Happened to me earlier this week, when I blew by him on my commute; I smiled and said "YES".

I use an ebike on my commute because it saves me an hour per day compared to a regular bike and a hour per day plus fuel compared to driving (traffic is terrible in the Bay Area). On a bike/ebike I get to enjoy 6 miles of uninterrupted bike trail along a creek with assorted wildlife. This morning I saw a huge grey egret.

My time is very valuable to me, more so as I get older. Less commuting time means more time with my wife.
