or shall I say Rene' did. Today after a few laughs watching "The Other Guys" we went bike shopping. Guess what? While I would have been quite happy with a run of the mill bike, I am happy to report that I am the owner of an e-Zip.
While it is not a Vespa, it will move along at about 15 miles an hour. Best of all, until I get throttling up and down and the rhythm of shifting gears, pedal power will make it go just fine. The battery has a 20 mile range if I am using it only to assist on hills rather than using it to tool along so when the weather gets a little less hot I can see myself venturing further afield. Hmmm, I wonder if I can get a battery operated GPS for the e-Zip.
And yes, I brought a helmet. Will take it for a spin around the shopping center parking lot in the morning before it fills up with cars and it gets too hot. Will let you know how it went and if I have need of band aids or plaster casts :)
