    it might be ridiculous.. but.. I'll take one.

    I usually burn $300 a week driving my f-250 around for work.. I'd take my bike more but I always having to pick up supplies for my jobs...

    I could put my work tools in there.. go do a few quotes for jobs,, pick up epoxy/paint supplies for the crew.. and get 50 mpg... think I could have one paid off in a few months..

    Cargo trikes, tuk-tuks, or what ever you wish to call them are an extremely practical vehicle, and power the transportation needs of much of the world. Considering that the average traffic speeds in many cities is less than 10 mph, how much oomph do you really need? Roads in many parts of the world are not suited for riding at over 30 mph in any case. I'd love to see these in the US. Bajaj tuk-tuks were available for a short time here, and I always kick myself for not getting one.
