    I would assume a bike license is not required? it has to be under 50cc!

    It's actually done on power output rather than cc.
    But I believe a car license is all that is needed for this.
    I would have to check .

    Usually 1kilowatt / 50cc is my understanding, but as a practical measure, it also requires that it not be able to exceed 55km. So even if it is under 1kw if it can go faster than 55km then it is supposed to be on a Class 6 license (Motorcycle) .

    First set of leathers worn on the Britten at the IOM. At one stage dug out of the rubble of the Christchurch earthquake.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    History for sure. Right there.

    You surely have to have a partial lobotomy to partake in the IOM. Ye gods some of the video footage is insane. Thinking at the speed of light

    Anyone else running an ebike? Gets a fair few places, early days however
    Buddy invited me for a 77km ride around Puhoi - used his wife's ebike. Conclusion? Normal bikes are dead. They just don't know it yet.

    Saw an ad for one yesterday ...$10999...!!!!And a mate has bought a different one for around $6000. Here I am thinking "I would love one but..." and here is the "but"...I can buy a brand new motorbike for $8000 actually the two I was looking at were a Sol Apollo at $7990 and the other a Soco TC Maxx.....The Apollo is brand new copy of the Honda GB400 and the Soco is fully electric and NOT a scooter...(100km+ speed and range about 120km?) With E bikes costing more than this I think they will remain too pricy for what I want to do with them...

    I ended up buying a Suzuki gsx600 Katana instead - deal too good to say no to.
