it basically boil down to a moped experience i had

(the guy took the speed limiter off and it could go 60+)

i floored it up the hill and could barely hit 30

(and thus holding up traffic)

my hill is like this, but a mile or so
1 lane up, 1 lane down
with driveways on both sides, so you might have to stop
some people drive 25, some drive 40

not really worried about the newer EVs

but they are out of my price range

i was referring to the older ones

Past Present Future?
