Re: Taking your MB inside, an Arizona incident.
This illustrates one of the advantages of riding an eBike instead of a gas bike. I feel a lot more comfortable taking my eBike inside businesses, than I did my gas bike.
For instance, last time I got a haircut I walked my bike inside the barber shop. I recently took my bike inside the H&R block office when I got my taxes done. I take my bike inside my kung fu school. I've gone on group rides with bicyclers where 20 to 30 bikes end up at a bar, and they allow us to bring out bikes inside, so I take my eBike in too, with no problems. They also allow eBikes in commuter trains.
As a matter of fact this was one of my main reasons for moving away from gas bikes. They're too limited, eBikes enjoy more freedom..
