Urban Living on 2 Wheels – The Motoped

I Could Get Used To This

The Beach Cruiser that wants to be an Urban Cruiser

The Beach Cruiser that wants to be an Urban Cruiser

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.”
