Well, I've decided not to get an electric bike at this time. Maybe in a couple of years. I want to thank those that answered my (sometimes stupid) questions. I really like the Zero DSR -- that would be my choice. I have three motorcycles still, and I don't want to part with any one of them . . . just yet. I thought I would sell one, then I would have space for another bike. But I like the three bikes too much to sell . . . for now. But things change and possibly I shall return -- to bother you guys with more questions.
