For those that have one...what are your recommendations?

Gonna purchase one in coming months for turkey hunting and bowhunting. I rode one and I can see where they will be very handy for an older coon like me...as I still like to get further in than most folks...and I prefer to do it quietly.

My buddies have Rambo's , only complaint from them is to spend more and get 1 with better suspension, they have lower end models . But they still cost 2,500$ the price on these ebikes are retarded.

I bought an M2S and have been very pleased with it. It also comes with all the accessories like rack and lights and fenders that the others sell as add ons,

I have a Himway fat tire. It goes off road pretty good. The only complaint I have is hauling it around. It will require a special bike rack. Make sure you check your local laws about where you can ride it also. Most of them have 750 watt motors, because that is usually the breaking point between motorized and nonmotorized. The size of the battery is also important. My Himway can hit 50 miles on a charge which seems like a lot till you realize that can be done in an afternoon really easily.

Those M2S bikes seem to be best bang for the $$.

I don't think I should have to license my electric trolling motor either.

If you have to license an electric bike in Nebraska to use on public and private property then u should move to another state...

Exactly, that way you can sneak past those GW's. grin grin

I know squat about them but some Amish around here have them and I can't believe how fast they go, they flat out get it!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I picked up a Himiway big dog. Kinda a mix between a scooter and a bike. Plenty of power until a really steep incline, then a little peddle gets it right up. Can carry 400 lbs and upto 80 miles. Cons thus far is the kick stand though great doesnt handle the 3-4 rocks on motor trails well, ride can be a little rough and i have bottomed out the shocks a few times. And like mentioned before there heavy (80lbs) and needs a special bike rack. Ended up getting a one-up extra heavy duty. I prefer the step though for working as you can mount and dismount fast with a load on the back. Helps with opening gates and other stops.

If anyone has a great glove to use, im all ears. Its been a nice mid 20s in the morning. Snowmobile glove maybe?
