Take the battery pack off and hide it in your backpack and they won't know it's not a regular bike.

(But be sure to ride in the middle of the boat so your unpredictable weight doesn't capsize it.)

  Portland area

It's more likely about money. Have a lawyer send them a letter and cc local news.

Right. It is _probably_ about money - somewhere.

Money begets influence begets special favors/illogical policies and laws.

But government weenies (ask me how i know) operate from a slightly different values-paradigm than your average citizen-consumer.

mostly, mostly, a government weenies algorithms are simple: do not be noticed, do not get asked hard questions, and do not, ever, ever, make a judgement call that might get second-guessed.

they have special administrative employee-slingshots to get you under the bus quickly, quietly, and efficiently, should you deviate from the algorithm.

In all fairness, it's a passenger-only fairy, so differences in car weights don't apply. Still, utterly silly.

Just because I can, I just forwarded this information over to the Cascade Bicycle Club. As an added thing, I just might speak with my county commissioner.

maybe they're hiding behind the "give-em-an-inch" fallacy, thinking perhaps that if they let battery bikes on, what's next?

so maybe they drew the line at human-powered: full stop.

at least that is defensible.

but why the bs sketchy marine architecture and hydrodynamics?

reflexive misdirection?
