thanks Andrew, that's excellent.
the plan is to ride up the hills and quietly [no engine running] ride back down them.
2 stroke is also a good route, simpler and more angle resistant [no oil pan]. can always upgrade to higher 2s quality motor later.
there is also the possibility of towing a small trailer.
