    I need to get my wife on her first motorized bike so she can see how much fun it is. It will need to be quiet and sedate. A small 4 stroke kit on a 26 inch cruiser would be the way to go I think. I will probably build one for myself as well if she can tolerate it. What's the best engine setup for this type of ride?

    We are in Thousand Oaks and I have had many motorcycles and A Classic Whizzer or 2. Always too loud or too fast for her.

    I am currently building a Sportsman 200 for myself as well.

    In no way do i want to discourage you, but the most likely outcome is that your wife will ride it once and then decide that the time could have been better spent at a coffee shop with her girlfriends discussing reality TV, fashion, and singing competitions like X-factor, America's got talent etc.

    I've seen this happen before.
    At the end of the day the result will be that you'll feel unwanted and neglected and sidelined because your wife (after one ride) will show no interest in a hobby that gives you so much enjoyment.

    From my experience in life i've found that women want 4 things

    1) A mirror, for self adoration of her own image and to reinforce delusional concepts of her personal self worth.
    2) A multitude of clothing apparel and accessory options like shoes and jewelry.
    3) A never ending amount of of massively overvalued cosmetics to boost her feeling of self worth, which feeds back into No 1
    4) A best "g.a.y male" friend to discuss everything that is wrong with her relationship and everything that is wrong with you and options to finding a better man.

    A motorized bicycle is the furthest thing on her mind - a bit like living in the North Pole with out a television and a mirror and cosmetics.

    Hi dadzers
    I invite you to come on out the SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event this
    Saturday October 20th and check out all the bikes and meet a lot of
    the local motorized bike guys and gals.
    It's a fun event.

    It's as much of a bike show and meet with a collection of custom builds
    that you won't find anywhere else.

    I would recommend a 50 cc 4G 4 stroke kit from Bicycle-Engines.com or a
    small 35 cc 4 stroke friction drive from Staton-Inc.com

    dadzers, we apologise for fabian.

    Ever since fabian had an unfortunate "Richard Gere" incident
    with an echidna he really hasn't been quite the same and has
    these awkward outbursts.
    I am assured that the very best in Aussie medical help is being
    utilized to remove the echidna from his nether regions so fabian
    may be back to as normal as an Aussie can be.
    We tolerate fabian here so once again pay him no mind..... :D

    I suppose none of you know the original Aussie chat up line? "Brace yerself, Sheila!"

    I thought it was a platypus, anyway, Fabian. Or was that a separate incident?

    As for building a bike for a probably uninterested wife, I'd take her along to a social event, so she can at least meet other MB widows.

    Not sure that i'm allowed to say this, and i have no problems and don't hold anything against the moderators if they delete this post,


    when one of my ex-girlfriends asked me to be more like one of her g.a.y male friends, i took the opportunity to settle the argument. That night i decided to work with her argument.
    I said "Brace yerself, Sheila!" when i decided to place it in the other pipe.

    To say that she was mighty cranky with events was an understatement, but my response was - "you asked me to be more like your g.a.y male friend"

    I never heard any more about it after that incident ;-)

    I guess it is good I don't know what abbreviations and buzzwords mean.
    The 50 cc idea sounds like a winner.
    I will say this- a long time ago, I told my motorcycle riding wife to NEVER slow down for railroad tracks.
    One day while riding, I looked back and she wasn't right behind me- I saw her hands fly upward as she was rear-ended by a car as they crested the tracks.
    She went into a ditch and not hurt much, thank God.
    After that, my view is that women and motorcycles are a bad mix.
    You just have to be so much more aware of everything around you than a normal driver and a real defensive rider to survive.

    Fabian, holy c.r.a.p!That is the most accurate and funny description of the majority of women I've ever heard!I'm going on an assumption that MBR is still too young to have gotten a good steel-toe to the nether regions (I apologize if I'm wrong MBR), also the best come back for someone blowing hot air around a forum I've ever heard was "did you hear something Mildred, Naaa it's just the wind whistling".

    Oh yeah,... advise.I'd suggest a GEBE with a robin-subaru EH035 or the Honda GX35.

