Did you expect to encounter a cyclist who would be a challenge to your motor bicycle. This reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where Kramer takes a kid's karate class and you guess it = DOMINATES!1!

You realise that your weird road rage issues are definately not "helping" the community. People usually don't like cyclist on the road- and now thanks to the Chinese we have again empowered American white trash to get reckless, get in the way and just f*ck it up all nice and good for the rest of us who don't instantly turn the public highway into a Russian circus bears extravaganza for $150.
And If your "continual amazement" concerning the human body versus the small yet mighty 80cc internal combustion engine continues don't be surpirse when you run into a tree 'cause you're not paying attention to the road. Or a car-head on.
Just imagine what that will feel like. And then imagine a life spent in a fully motorized wheelchair!
You can race people who actually walk and then toot your little horn!
