yellow-dog4570815dYeah, big part of why i want to do an electric swap on a honda in the summer
Fast-Nop2196215dYeah I got my biking style totally ruined when I was abroad in France for half a year where there where two options. Style coulé (fluent driving), and style extrêmement coulé (extreme brainless speeding).
zymk106615dOMG Yes!!! I'm down in southern california. I live out in Riverside county, have to commute to Orange County everyday. In a car with "lighter than normal traffic" approx. 2-2.25h one way! I was basically having to pull 14 hour days because of traffic. (I'd stay late to try and wait for the traffic to die down so my drive would be 50 minutes when commuting in non-peak hours.)
It was starting to really affect me because of the lack of sleep I was getting and messing with my marriage a great deal because I wasn't really around the house often enough to help. When I was home I was usually passed out onnthe couch.
glad to finally be riding a bike again! (I was in an accident like 3 years ago and the wife was pretty serious about no more motorcycles) I was able to convince her to let me get an old fat-man cruiser bike. ('Cause I'm old and fat and really don't have any business being on sportbikes anymore lol.)
I went from a 2003 GSX-R1000, to a harley street bob.
Have fun riding!
Nanos870115dI'm reminded when I used to cycle to work, 45 minutes, or 4 hours by bus on a bad day.
Of course 45 minutes usually included half a dozen life threatening situations only saved by lightning reflexes, luck, or careful risk management assessment..
Where as the bus route, only includes 1 or two life threatening situations to worry about..
netikras1904915dI so agree!!
Except I can't really afford a bike rn as I don't have where to keep it and parking in an already severely overcrowded post-soviet yard is too risky [blocks of 5-stores buildings have 5-6 parking spots each].
Hence I've switched to electric energy. Got an e-scooter as a gift from my wife. The time diff is not that big when compared with a car [diesel: 30-40min, electric: 30min], but it's far more fun and cheaper! I mean you cannot refuel your diesel tank at your workplace, but you can easily charge your scooter!
I wish we was allowed things like that here.
I did ponder these once:
> Jumping boots
> Sedmimílové skákací boty na Nově
> This man can run 25 MPH!! 🏃 -
> The Bionic Boots - Worlds Fair Nano SF 2017
> Russian Rocket Boots 3 - Speed Test
The Russian one is diesel powered, so again not road legal here.
I wonder if it would be legal to have an electric version, of a hydrogen fuel cell version ?
