Default Re: becoming frightened by these bikes

wherever one lives, it is the nature of legislators that when something catches their attention and they aren't getting registration/license/use tax/etc. out of it, they will pass laws that get them those things

if these all start looking like motorcycles, then they may get treated like motorcycles which will be the end of cheap trans for all and the end of the $100 or so a week I get in repairs

VA says I'm 'catastrophically disabled' and gives me $300/month, but I can still manage a few hours a day at this if I work carefully - but the work has to be there, which it won't be if these get legislated into the hands of the wealthy hobbyists
