Default Re: Why did you put a motor on your bike?

After I retired from my real job, I got re-employed as an aide in my wife's office. Sharing the same work schedule would be convenient, right? Nope. Wife worked WAY past quitting time as a secretary. Tiring of waiting 90 minutes to go home, I tried walking 5 miles home. Took 105 minutes of pain. So I bought a new bike, which took 45 minutes of sweat to commute each way. I electrified it, which cut commuting time to 25 minutes, than gassified it.

Like many, I saw those old ads a a boy, wanted one and 50 years later, I have them.

In Hawaii, the loud, fast moped is the rage.

I'd rather be different.
