Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

How did this thread devolve into a bunch of boomers whining about bird scooters.

Where’s the wait list for a Bye Bike?

A question and answer in one .

Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

definitely much more dangerous to drive today when the auto fatalities are less than 1/4 what they were 50 yr ago

Seems like the single speed bikes in the last couple long distance races didn't fair to well, compared to the DV and 2-speed bikes.

I guess the people on the podium didn't win because they weren't riding single speeds.

Most likely because the auto 'inhabitants' are much more protected than they were 50 years ago ( seat belts and air bags in every nook and cranny ) . ;)(edited)

Don't forget Northstar and cell phones for quick and timely responses to emergencies

Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

*onstar

Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

Lol, Northstars cause emergencys. Fucking convoluted engine.

Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

Northstars are funny engines. They had some neat features, albeit most of them failed or didn’t work properly but it’s the engineered thought that counts right guys?? Like that limp home mode where the engine would deliver fuel to one cylinder bank at a time, allowing the opposing bank to “air cool”, and you to run 100 miles without a drop of coolant doing zero damage to your engine.... or liquid cooling alternators so they last longer.... because despite what you may have heard- water and electricity are super secret lovers!

Re: Can we mass produce mopeds again?

Didn't know about the liquid cooled alternator, what I know is that almost every one I have encountered has suffered head gasket failure, and they don't seem to go back together well. Will never own one.
