Once upon a time we a class of vehicle called "mopeds" - motor assisted pedal vehicles. This is the space these high powered electric bikes belong: on the road in the space between high speed cyclists and 70kph capable scooters.

Nor do they belong on Freeways, which points to a (another) large hole in the Australian way of designing main roads
