not so bad

Where I live, here in New Mexico, we have a lot of motorcycles. I'm quite the enthusiast and frankly, here anyway, most drivers are quite courteous. I try to be a really good example to automobile drivers and do my part as a courteous driver anyway. I'm happier still to finally see more electric cycles getting on the road. We're building one that is designed for speeds over 100mph. Living here a 45 or 60 mile range is not really all that practical. It's 20 miles to town from where I live. Even living in Abq. you can burn up 45 miles real fast. Most that I've seen have been scooters around the university. With battery technology getting so much better, a couple I've seen have a 75mile range and a decent speed of 60mph. There are some amazingly well built home electrics that look great and have decent speed and range. Having a quick charge time is a big benefit for anyone. I carry a camera with me more now to try and get pictures of some of the ones I've seen. A lot more electric cars too. I do like the one from the link posted in this thread. First really nice looking commercial one I've seen in a while!

Sweet. Now, deliver to the UK at proper conversion rates.. 5,683 and it would sell faster than they could make them!

(Looks good, is better for environment, Perfect bike for people riding into London everyday, and free road tax to boot)
