thank you for that !How hypocritical. As a group riders tend to be the first to ***** about it when the government tries to implement new laws governing our speed or behaviour. Yet because so many of you seem to have a hard on for ebikes, it is now magically perfectly acceptable for the government to do the very things you all ***** about. So many also complain about , (targeted), enforcement, (for say sport bikes), yet you insist upon a crack down because they are a group you despise!!!
One rider, complains about the ebikes using the "bike lanes", yet feels justified in using them on his bike "as long as no cyclist are around".... Talk about hypocritical.
Then many go on and on about how the owners are all, either convicted, Impaired drivers, (we don't have DUI in Canada), or scofflaws, who shouldn't be on the road, yet ***** when the general public generalizes "All sport bike riders" What is good for one is just as good for the other.
As one person so wisely pointed out once the ebikes hit a "critical mass", (just as happened with say pirated satellite signals), the government WILL step in and enact some form of legislation. Given Doug's insistence on smaller gov't, I doubt he will be rushing to implement new rules and restrictive rules.
