Thanks!
We had a 12 hour ride home with the bikes in an open trailer. It may have fallen off there but who knows. It can be seen here on the front fender of the bright green KLX:

You are welcome to come check out mine before you pull the trigger. I'll be keeping it for another year or so--when your grandson learns to ride a bicycle, bring him here for a test-ride.

Does anyone have a PM group list they send out when a Georgia DS Ride is announced?

If so, put me on the list - I only have ~840 miles on my machine but I am anxious to get lots more.

Thanks

I actually setup a page called "Dan's Shorcuts" that I have a few local friends on, but we haven't done much with it.

Post up what part of Georgia you live in and that will help others know what rides are close.

Actually ordered him a push bike yesterday and as soon as it looks like he is holding his own on it, I'll probably still end up with a PW50 simply because of the low initial cost and ease of resale. If it were easier to find used {400-600$ range} then I just might be swayed. It is cool that the electric bike could easily be ridden where a bicycle could but I live in a spot that has plenty of room for a kid on a PW.

But out of curiousity, what's the run time on the smaller one and how long does it take to reharge? Also, what's the batty replacement cost? Like I said, you really have me curious on these things.

Run time depends on where the parental control "governor" is set: 2-6 hours. Recharge 3-4 hours in a pinch, but overnight recommended.

Stock batteries are $50ish x 2, but they have poor clip-type connections that are a weakness. So when my stock batteries wore out, I replaced them with standard 12v deep cycle batteries a buddy had lying around.

I saw a PW50 on ATL Craigslist about an hour ago. Sorry, didn't look to see the price or if there were any pics.

Went by ACME today, Nice guy there spoon'd on some new Heidenau's and sold me some tasty 950 Parts... Thanks Andrew..

My wife (LeighAnn) and I hauled ass up 515 to 68, went by Tellico Motorcycle Outfitters and got her some new gloves, visited with MiniMike, then we hit Rafter Rd, Citico Creek, (water is HIGH)...jumped back on Cherohala Up...then back down, and off some side roads..Just got home.

Damn, I love this bike...and the new tires...windscreen..oh and my Wonderful Wife...I know tomorrow is back to the SaltMine, but damn it was a GREAT DAY.

Only Pic I took..

Why not just start a new thread here? If you subscribe to it and set email notifications for "instant" you'll get updated when anyone posts something new...at least if you log on now and then.

Of course FB will work, but that's just another place to have to check regularly...fine if you're an active user, but many aren't.

Just my $0.02...

I'm thinking a Sunday ride is in the works...seeing as I'm not a mother...

Cheers,

email list

if any of you guys want to start an informal email list for local/GA based rides, let me know. I run a list for a group of more road racing/hooligan riders (there are a few of the members running around these parts as well) and wouldn't mind setting one up for everyone. I used to run it off my own hosting account, but moved it to micapeak a few years ago. I can start it the same way and if it gets going I can always move it somewhere else as well..

not to take anything away from the forum, I like being able to post reports, see the sections I want to see, etc. etc. but sometimes an email is a little more direct and maybe a better way to organize a ride (or post a link to the thread on here)...

anyway if there's interest, PM me and I can set it up in an hour or two.
