    That QuietKat machine looks great. The trailer attached is going to make that a winning machine for sure. Looks like the trailer can carry 150+ pounds. Happy Hunting!

    Ran across this in Austin today while retrieving a front fork I left at beginning of Covid in ATX.
    The operator was describing being turned into a few days before. We compared stories from a distance and Q&A about each other’s bikes... I was on the GSA.

    Very cool machine and a perfect urban warrior. He had done a few minor mods going with the larger knobbies. Not a cheap entry level e-bike, but I would love to try one.

    I will have to take a look when I get to a full screen John. A quick look shows a Panasonic battery and a “crankset” drive. Both features I feel as important.
    Thanks

    I just received my QuietKat last week. I haven't ridden it much yet, only a few miles. Realized really quickly that I needed a bigger seat which I ordered immediately and arrived yesterday. Much more comfortable with the new seat.
    Carried a few 50# bags of corn on the trailer, really didn't feel it back there. Only thing that makes any noise is the rear fender, did some adjusting and added a small piece of rubber around one of the rails on the rear rack and noise is gone.

    This is the QuietKat Ranger 1000

    I live on a small 'farm" but don't have livestock. I am surrounded by ag farms. I feed the deer to keep them coming to my property

    Yes. I don't hunt over the feeder and actually rarely hunt deer on my property BUT like to keep the does well fed so they come back every day. November brings in the bucks looking for a new sweetheart

    Simon Cowell accident

    Things happen, so no judgement... he owns it. Hoping for a full recovery

    Mentioned is the idea that this model is closer to an E-Motorcycle
