Mine is on hiatus.  With the $2000 engine I paid for getting lost by the freight company..... I'm screwed.  The company is offering max insurance pay out of $23.50.  Their lawyers have it sewed up to where it would cost me and the seller more than 2grand to take them to court.

Can you spell  A S S H O L E S :twisted:  :twisted:

I cant afford to spend money on something that is just fun.  Hell Im having to sell good necessities, and live with shiaty ones as it is.

A diesel tiger will get close to 100mpg at the same level of fun..  My commute is half hour each way.

It will.... I'm stubborn and patient.

If things get tougher and require me to HAVE to abandon the project the bikes will go to good hands.

yeah Im on there.  I think it is Enfield.  did you spell it right?  did you capitalize the "E"?

I left a message to see if their may be an issue on why you cant get registered.  What username you wanting to use?

If you have never administrated a board before you can not appreciate the reasoning behind the security.  Spammers, robots, register and crap your board.  It is a ROYAL PITA and lots of hard work to keep the junk off of a board.

There's a guy (or was a guy) called coachgeo on this forum who was in the process of doing it.  Don't know if he ever got there but he had done the research.

Why not search for him and his posts.
