Re: New Jersey - When is a bike not a bike?

It'd be nice if someone from NJ could contact Assemblyman Ruben J. Ramos Jr. http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/BIO.asp?Leg=293 Ask him what happened to his Bill 2581 from 2010: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2010/Bills/A3000/2581_I1.HTM STATEMENT This bill permits the use of low-speed electric bic...

Re: New Jersey - When is a bike not a bike?

I agree with most replys your scooter looks like a moped... And THAT'S the problem, right there... LOL Ya see... He called it a scooter... It's "supposed" to be an electric bike... If someone from an electric bicycle forum calls her "e-bike" a "scooter" by mistake, kinda proves the point! (You know...

Re: New Jersey - When is a bike not a bike?

Everytime I read an update about this case, the "facts" change a little.. First off it was "There was no way it could get to 20 mph", then it was, "It can go up to 20" then it was "It can't go faster than 25 and would be 'lucky' to hit 20". (I know the website says 20mph max speed... But they probab...

So I am going to be in on the group buy if I can pull my funds together in time.... I wouldn't worry about that.. We're still 100-124 short and then we still have to create the thread in the for sale section, get all the members involved to be ready to add funds, in a timely manner, (which will pro...

Watt limits are stupidiy, unless they are set at 5 hp or so.

Definitely a good thing that cop doesn't live in your town, making you deal with him daily. I lived with a target on my back for years. Did several juvie probations before it ended.

I'm also interested to hear the response you get... I think you are probably correct in that they see the bike from a distance and think it's got a gas motor, and this cop in particular is too full of himself to swallow that he made a mistake and instead tried to see if he could get you to screw up...

Good story. Let this be a lesson to all ebikes builders out there to make your bikes as stealth as possible to avoid hassle from the polices.

The area under a cop-cars door handle has all sorts of abilities to hold interesting things. Stinky things? I think he was implying, things that mysteriously end up on your person.. aka..

Re: Here is a letter I had to send out tonight... (long)

I totally disagree that you should have to build stealth, if your bike is actually legal. It's a fine line though, between standing up for your rights, and putting a big fat target on your back. Back at the station, after your complaint, the entire force will be hearing only his version. Hopefully ...
