Gio-bike: Update, Harley is home and DS is fine!

Ok, never again! “Harley” our friendly little Gio-bike is home from the Gio Doctor, and my hair is 20% grayer. DS (age 22yrs) drove him home down hwy 2, and we lost sight of him in traffic. Between B-ville and Oshawa, traffic goes 80 kph. We circled around looking for him, he was gone! I was freakin, hey I’m his mom right! Well we gave up and headed home, stopping at Timmies of course. We got back on the road and about 6 blocks from home there was Ben running out of juice and putting along at a slow walk, almost out of juice… question answered can he take it to school, ya but he will have to walk back lol.

FYI: Examine your bike carefully when purchasing!

  • Harley had a problem with is pedals, they were falling off. I understand this is a common problem with this bike. The dealer after a load of song and dance tapped the pedals to the place they attached on the bike, and screwed them on. (It is illegal to ride bike here without them)
  • The smaller kickstand was also not positioned so it could be used, it tipped the bike off-balance. They bent it out more, now it is fine.
  • The fork stand was difficult to use, they have oiled the spring, don’t know it I can use it I was not strong enough before oiling. DH and DS can.
  • I read the literature available on the web, and once the battery gets into the red zone it takes 4 hours to recharge (initial charge is around 12 hrs) this depends on how cold it is outside.
  • Cold weather can also reduce distance per charge by as much as 20%
