Only problem I have is that I am limited to about 6 miles before I have to head home for a charge. I figure with a gas bike I could ride until I run out of gas. I'm not that concerned with speed. 18-20 miles per hour on my Currie is fine. I just want extended range and the power to climb hills. I'm not as young as I used to be either.
Okay. I hear you on the distance. My commute is only a 4 mile r/t and I usually have plenty left for running errands around our small town. All the shopping is within 1/2 mile from home. Yeah, I know I could walk and get the excercise, but I like flaunting my "alternative" ride.

I guess, for me, the electric is plenty enough for my needs. My DAX bike is going to be for cruising with the boyz on their island runs.

I still keep my Dayang 4 stroke scooter for rainy days.
