Has anyone tried to commute or drive in city center with the motoseat? Is it seen as illegal motorbike or as a bicycle?
Damn, I have so many storys about that hahaha.. Well the police seems always like they would love to stop me with all my dirtbikegear on, pedaling with 20 kph near by them haha but they never act fast enough. The good thing is they can´t follow me through the city where all the pedastrians are with their big mercedes. I would not risk it to ride through the city with a moto seat like I did. I always stay at the landscape.
Edit: Once I rode it through the next big city and the police saw me while they passed me in their team-bus, like the big police car where more then 5 people fit inside. The drive looked at me like that guy
(the same like everyone does when they see me with my bike haha
).. I immediately went into a sidewalk behind a truck where they couldn´t see me and waited there for like 5 minutes. After 2-3 minutes I heared the sirenes of tha police, passing by. After some time I started laughing really hard and went home again lol
Conclusion: Do not ride above 25km/h, don´t act nervous when they see you and always have a password-mode activated so they couldn´t make it faster in case they do stop you. + Always check that your pas-system works. As long as its not accellerating super-fast, they can not make it faster by their own and you have to pedal in case of a controller, shit should be fine. Anyway I always try to not get controlled as Im still not sure if they would say its cool or if its not safe enough for the street. Oh and then you are 100% safe if your displays doesn´t show a voltage above 48volts because at least in germany you would need some special tests (I think at least as a company), if you want to use that as its "high voltage" and "super dangerous" (bs).
