    Just wanted to pop in and offer a big thanks up to Steve. Buddy, that was a lovely time. Thanks.

    Great getting reacquainted with old friends and making some new ones; it was a nice break in the midst of weird times for me.

    Had to leave early because this was showing up late on Friday and I didn't want it sitting out on the front porch.

    It's a folding electric bike. RadMini; $1499; 20MPH throttle and pedal assist; 25-45 miles range depending on terrain and how much you pedal. It's a fucking hoot!

    Here it is folded up in Putt.

    I was just his sidekick.

    I think his stats especially regarding the aforementioned data would be quite impressive.

    Exactly Ron.

    My wife asked me what the fastest route to MT is. I told her her that was irrelevant on a bike.
