What will tree huggers come up with next?

Recommended Posts

I just hate the ugly looks they have! I want a motorcycle not an off-road moped! I want to hear the engine running and the exhaust. These stupid little boys toys just CAN'T offer that!!!

im sorry but none of those will ever be on the same level a a motocross bike. not even one produced in the 90's....no gears, no clutch, no noise...pfff no fun

ill buy one though when hell freezes over. i for one am not worried about global warming cause ill most likely be gone by then. if not, hey i love boats

Did anyone read the comment about the guy that wanted a law to be able to shoot harley riders with paintball guns?!? even if it is sarcasm, i'd like to tie that guy with a tree and no shirt on and just drill him in the belly with a paintball gun 🙂

Really though, this wouldn't even instantly open up a bunch of new areas for you to ride in. All the sign posts say "no motorized vehicles", not "no gas burning bikes". So really all you get is a quiet bike.... that sucks....

Now what is cool if you can have electric sound effects like the powerwheels motorcycles at Toys R Us. You can choose 2 stroke or 4 stroke noises...no more arguing.......All joking aside I hope they can make a competative bike some day comparable to the gas bikes.......Just think we can ride in closed areas and no one will hear that we are there.

I also just read an article on the first electric air plane....it can fly for 4 hours on a full charge......you have to charge it for 8 hours or so but you electric bill impact is only 80 cents.....The technology is coming it is only a matter of time.

I personally HATE HATE HATE Harleys to hell and back!!!:banghead: I just cant stand those loud, ubnoctious, noisy, annoying peices of junk!!!:ride:🙂 YES, they may be made in the US, but who the :D cares when they go flying past my house at 3 a.m. in packs of 30 to 40! They dont have baffles and they think they can "get on it" wherever they please. :banghead: I would most likely enjoy shooting down some Harley riders. or mabey I should put I retractable spike strip down on the road, and when I hear them coming. I can strech it out :worthy:

what? that seems a little low since power is 9 cents a kilowatt(I think):D

I think it is far less expensive then gas as energy but the cost is going to come from the battery dying every couple of years. They need to throw a ton of money into quick charge long service life and weight and size reduction R&D before this is really going to take off, I am with you though, you can sound like a 2T then a train then jetsons car (or is that the stock sound:busted: ) then drag racer or a semi truck.🙂 switch to this when driving on the free way... bet you wont get cut off then:lol:

:worthy: Everytime one of those things drives by and wakes up my 8 month old son I get pretty pissed off. Of course it's not just them. There's the fools with the bass that rattles the whole house. There are a lot of inconsiderate people out there.

Sorry, that was off topic. He started it.:banghead:

Wow, that was the lamest test I have ever seen. If you don't know anything about testing than I suppose it makes the electric bike look good. Different riders, different weights, different skills....come on! And who's the squid they got riding "the legendary YZ?" Motocross champion? dude crashes into a fence going straight?

On the jump contest, the guy who hit the corner jumped further than the bonehead who had a straight on shot off the track. Why didnt they measure that?

That bike has a Rock Shox Boxxer mountain bike fork on it thats built for a 50-60 lb downhill mountain bike, on that 140lb elec bike any serious air and that fork is going to snap! They would have been better off with a Marzocchi DH fork.

I can see this being a decent trail bike for those closed to gas bike trails, but I would never take one on MX track.

Agree

They say theres nothing on 2 wheels thats louder than a motocross bike and its also smelly. Hell, i love the sound and smell of 2-strokes and that yz250f is a lot quiter stock than a piped 2-stroke. What a sorry ass piece of shit for a bike.
