RE: Whant to see some real moped sites?

Heh

Im really getting sick of this Jan person..

Is his/her life really so empty, that they have to come to this one to post and harass us poor dumb amerikans (to use the swedish spelling).

I guess Swiss people have no friends, nor a life.

Im gonna ride my non-moped now.

Cuz its a puch, its not a REAL moped

What a moped is and a bit of info

You obviusly don't know what a moped is the way people see it. I can see you have a good knowledge of Spanish bikes, (Rieju, Derbi, etc...), and they might be mopeds legally (in Sweden you seem to get them, and in the rest of Europe. But the people in this site talk about mopeds because they like the looks etc...

To keep it short, don't go on blaberring about great 50cc bikes, because what is understood by moped in this site is Tomos, etc...

Here you can have some info on R.E.A.L. mopeds:

What does someone living in Switzerland (more than 2000km away from Sweden)have to do with this?

Jan, what kind of fool are you? You go around the forum making an idiot of your self, so before you embarass yourself any more, why don't you get your facts straight. By definition a moped is a vehicle with no more than 3 wheels, engine capacity < 50cc, automatic transmition, and no more than 1.5 brake H.P. There for those "real mopeds" you are talking about are motorcycles on account of their standard transmitions, and more then 1.5 horses. Hope I set the record strait.

Why is Jan such a dumbass ?

Well said, Jon. The moped scene is much different in Europe, so don't try and tell us we don't know anything about mopeds. In most states and provinces mopeds require pedals. Do you see pedals on the rieju ? Didn't think so. You should've thought about that before you came on this forum and tried to "teach" us about mopeds. And if puch, tomos and other kinds of mopeds are such crap, why are people still driving them around after 20+ years of operation ? Shouldn't they have fallen apart by now ? Get your facts straight before you try and tell people that they don't know anything, because you just make an ass of yourself.

Goooooooooooooaaaaaaaalll...!!!

For Sergi !.....Yeah... Switzerland and Sweden are not the same...... Neither are Australia and Austria!!

RE: Why is Jan such a dumbass ?

RE: Whant to see some real moped sites?

did anyone off you (think we know all about mopeds) actually visited these sites?

as i said..nice pics of (what i thinkt is a real moped) mopeds....

RE: Whant to see some real moped sites?

OK, now I'm not sure who Jan is, or if he was deliberatly flaming the forum or just trying to give some different information. If you read what he said, he only said that the site would have some good info, even if you didn't understand it (because it was in Swedish) and that they were "real" mopeds (since many people think non-pedal 50cc bikes are not mopeds). That's all. I visited the site and, not being a Swedish-reader, didn't find the sites very useful. But it was a well-designed site nonetheless.

But we also ALL have to keep in mind that mopeds are not very clearly defined. Technically, I agree that a moped is a hybrid between a motorcycle and a bicycle. Hence MO (motor) PED (pedals). By convention, they seem to be less than 50cc. Again, though, is a Tomos with a 70cc kit still a moped? I think perhaps it is. It has a motor and pedals.

Also, the horsepower is not necessary indicative. Nor are the gears. I think we could have a manual transmittion multi-horsepower bike with a motor and pedals and it would be moped. This would be for two AND three wheeled varieties. Now, I'm not sure about these Swedish four-wheeled mopeds. If they have pedals ... then perhaps, but it sounds more like a go-cart.

The issue of pedals, however, raises an interesting disctinction between a TECHNICAL moped and a LEGAL moped. In Michigan (USA), for example, a scooter is considered a legal moped as long as it has less than 50cc. These have no pedals and are kick-start. The same also goes, however, for many newer Tomos or Aprilla and other brands that no longer have pedals but are still less than 50cc. Are those mopeds? What about something like, say, a Bridgestone with 50cc, kickstart, and manual transmition? I think that might be a legal moped even if not a technical moped.

So we have to be very careful about what a moped is (and is not). Especially on an internet forum where many people from various countries participate. The thing is, in the US, most mopeds are still of the older variety. Import of new models dried up and so we are left with scooters and 1970s-80s mopeds. In Europe, mopeds seem to have evolved into non-pedal bikes that even have oil injection (no premixing). So there you go.

I personally like pedals myself. If worse comes to worse you can pedal your bike home. And sometimes a pedal moped is MUCH easier to start than a very fast kickstart, such as a Bridgestone (sorry Dan).

My point is ... let's all take a deep breath. Relax. Mopeds are VERY fun. So are other 50cc vehicles. I had/have a scooter and I enjoyed it very much. I don't feel guilty saying this. And I'm sure Dan enjoys his 4.2 hp Bridgestone very much as well. There's nothing at all wrong with that either.

But to spend time arguing about what IS and IS NOT a moped is rather silly, in my opinion at least. Let's just ride and have a great time swarming the streets. Happy riding everyone!

RE: Whant to see some real moped sites? (4 Miguel)

jan,

we call that four wheeled "moped" a four wheeler here in the states, it most definately isn't a moped. i accept just about anything that is remotely close aas being mopeds, but that is just to far.

RE: Whant to see some real moped sites? (4 Jan)

Are lawnmowers considered mopeds in Sweden ? Sounds like anything with a small engine is considered a moped in Sweden. I can't wait to hear Jan's reply, I'm sure it will have something to do with me being a stupid amerikan ( I'm actually Canadian ) and how I know nothing about mopeds because I don't think a four wheeler is a moped.

More 4 Wheel mopeds

That buggy might technically be a moped and you can drive it with a moped licence, but here we are talking about typical mopeds (Puch, Tomos, etc...). There are however, 50cc cars that are considered mopeds (at least in Spain), so you can drive it when you are 14. They are very fun to drive, but it isn't really a moped (no pedals).

RE: More 4 Wheel mopeds

Does all mopeds i america need to have pedals? Are the eny mopeds that dont have pedals?
