CC, I've been intreigued (sp) by those battery powered bikes too. I'm sure it's really cool to ride almost silently, especially through the woods. You'll definitely be seeing a ton of animals that you've never seen before. (Watch out for the deer!) Be sure and give us a ride report "after" you've lived with it a while, and have had a chance to find out what's "not so good" about it. I'd be concerned about running out of juice. "Excuse me. Can you give me a jump, all the way home?" ) Good luck with it & have fun!
