    Default Electric bike or not want?

    So there are becoming so many options in electric bikes. Even HD has jumped on the band wagon...

    I don't think they work well in lost of our area, but if you lived in the city and didn't really leave the city... maybe like in AA, and definately it would work in a place like LA or NYC.

    What say you?

    I like loud smelly gas burning motorcycles, and I lament what appears to be their inevitable demise.

    And electric bikes are kick ass. Instant on. Acceleration is insane. Isle of Man this year they had ridiculous average speeds. I'm an internal combustion engine guy myself and I love the sound of the R1 when it's spooled up railing through the mountains like an F1 car but I wouldn't mind having an electric bike as a second bike. For around town bullshit and commutes it would be killer. I'm seriously considering getting a Chevy Volt for that very reason. Zero gas? Yes please. $0.03 a mile to charge it? Yes please. No offense Gasman but gas money is money I could spend on tires, track days, rides in the mountains, suspension, etc. etc. And if we all go electric and put you out of a job then Moe and I will write you a reference letter. Maybe you can get into bean farming - the pre-gas production end of things.
