New member thread

I’m looking for a generic thread for new members. Could have swore I read it here before I joined....had info such as common tools to buy, places to buy things, parts that most old peds should have replaced...hell I don’t remember what else, but it seemed like plenty of little things a new guy like me would need to know. I’ve seen the wiki page with some of the how-to articles, but I’m not finding the thread I originally read. Anyone know what I’m talking about?

Any chance there’s a dictionary on here for common moped terms? Took me awhile to figure out what a variator was, seen a few other terms or acronyms I’m not sure of...really don’t want to be the guy constantly asking “hey, what’s that mean?”

I’d appreciate any help

Are you talking about Fred's Guide? https://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Fred's_Guide

Re: New member thread

I don’t think Fred’s guide is what I’m remembering....but I think it probably has all the info (plus much more) than the thread I’m referring to.

My memory is for shit though, just tell me I’m “mis-remembering “ and I’ll go with it.

Thanks

Hi Skip ! I’m seeing a lot of new Army recruits here, of which I am one. This is a good thread for those of us who don’t want to wear out our welcome with basic basic questions-

although these people are gracious and welcoming and eternally kind with REALLY good advice. Like get back on a bicycle first for excellent moped practice. I sure will !!!! I’m seeing more women and not young ones either here !! Good for us, dammit. I’m going to quote Dirty30Dillon here because it’s a brilliant and hilarious statement:

“Ride a stupid ass moped to work even though you know it won’t make it.” That’s good stuff, man.
