Mostly I am doing this as I like to ride my bike, but sadly age has done a number to my knees and long enjoyable rides are hard on me now. I want it just to cruise and enjoy the ride as my need to go fast days are well behind me (near 200 mph in a drag car that threw a drive shaft scared me enough
lol). for one night, be well be safe, but most importantly have fun!
Drag racing is a dangerous sport, bummer you got hurt but I can relate, I haven't treated my body to well these last 43 years on Monday so I find simple and easy the best.
Look into electrics.
A flick of the switch and it goes with no pedaling and you can tuck the whole thing in even in the smallest cavity with a little effort but some planing.
They are expensive but like you I can't go pedal myself around especially in 115F Phoenix heat when the wife has the car.
