    I've been thinking of putting a "Drafting Welcome" sign on my back on my daily e-bike commute. Would that go over well do you think?

    Yeah, I suspect it would. Certainly I'd love it!

    Even if my bike could cruise that fast, which it canít, I certainly couldnít do it on any of the trail sections of my commute. The CCT is in such shitty condition that, above about 15mph, itíll rattle the fillings out of your teeth.

    Ohio passes PeopleForBikes ebike law making 11 states, New Jersey next. The article indicates they're hoping to persuade legislators to introduce the legislation in Maryland and Virginia next year.

    That's an electric motorcycle - it doesn't even have pedals. Unless Harley Davidson has come full circle and is making bicycles again, 100 years later.

    LOL Zero motorcycles has a major product announcement coming out next month... and they already have a model (the SR) with blistering performance (0-60 in 3.3 seconds) for 16K. And plenty of cheaper models. That Harley nameplate had better be made of ten ounces of solid gold!

    I'll scoop my beard and oxygen tank up out of the way to check for you after I run your ass over.

    If it isn't dripping a stream of oil behind it and deafening everyone in the vicinity, is it still a Harley?

    NOVA Parks is proposing changing regulations to better define what an e-bike is and allow them on trails. Meeting on February 7th, which will be followed by a public comment period.
