Some had talked about off roading use and couldn't remember if anyone had tried it out but this shows some of the issues you may run into and features you want to look for.

I charged mine once with a Honda 2000W, took 1.5 gal. of gas in effect yielding 60 m.p.g. I was curious what the "gas mileage" would be with genny charging. Not too shabby!

This is actually not bad, as ideas go. I mean, if you're going to go out camping/long rides, it seems fairly valid; though it might be questionable how much further you'd get NOT having a giant generator strapped to the bike.

As far as the ICE bikers go, claiming superiority in that respect, I'm pretty sure I've seen more than one or two wandering out in the bush with an extra tank of gas on their ride...
