    Yesterday I had to go into the city. Some yoyo on a E-bike was riding with a full size Rottweller sitting on the floor boards of the bike. First of all I consider an E-bike a dangerous piece, most of them can not make it across an intersection before the stop lights change colour and a adult looks plain stupid on them.

    Around where I live a guy rides a pink scooter all the time. Even on the 4 lane highway that has a posted speed limit of 45 MPH and he can not keep up. He is always causing traffic problems. I wonder at times if his luck will run out and ends up getting knocked off of it... These are the same people who do not have a problem going to Starbucks and buying a six dollar cup of coffee and then complaining that gas is so expensive.....:nosad

    "a adult looks plain stupid on them"

    I dont think thats a fair comment. Its about the ride. At some time in my life I wont be able to handle my bike anymore. When that time comes I too will consider getting an Ebike.

    I do agree about the safety aspect. I have seen people do all sorts of crazy maneuvers on these things and I thinks COPS should start handing out fine to anyone who does not follow the rules.

    I saw a guy on one of those little scooters riding down the road carrying an 8 or 10 foot long 2x4. One hand on the bars and one holding the 2x4.

    Scary. That shows the complete lack of common sense that some people that we share the highway with, have. :(
