    So if anyone wants their very own motorized hoverboard thingy, looks like they're a deal of the day on amazon... (and yes, I will mercilessly make fun of you for owning one if you buy it.) Interesting point is the top speed is 12.5 mph, which I think contributes to the fact I haven't found the MVT rider who uses this to be annoying.

    My favorite Q&A on it:

    Q: Can I pop a wheelie on this model?
    Answer: Chuck Norris can.

    For a paltry $1299, you will soon be able to get one that'll do 16mph! And it (probably) won't set your house on fire...

    Do you apply this logic to cargo ebikes? Most loaded cargo ebikes can't get above 15mph and the load is usually kids. So those should be forced on to streets? Or parents toting kids should just drive?

    And what about crossing the river (or other situations where the only way to get from A to B is either trail or VERY busy road)?
