    I thought that if an eBike’s power and speed exceed the specifications of the laws set up for them they merely automatically classify as a motorcycle and would then only require a license, permit and insurance to ride like a motorcycle does. Am i wrong?

    I live in Fla and I am 58 years old can’t get a dl.iv been looking at ebikes.fla says 750w ebike is the max for no dl.but I want a 1000w or bigger me a pedel bike is a pedel matter what.i like what you dated who is going to give you s hard time on a would have to be a get into trouble on a ebike.i like your video buddy.any coments

  3. I think laws limiting power are foolish. It outlaws bikes that would have the power to climb hills easily.. which is one of the main reasons people buy ebikes. If the assisted top speed is limited, which I think is more reasonable, then what does it matter if I have 1500W or 250W? It should be about speed and weight of the bike, not power. This also applies to the silly laws banning throttles. What does it matter if I activate my motor using my wrist/ thumb rather than my feet?

  4. Thanks for the video. The bottom line is "Don’t be a Jerk" Good advice for all, the problem is that those that need more education will not be watching these videos. On another subject, Himiway is sending me a new fork to replace the broken one I received on my bike when it arrived. CYA Bryan….

    I have wondered how my experience would be in my town as well tbh. I did not look up laws. I hardly ride anywhere that would attract a ton of attention. I still pedal if cops are anywhere near me 😂 I doubt it is necessary. The only harrassment I get is from motorists who are not as impressed by my 24mph speed on a bicycle as I am. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  6. I just purchased a Radcity 4,which will come around the end of July.I live N.C.Can a regular bike shop repair an ebike?

  7. I live in New York small town called Batavia New York in Genesee County which is like the Dukes of Hazzard County. I don’t have a driver’s license I lost it from a DWI in 1997 if I get caught driving without a license again I can go to prison. O they will be pulling me over and I don’t think they know the laws so they will probably give me a ticket because the laws just changed here in April. So cops probably don’t even know the laws here

    Thanks for another great video! Mirrors my experience over in Knoxville on my Himiway. “Just don’t be a jerk.” Is the best advice to give anyone on about any subject and really works perfect for e-bike guidelines. Of course for those worried about liability in case of an accident staying under 750watts and around 20mph could be important.

  9. Thanks for that. Seems like the same down here in Australia. For me, I hate pedaling so this is great and enjoyable compared to driving.

    Every one needs to read the constitution on the right to travel freely on the streets and road’s without a driver’s license and or registration not needed look it up on the right to travel freely in the united state

  11. Waiting for my Radcity4 delivery back order till June! They’re goin like hot cakes

    I never get a second look from the cops no matter where I am riding ? on the sidewalks or streets but my average speed I ride at is around 15mph . I live in Johnson City TN. and do most of my riding on the Tweetsie Trail a very nice scenic mountain trail that is 10 miles from end to end , 20 miles round trip

  13. According to the local police, they are aware of the situation.
    Just like any other traffic laws, You can’t say you didn’t know once you get stopped by one of them.

    on our bicycle trail, more than half of them are powered by some kind power source other than the human power(that mean including small 2 cycle engines).
    According to our local law, no powered vehicles are allowed and 10mph( I know it’s ridiculously slow, everybody seems to agree.) limit for the all bicycles on the trail.

  14. A lot of it really comes down to how "out of place" you look compared to pre-ebike times. The Radrover style ebike looks like a normal bike, just with a battery on it and probably more lights than most bikes.. but it’s still a bicycle. If you are concerned about fitting in, keep it looking like a bicycle and not a motorcycle or scooter and you’re good. And don’t go fast around pedestrians.

  15. Love it! Just a lot of tech jargon that nobody cares about. Yes, the bottom line is “don’t be a jerk”. Perfect! 👌👏👏 Great vid. 👍

    All the nubes worry about legality because almost every eBike that’s any fun is illegal for one reason or another, but the reality is nobody is ever going to ask if it’s legal or not, unless you ride like an ass.

  17. You can go to Bolton e bikes and purchase the 35 amp controller and bring your current bike up to 1200 watts for only $200

  18. If YOU keep bringing this subject up all the time things will change in a hurry. Why put all that out there for Tax collectors to look at ????? I have no idea – – ->>

    Picked up my Rover last year, mainly use it for hunting deep in the woods in public land, because it is 750 watts it’s legal on the Federal and state WMA land, great bike, like your videos, question, where did you get the mirrors?

    Great presentation. This is important information to know before buying an ebike. Each state will probably have their own rules and regulations about ebike usage. In NY, they are not allowed on the sidewalks. Must wear a helmet for Class 3 bikes. No side by side riding with another ebike. Just be safe on the road and obey traffic laws.

    With the growing popularity of electrically assisted bicycles, it’s just a matter of time before the government steps in and takes of the fun out of owning them, by enacting heavy-handed regulations, fees, taxes, etc. Enjoy it while you can. I just ordered a Ride1UP 700, and just hope the government stays out of it long enough for me to enjoy mine for a few years.

  22. Florida doesn’t require a drivers license for a 20 mph electric bike.
