I noticed ,even though it has no affect on the motor after I get the bike going I still find myself pedaling every place I go. The only time I do not pedal is when I going down hill I tried not pedaling but if feel much more in control when I do. It also feels as if the motor is working harder when I'm not pedaling ,even though I know it isn't. Granted when going under 15 M.P.H. pedaling helps but I'm talking when I'm doing 20 + mph. Does anyone else feel in more control when pedaling or is it just me and my abbey normal brain ? ?