    :grin5: I think MBR may either live estranged from his wife or he has the perfect marriage or girlfriend - a woman that shows a man some respect.

    I'm not into ad hominem attacks, but i'll call it as it is when someone is blowing hot air around a tent, and that's as far as it needs to go.

    I've had a fair degree of life experience with women and have a comprehensive understanding of female psychology, which i've used to very good effect in the past.
    MBR may not have had as much life experience with attractive (smoking hot) women as i have, for i've always have a weakness for attractive women, but the more attractive a woman is, the more they fit into the category that i've described above, not to mention being at ever increasing risk of serious discombobulation, whilst trying to negotiate their way through life and relationships.

    Most men don't understand how the program works when it comes to women, especially when women are trying to f*#k you over - the most effective way to demoralise your enemy is to employ the same methods that they have at their disposal, which is to weaponise your psychology..
    Men tend to use brute force; throwing things around a room and making a lot of noise, but women try to grind you down slowly, sapping your energy to live and to find any happiness in the relationship or life. There is a whole landscape out there of men living in soul destroying relationships, but it doesn't have to be that way.

    Men can take back control of their relationships and make their partners life a living h.e.l.l :devilish:

    The most terrifying weapon I have against mine is to nod, smile, let her worry what happens next. Be polite, it worries them to death.

    Ludwig, you don't understand how the program works. I would say that virtually "all" smoking hot women either work in the modelling industry or have friends who work in the modelling/entertainment industry.
    These women (for whatever reason) seem to have a group of g.a.y male friends who give them the worst relationship advise you can imagine, mostly by supporting their loopy ideas; especially when these women feel vengeful; the more attractive they are the more vengeful their caustic hearts become, particularly when they don't get their way "all the time".

    The silent treatment doesn't work, because after they've berated you without any reaction on your behalf, they storm out of the house to plot your downfall or death with their girlfriends and worst of all, their g.a.y friends.

    By the time they get home, it pays to have removed all sharp objects from the house and anything that can be used as a crude weapon, like a lamp shade or a 46 inch plasma television.

    I've been there before and i've been on the receiving end of it before.

    The best form of defense to this kind of behaviour is to firewall your psychology and make their life a living h.e.l.l :devilish:

    Oh gosh, does the OP really think a woman would have any interest in a motorized bicycle :stunned:

    Just so long as she doesn't have an interest in sharp objects, it's ok. As for smokin hot, I have a thoroughly basic Mk1 Domestic, which I am now realising I should be thankful for.

    I've spent so much time trying to understand why people seek out relationships, as opposed to structured levels of living convenience: giving the impression to the outside world that you are in a relationship, though it's just a simple cash induced friends with benefits scenario, or better put, a cash to lifestyle conversion for the other party that's proportional to the amount of personal female engagement for the lifestyle financier.

    Maybe i should try to investigate the notion of getting myself a basic Mk1 Domestic model, because i've heard that these models can give terrific levels of care and compassion, whilst having a sense of love and respect for the other party.

    A comeback doesn't mean malice, but I prefer them as clever as possible coming from the "snaps" generation "your momma's so fat,...".Your thoughts on the MkI domestic, there in lies the rub, you'd need to be blind to do it, most of the,... er,...ummm not so pretty ones have the same problems you stated earlier, as a wise man once said "you're going to be made miserable, you might as well be looking at a pretty face".I just keep waiting for that grand mutation where the third sex pops up, until then I'll keep trying to flip hot l.e.s.b.i.a.n.s, cause when you do it's as close to bliss as a man can find, you both point out hot chicks to each other and NO ONE MINDS!

    ha, ha

    That's what we need: a third sex that's way hotter than the so called fairer sex "and" likes to ride motorized bicycles "and" takes an interest in a man and his extensive tool collection "and" his penchant for watching endless hours of motor sport.

    I do subscribe to your philosophy: "if you're going to be made miserable, you might as well be looking at a pretty face, and occasionally giving it a few coats" :devil2:

    Back on topic: I agree the above would be a good way to go OP......that is if you stuck around long enough to read this.
