Bob, I'm somewhere between an Ebiker & an E moto guy.
I grew up on (sic.) Gas Mopeds and Bicycles.
Without going into a rant about my displeasure with Government cash grabs,
I want to avoid fees associated with a Motorcycle.
In Ontario we have low speed motorcycles, *70kph*
limit (scooters,mopeds) taxed & insured @ a lower rate than full size motorcycles.
Ebikes of course have no fees.
Motorcycles must maintain 12mth insurance.
, but have a 9 month riding season if extremely lucky.
So I continue to build mild outlaw Ebicycles.
I still have pedals & a "500w" motor, all legal like
I may be pushing the boundary appearance/performance wise, with this build, but in my town,
cops have more pressing issues.
Unless you ride like a twat on the sidewalk @50+kph.
A future build will be licensed as a low speed moto, but will be an outlaw bike as well.
I likely wont go more than 100kph, but having plates will allow me to build something more moto looking.
Remaining unbothered by the Po Po.
Something like a Enertrac powered Kikker Hardknock,
or a pitbike like Hobbit posted on the previous page.
So lets call me an Escooterist, E ped, E Mod, etc..
I never understood the desire people have for 800lbs motorcycles, or 4000lbs cars.
I always went for the lighter vehicles, that I find more fun to drive.(miata, VW rabbit, Honda Civic, mopeds, etc)
Anyways I ramble.
