Electric bike`s.

If i run low on unleaded, i`ll pull into a garage and 2 min`s later i`m back on my way. Just out of interest if this bike run`s low on charge, How long would it take to be back mobile again?.

Electric Bikes..

I can see a use for electic bikes in the future but we are still some way off with the battery technology. Give me around 150bhp and a 100 mile minimum range and I'll start making room in the garage...now which one should I sell first..........
