Default Re: The moment gas bikes because obsolete

I just spent the day in the city on my gas shifter bike, with a friend on an electric (with only 24v SLA).
The electric was awesome. Start away from stop signs on a hill with ease.

Out in the country advantage goes the other way. Long open distances and high speeds are the gas forte. There is a place for each, but those categories grow slimmer as batteries get better and cheaper.

Meanwhile, my whole bike, 48cc motor and shifter jackshaft is cheaper than a replacement battery.
There is a while to go.

That's a mighty noisy bike you got there, it must haul a lot of ass?
