    Here is a video.

    Did anybody else notice it has two hand brakes, just like Zero's Pikes Peak bike this year. Foot brakes are pointless on an electric.

    I am embarrassed that I called him Ron, when his name is Robert, and we actually corresponded back in the day, on the old recumbent bicycle list.

    I believe them as much as I believe Harley, or VW. Hell, we own a Bolt, and I don't believe GM. I still figure there is about a 50% chance we are driving a rare collectible.

    They are saying it does DC fast charge, so they must be running at least 200 volts for that to work reliably, right?
