Illegal (unless registered) and rather stupid, really.

I note it has pedals and a chain ring... but no chain.

While it might have a fancy two pot hydraulic disc brake from a (small) motorcycle at the rear, it only has two very small bicycle disc brakes at the front - where you really need good brakes.

If I was going to mess around with those sort of electrics, I'd just get this:

How about this for an electric trike? 22,000 watts of raw POWER! 

Electric trike? Really?

Door to door you must have ridden over a hundred kilometres today Kelvin - that's a half a randonee ...

Padawan Kelvin, your training is nearly complete ;)

Great ride, very good workout, beats going to be gym. The breakfast at Cafe Marmalade just top off a great morning ride.

Anytime Terry! The Southerners are still unfamiliar with the red capsules on the road so maybe that contributes to the wide and gentle passes. The hills only make the ride more memorable ;)

Thanks Melvyn (i think!) for guiding us northerners this morning on our southside ramble. It was a great ride, but the hills really hurt! I thought the cars were excellently behaved as well, wide passes, no agro and patience when required.

I intend to now be horizontal for most of the afternoon, I am trying to convince my daughters to feed me grapes now and again, but so far unsuccessfully!

I have been watching this guys JaYoe adventures and really enjoying them .

Although my greatest dream is to travel NZ's South island on a trike in August when I grow up.

What an adventure, around the world in 5 years on a trike, including trekking up Mount Everest.
