    People on life support should have generators.

    Power black outs were widely publicized, he should have had a back up.

    The state won't allow the NFS to do controlled burns or clear dead standing timber. They wanted the forests "au natural".
    They got "au natural" alright! It's called "Forest Fire Ashes"!)

Unfortunately, our State WMA's consider them motorized and don't allow them behind the gates. You can get an adequate one for about $2500
    Bummer dude! LOL!
    Oh well. Nice thought anyway!

    No jimbo, this wasn't a Harley. This was a full sized mountain bike with the big, fat tires. Highway speed was advertised at "19 mph".
    The battery was long and skinny and clipped into a compartment that attached to the upright between the seat and the pedals.
    I really didn't pay that much attention to the ad. It was a "pop up" I kept deleting.
    When I remembered pighunters bicycle hunting rig, I thought about the bike!
    I don't even know how the thing accelerated or stopped.

    It was an electric mountain bike. They say the NFS is ok with the electric (battery powered) bikes in the back country. Who knows, old fat cripples in the back woods!

    When EV's were first talked about I thought they would have exchange batteries like how you can exchange propane tanks. Cars could have 2 or 3 standardized battery platform that could be exchanged for fully charged one at existing gas stations. A fork lift could remove the low slung platform and insert the new one from the side of the vehicle. Therefore a EV could travel anywhere exchanges are available. Station would then put the battery platform on charge ready for the next EV. Unfortunately the auto makers did not standardize.
    A Tesla goes about 280miles. How do they heat the car in cold climates ?
    Me electric is .05 per kwh so elec might sense for me. Also, I see several malls that have charging stations to top off the charge.
