I agree. Ebikes are here to stay. It is kind of like the jet-ski problem of 20 years ago. The difference is that Ebikes are quiet, economical, and environmentally friendly; making them more attractive to the political powers that be. Jet-skis are still viewed Negatively by many, yet are still around, popular, expensive, and not necessarily eco-friendly.
There will always be idiots to make things worse for others. Ebiking is no different. Ebikes still have a lot going for them. The positives far outweigh the negatives.
