Thank you john! You say you are a trained Chimp, well buddy, get ready to evolve!
Don't get me wrong, 2005 - 2011 (working on auto diesel and motorcycle engines) is not what makes me an expert, my time @ PocketbikePlanet + two tech degree's (almost) and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, coupled with a love of Helping out, and an understanding of the frustration involved with learning DOES! (I have a bit of dyslexia) <--thanks mom hahaha just kidding! so needless to say math tests are NOT fun!
No Animator I have ever met, and no mechanic I have ever met, can do both things better than me, are there better artists? YES, are there WAY better mechanics YES! There are some right here on this forum!
(StrayDawg "Brady" .... I remember you gave me some of the first help I ever got on here!) <---Thank you! even if it's 6 years late!
This forum is going to make other forums sad, maybe we will branch out and do a dirt bike section, or a full size bike section, but one thing is "For Sure"
Check back often, and save those dollars $$$ for parts for a silly little bike that is the most fun on earth!
I am arranging things so I get to work right out of the house (mostly) <--means I'm almost always within "Ear-Shot" of users needing help! and I have usually two or three hours a day to do fun things to help you guys out, plus, the orange bike is a birthday present for a friend of 15+ years! so it was going to happen anyhow, all I had to do was snap some pictures.
Thanks again, for being a user, for asking questions, for inspiring me, and for already helping out so much!
Time to add 10x this much text to all those pretty pictures.
