Talking about E-Bike touring and how one can do it, in the touring forum is a positive for sure, and talking about motors isn't but it also needs to be addressed for people to know at what level the assist is at. Why? Because at some point assistance does become doing and you are now definitely riding a moped... Problem is at what level? Some people say zero, I go with the European standard, because it's low enough to not be able, to propel the bike by itself efficiently enough so one has to pedal, and no throttle... The American standard is WWAAaayy to high even in my book to be associated to touring in a bike touring forum. JMO
