I'm still thinking long and hard about EV conversions, and at the current time, I can only really think that, while I'd love to do one, there aren't too many places within 50 miles round-trip that I go to, ever.

That said, I'm personally looking into an electric motorcycle, more for kicks than anything, but also to "get around" in when I don't feel like going for a walk, but would just love to Joyride up to Wally World and loiter for awhile.

I may more than likely build an EV trike as my first though, since I can carry two people in it, it's more stable, lighter than a 4-wheeled vehicle, and can still have _some_ cargo area.
