it might not be true for this one yet, but were still small, i have been trying to spread the word on Kawasaki forums and stuff, but we need more people! i know there are loads of riders out there, but we need to grow a bit.

Some meets this summer or something would be lots of fun.

Patience... that's all we need... these forums grow at a slow pace then one day BAM!!! they take off. We just have to be patient.

If you build it, they will come. Has a lot to do with the weather. Forums in MI slow down a lot in the winter.

Absolutely. I have great faith in this forum.

i've sent pm's to people on other forums that live in michigan about 2wheel michigan. would it be a modification if i changed my 75 watt bulb to a 100 watt or went with a floresent bulbs?

Going to 100 is too much for a noob, only if you are experienced... I think a 60 is plenty of power. I don't know why every noob wants a 100...

but if i use the floresent bulb it would only draw about 52 watts ;D

That's plenty for the use you want... you are not illuminating a field...

Why do I think I've read this before about something else.
