Thread: Electric bikes gone wild

    That thing will go 60 mph, and with some tweaking some think up to 80 mph. Sheesh!

    That article must be using old data claiming that in the US, bikes are only 750W machines. There are 3000W machines now and I'm sure that will also go up.
    The motorcycle models are no joke

    I was on a rail-trail with the ATV recently. There were 2 Quite Kats rolling along quite nicely through the dirt, bumps and grades of the trail.
    Very impressive.

    With the current thread concerning H-Dís business model changes and such, thought this odd timing today.

    That's a good looking bike.

    The Honda dealer in the town where I grew up also sold Schwinn bicycles. He would excuse himself from the Honda customers to talk to bicycle shoppers, especially around Christmas. Those bicycle guys paid his bills on a more regular basis.

    If you have not ridden one of the new electric bicycles you will be pleasantly surprised. My wife took one around the parking lot and said "load it up". Spent more money on that than I did a lot of my early motorcycles.

    That looks like the same bike a guy on another forum just bought.

    Here's just one of many deer that I carried back to the truck with my bike and trailer.
    This bike is a game changer for me as far as hunting is concerned. Put 250 miles on it this hunting season!
