YAY!!!

Let's buy a $10K bike that can only go 40 miles and barely go down the highway.

The dirt version might be interesting, but a 4 hour charge time and extreme price put me off.

I'll buy a madura.

"The Zero DS is designed for motorcyclists who want the freedom to ride wherever they want"

Do these people even consider what they are saying? Hello. I can already go wherever I want and at least 5 times as far and I don't have to wait 4 hours to refill the gas tank.

"....and I don't have to wait 4 hours to refill the gas tank."

After Obamlama's first term you may not be able to say that.

Freedom in 50 minute intervals. Cool.

Like all Zero models, the DS has an aircraft grade aluminum frame to minimize its weight.
What separates "Aircraft-Grade" aluminium from say, cooking-foil or beercan-grade aluminium?

I know the answer, and it has nothing to do with alloy-composition...........

Yikes! I won't even have a gas tank! I'll be in a Flexy Flyer with a fan on back and a long extension cord. So will you.
