flag PHeller (Nov 28, 2021 at 17:54) It’s not totally unwarranted.. The Bowhead is what amounts to an electric go kart. It does not require any effort on behalf of the rider. If it utilized a two-stroke motor it would be a smaller off-road version of the Crossbow. If you’ve never seen one (and their typical rider), you’d think it was an electric atv. What it does do however is allow someone who is mobility disabled to access places and trails no ATV or UTV or GoKart could ever really go. It’s as close to being a bike as someone who has no use of their legs can get. While I’m not particularly concerned about non-disabled people using these to lazily rip their local trails, the only thing keeping the public from doing that are the fact that the Bowhead products are stupid expensive, and because people generally don’t abuse handicap status…usually. When a group of 50 Bowhead riders shows up at a local unmotorized trail system, I wouldn’t want to be the one to clarify that the group is in fact all paralyzed. As it is, these things are so rare it doesn’t much matter. [Reply] 6 3 flag blowmyfuse (Nov 29, 2021 at 6:03) @PHeller: There was an adaptive MTB clinic at Dupont State Forest several weeks ago. I was glad they didn't have a Bowhead there. It's a land conservation, as are most of the forests in this area. The Bowhead is just as you said, an aggressive (or if want to use less hurtful wording) "capable" go-cart. There was a gentleman at the demo/clinic on a 3 wheeled pedal bike. He had zero use of his legs and was pedaling a 3 wheeled mountain bike. It was still something of a disturbance to the other users (including other disabled cyclists using non-battery assisted pedal trikes) because it had an electric motor attached to the hand pedals and he literally zipped past the other riders and hikers. It didn't mesh with the pace of others. It was big, cumbersome and wouldn't fit on singletrack trails, so seemed more of a gravel/doubletrack toy. With that constraint in mind, my question is "Where is the technological cut-off/stopping point for handicap "vehicles", because they aren't bicycles or tricycles so that it does not interfere with the primary purpose of conserving natural places?" If a 3 wheeled go-cart is granted access, how long before natural places are permanently impacted in a negative manner? We need quiet places, places that are truly realxing to get to on foot or bicycle but still have to limit how impactful we are. Going to your local city park and riding a bike is still a pretty stress filled venture for a pedestrian. I ride, but my family doesn't. None of them appreciate getting buzzed by bicycles and they like to get out in the silence. Will we draw a line at where these 1 man UTV's can go? Will we be guilted into widening most every single access point and trail corridor and if not be labeled evil until we fold under the pressure to accommodate everyone for everything everywhere? Again...I'm not out west. Speaking from the perspective of an overused, pressured and compacted eco-system on the Beast Coast. Not hating.
