Thanks very much for asking.

I waited a year before swinging a club so I just started golfing again last month. I wanted to make sure that my rib cage was all knitted together rather than risking dislodging something in there. It didn't improve my game though!

Furthermore, I've been riding my Volt Bike Yukon 750 electric fat bike since Christmas that gives me daily cardio workouts - when I so choose. It is really easy to use the Pedal Assist feature if I get lazy, ha! Similarly I finally got my wonderful new Yamaha T-Max 530 motorcycle running again after a year lay off & have been enjoying our fabulous riding weather on VR Island this spring.


So, all in all, things are going very well. It is quite amazing what our medical folks are doing these days to keep old pharts like me upright & mobile for a little longer...

That is really good to hear. I hope it's a great summer on the island.

This is awesome news TAM. So now you get to ride your motorcycle to the golf course on Vancouver Island. I am not sure it gets much better! Fantastic news!

I rode down to Qualicum Beach yesterday(about an hour each way along the beach) & had an excellent hot dog there right on the beautiful waterfront there. Nice sunny weather so far this spring.

Yup. Life is really pretty good...

Congrats Tam glad your doing better. Those E bikes look like so much fun, plus they haul. Here on the mainland I see people riding from say SFU to UBC in like 40 mins, would take longer on the bus or even rush hour traffic.

I ride a 29er quite often and there's no way I can keep up with an E bike. They just fly past and they're barely pedaling.

Since we are quite hilly here in the Comox Valley, there is no way that I would even attempt riding here without a Pedal Assist electric drive. I often see many people pushing/walking their bikes up the hills here.

My VoltBike fat bike will hit 30+ Km/Hr at the 500 Watt setting (Canadian rules); however, at the 750 Watt setting (US rules), it will do over 40 Kph. For the type of riding that I do, I leave it at 500 Watts that is more than adequate, plus it saves the battery. I've never come close to draining down the battery even after a couple of hours of riding because I probably use Pedal Assist only about half of the time.

Great fun plus it is good for the heart...

The 750W setting is handy when you strap on your M22s and twin 800s. smile

I've seen some videos on the youtube of guys in the U.K. adding more battery power to their E bikes. One was some ridiculous 90kmh or maybe higher.{Death wish guy} Supposedly if the law finds out of such mods.they've got really hefty fines.

People probably realised 30 to 40KMH is already dangerous enough on a bicycle. As to why it isn't in the news so much now.
