Default Re: Are we "Bikesters"?

motorbikes and motorbikers is always the easy way to write it, but I avoid those terms just exactly for that reason- the lay person immediately just assumes it refers to motorcycles.

Moped used to be more analogous, except it now more means "scooters" as well in modern terminology,

even though I think of my bikes mostly like mopeds- except much lighter and that roll and pedal better-
from the start my goal was to use the most modern cycling technology that still gave me a certain level of practricality for the urban/suburban small trips I use them for-

and I think a TOTAL improvement over the old moped, except for the unfortunate increase in sound.

I just usually write "motorized bike" but cringe with all the keystrokes.
