To paraphrase the iconic Spice Girls, if you wanna understand the motorcycle basics, you gotta get with Ryan F9. The good-natured Canadian folks at FortNine have been putting together some of the most interesting and well-produced motorcycling videos for beginners, experts, and everyone in between for quite some time now.

The same, it seems, can be said of many of its competitors. After almost two decades of electric cars, there’s a boom in electric motorcycles of all shapes and sizes. There are neighborhood commuter bikes, backwoods bikes,
