and your determination to keep the info here manageable.

    It's good to see a new post from you. And good luck with the motored bike racing. (I think I'll content myself with being a spectator)

    Hi augi and welcome back. It's funny how it now takes 15 people to do what you and just three others used to do here. I hope we can do it half as well as you did. Best of luck with the MBRA group. If anyone can make it work you can. I look forward to your contributions again. It does look weird seeing junior member next to your name.

    it just goes to show...you can always count on a warm welcome at MBc :-|

    i'll gladly serve a hot coffee or a cold brew to anyone wants to come up this way and get it :p

    if i cover too much of the frame, i risk being bumped up into the streamliner class...more stringent safety standards and much higher speeds to compete against...no, i think i'm just gonna give her a nice paintjob (how's mopar lime-green sound?) and fab a small fairing to get the slipstream around my knees & shoulders :cool:

    woke up this morning all fired up to start fine-tweaking my HP carby...
    looks like i'll have to hope for sunshine this afternoon :eek:
