On my best days, I can typically do the entire loop in 45 mins. riding my lightest smoker out here.
It's still a struggle, I ain't gonna lie...

Well, 1st ride out here on my new shoes,
I shaved 5 mins off my best time around that nasty 6 mi loop...w/o any drama,

Those front forks look fancy .
Congrats Dao. Welcome. Lots of battery and controller upgrades out there once you get used to it and want to go on longer rides.
Great way to ride in the summer heat.

That sounds like it requires less effort and would benefit an older rider. Correct?

Exactly the thought. Safety, fun and different riding style. Win, win. Cheaper than a dirt bike too.

Yea, this thing's a game changer with summer heat.... riding EL in 95=100F w/
no more exhaust heat, coolant puking out,radiator heat cooking your thighs.
i'm liking this two power modes. in low I can do some trials stuff on it, in high, it's a main loop killer.

So Vinny, can you do the entire ns, ss, and rt at HF on the stock battery?

Do you think one of these is good for a newbie offroader? Never done any technical riding, was looking into a 350 as a start, but these are much cheaper.

Good way to learn but if you get one you won't get a gas bike.

I was reading through some of the threads (broken forks, broken axles) and I started wondering if these things are junky or just getting the snot beat out of them by some young 20 something punks. :lol2:

That goes for any bike that is abused. Think of it as a mountain bike .

Since I'm always at full throttle it'll only last the 17 miles of South loop before it needs a recharge.
Can recharge at an RV spot or with a generator.
At Emma it's hardly ever at full throttle so it last 3 loops.

Battery expansion would be good for us...or maybe a spare battery.
