Uh oh...
You took a train? Why are you posting on a bicycle touring forum instead of interrail or similiar. By many definitions presented here (including yours) you're not bicycle touring at all.

Usually the law is pretty good at defining things. In this case in the EU if it falls within the definition of an e-assist bike it is considered a bicycle and not a motorbike. All other arguments are...

What can the E-assist option bring for bicycle touring.

We liked latvia so much we took a ship out of there as soon as we could. The roads are the worst we have ever seen anywhere and honestly I'd rather ride mtb trails than latvian roads.
