..the last few bikes I've built did plenty when twisting the right grip Razz Not sure how else you can control the throttle on a 2 stroke motor Very Happy

Lol... TBH I hadn't thought that far it just amused me to consider the arbitrary delineation between motorcycle and bicycle.

Quote:
A bicycle, also called a cycle or bike, is a human-powered or motor-powered, pedal-driven, single-track vehicle, having two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. A bicycle rider is called a cyclist, or bicyclist.


...from wikipedia (so it must be accurate!)

So I guess you could define the difference between bicycle and motorcycle solely on pedals (if you consider mopeds as a convenient legal term rather than an actual "thing")

"Cycling" a series of events that are regularly repeated in the same order."

I read the subtitle and had this mental picture of a grizzled old biker sitting on a push bike for the first time and pawing at the throttle uselessly Very Happy
