Congrats!

Really love the idea!

Please keep us informed on how it ages.

I really want to know if the batteries last as long as they promise.

so which one did you buy?  So if you go travelling, how big is the charger that you need to take along?

Koop mens hom in 'n box om self aan mekaar te sit?
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

17 in front and I bought it a a titled bike and took front wheel and handlebars off to reduce crate size. This one is a ZF 9  range  is a bit shorter but still oik for town and work.....takes a simple computer /kettle plug to plug into bike from the 220...will take more pics and post
charger is built in and there is "charger boosters" available to reduce charge time..... but still learning everything....

Super cool! I like the idea.
What is it like riding it? Similar to a 500? Or a 650 or 800?
What does the licence cost? Now that you are not paying fuel levies I assume 3rd party and all road taxes will be added to the licence.
Keep it coming.
Look for a shooting star and see Lynda's trail and remember all the great places you shared with her,she will never forget what she shared with you and will show you that in every starry night .

Congrats on the new machine, may you have many years of pleasure. At today's prices what will the replacement batteries cost?
