Electric vehicle concepts are always limited by batteries with low energy and power density. Someone should fix that (one idea).

These bikes are getting better all the time. I'd love to have one to ride around the neighborhood.

And it's super cool that they can also be ridden on the street!

This definitely seems to be better thought out than other models. I hope they figure out a way to increase speed and running time to make it more practical for day to day use.

This is excellent! I love horsepower and the smell of Nitro as much as body but this has great potential. I hope that they succeed and that this is the beginning of the future of transportation that is accessible to the average citizen.

Congratulations for my American friends for the new president. I hope things are going to improve. Hard to believe he could screw up worse than the one before.

However I can't get my head over the fact that 47% voted for the incumbent party candidate. If in Europe an administration would so totally and absolutely fail in every meaningful respect, people would not vote for them any more. 47%?

Because McCain isn't Bush? Because the party that's led us down this road really doesn't matter whether or not they have an "R" or a "D" next to their name and title? Because you really don't understand American Politics? (Think the worst, most-awful incident of inhumanity and indecency you've ever witnessed, then square it - that's American Politics)

US troops killed under Republican Presidents since 1900 = ~6000.

US troops killed under Democrat Presidents since 1900 = ~460000.

Yep. Things are gonna change. Looks like you idiots will have to fight off Putin, Kim, Chavez, etc by yourselves.

No that's not true. I think we Europeans take the bisquit for the worst inhumanities and indecencies. When you start showing people into the ovens as a national policy you know there's something wrong somewhere.
