Don't we all wish you would
All? Plenty don't care I imagine
Forgive me I meant those you dislike so much who ride e-bikes for whatever reason that needs no qualification by anyone.
I have no earthly use for one because I can exceed 20 kmh on the level under my own steam
You'd better be careful as another 5kph and you'll be an uncontrolable danger to the public
Actually I do know what I am talking about a bit for I have been inconvenienced by speeding criminals on e-bikes
Who are much less a threat to public welbeing than 'motons'
Hope someone can explain simply why e-bikes are not about going faster, is the motor expensive ballast maybe?
For most people they're about convenience,for a myriad of reasons,where they wouldn't otherwise use a bicycle and perhaps would choose a car!
Though that reasoning appears to have bounced of your nut and has already been explained up thread by me.
I think Ivor is close to the truth, an e-bike is not a bike
Ivor may already be the engine ringing his.....
Alternative facts welcome
