EXACTLY BP. I ride mine like a motorcycle except to start it. Clutch pads are cheap and easy to replace. I'm too old and out of shape to pedal my fat arse around. I have had to pedal home once or twice with breakdowns. Then REST for a couple hours before fixing the problem. SO NO, I DON'T PEDAL!!!
IT'S YOUR BIKE, RIDE IT YOUR WAY.
