    The only motorcycle I still own requires kick starting, but then again, we have already established that I'm not an overweight pussy... so there is that...

    On the one hand, I don't understand the load social media uproar by some MTB purists about E-bikes on trails. However, as the line continues to blur between motorcycles and mountain bikes as performance and endurance increases with ebikes, the tension and concerns are likely to escalate and increase before they die down. At what point do we say that this is just an electric motorcycle with pedals?

    Just got back from a beautiful colorful ride in North Ogden, and I had my first negative encounter with an older fella. And of course the GoPro was rolling, so this video will be funny.

    I found the dude on Strava, so tonight was just one bonus after another.

    I'm currently thinking up the title to the video, something like "Old Man complains about Ebike"

    Looking forward to it.
    I got passed by two e-bikes yesterday evening up AF on one of the really long grind climbs. They were going so fast it made me feel like a slug. Of course I've been at sea level for basically the last week so I was pedaling like a slug, haha. Looking at strava, they did that mile and a half climb in 6 minutes when my PR is just under 14. They actually passed me later on after they went out and back on another trail. I didn't mind that they were on e-bikes at all. They covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time. More power to 'em.
    Are we there yet?

    I hope they at least greeted you. Although, I greeted this guy last night, asked him how he's doing, and then also said it's a great day to ride with these beautiful colors. Not even a "Yes it's nice out" or anything, he went straight for the "you shouldn't be on that with a motor", then he went on mumbling something else as he rode away, I replied "yes it's AWESOME", and he shouted something like "Ebikes suck", to which I replied "don't be whining now".

    Anyways, that was my first negative encounter, and I'm waiting to see if he'll go online talking about how bad he was attacked by a guy on an ebike, so I can calmly correct the record.

    Whatever our preferences are, kindness helps.

    Nope. Looked like a couple of early twenty year olds and just hollered something unintelligible, which I took to mean "get out of our way".

    That's unfortunate. Yeah there will always be those punks that put a strain on the public relations, just like drone pilots.

    There's always those people no matter the mode of travel. I'm not perfect but, I do say "thank you" when someone pulls over to let me pass.
