I Could Get Used To This
Helmets are no longer mandatory in Michigan. There are clearly two sides of this development – I hesitate to call it an Issue – because many people who have never ridden a motorized 2 wheeler should not really be making or influencing laws regulating the activity. That is like a man saying he knows how to give birth.
Enter: The Motoped. It’s not a Moped. It’s a motorized bicycle. They are about 1 year old in production and come in kit form (currently) but I foresee a bigger market in areas where you don’t have to shovel snow more than 5 months annually.
This is not an advertisement. I just happen to appreciate practicality.
I prefer calling the model pictured as a classic urban cruiser, myself. The rear mono-shock and large tires will make those potholes in Grand Rapids a lot easier to “stomach.”
