    Welcome aboard, Joe.

    Nothing wrong with electric bikes. But keep an open mind to the charms of an internal combustion engine.

    They're quirky, but loveable.

    Hey bluegoatwoods... Unfortunately here in the closest metro area to Phila. a gas engine will get you plenty of unwanted attention from uniformed public servants...Got over my motorcycle period many years ago, a little more subtle these days.

    Now that you mention it, I've gotten over my motorcycle period as well. That happened some time ago.

    Still, whether electric or IC, these are a very different breed of cat. No doubt you'll enjoy it.

    And electric does have the advantage of being a lot more subtle than gasoline.
