    How long do the batteries last?
    How much do new batteries cost?
    Exactly where do I dispose of the batteries?
    How green was is the factory that made the batteries?
    Exactly what third world company assembles the batteries?

    Come on, Red, don't keep us in suspense...what's your sixth question???

    BTW...how "near" to Northfield do you live? I have relatives that live near the Dundas area, south of Northfield.

    #6 Why buy green when I have BMW?

    The green bike is cool and would love to test it someday even with the faults..I just hate the mis use of the term green like the MIS use of the catch phrase of organic!

    Dundas and Northfield are just a spit from me, I'm about 4-5 miles from both. Just east and south of Dundas. Hows America's only Republic holding up with the rains and such? My guess parrts of TX are wet like a drowned rat, and others like Corpus Cristi, Houston are dry like an ol white bone, correct?

    Actually, most of TX got hit hard, except the dry west part. Houston's always wet...I try to avoid flights through Houston because you never know when a storm will pop up. With the rains leaving us (now up in Oklahoma it appears), we're left in the sauna...we're going to pay for it now!!

    I know that area somewhat well...an uncle had a farm near the road to Faribault...Hwy 3, right? A few cousins still live in and around the area. Another cousin really liked the Airhead BMW design and almost bought an '89 R100GS but I think shied away from the cost and the potential problems with the u-joints. Instead he bought himself a V-Strom. I think he now lives over in St. Peter.

    Yeah, and it kinda foils the whole loud pipes debate, unless there is an after market MP3 player integrated with a faux muffler of megaphone stickin' out its arse.

    Where does the power to charge the batteries come from? This applies to electric cars too.
