    Hello everybody:
    I realize that this forum is devoted mostly to the interests of engine-power, but I do see that there is also a place here for electric-motor folks. So I do hope that I will be welcome here and that I will be of some help to them. Please understand: I got nothing against gas engines. I ride a Harley.
    My name is Henry and I am the editor of Electric Bicycles Magazine, an on-line publication devoted to E-bike enthusiasts.

    I'm looking at making the electric bike section bigger with more categories. So yeah you're definitely welcome here!

    Welcome to the forum. There probably will come a day when all power assisted bicycles will be eBikes.

    BTW, just checked the mag and wondering if that's your editorial: A Motorcycle by Any Other Name?
    If so, you and I are on the same page, regardless of the source of stored energy we use.

    Is Still a Motorcycle

    Welcome to the forum. There are states where gas assisted bikes are illegal. so we will always have a place for the trons here. A lot of people live in housing where gas engines are not practical. Use the type of propulsion that best fits your situation and interests.

    The courteous thing might be to just say welcome and let a member have his own introduction thread. There are plenty of other threads available to argue one's personal preferences.

    Hi Henry111 -

    Welcome and do join us. A few electric riders post their experiences. Somebody like me will have electric vehicles for local commuting in the next few years. An electric trike with two live axles in back; a 750 watt motor on each. Carrying capability for batteries to last 30 miles at 20 mph. Maybe you and co-contributors will have the right ideas for guys like me.....
