    Why do people keep perpetuating this “zero emmisions” bullshit? How will the batteries be charged? By albino unicorns that crap out rainbow colored skittles? I certainly wish the companies nothing but sucess but I really wish they’d knock of the AlGorebasms at at least call them very low emmisions, or near zero emmisions, but not just zero emmissions. That is patently false. People that buy into that nonsense are people that still believe the government is here to help.

    How soon before the MOCO releases a Screamin Eagle Bike Wash made with water from the Ganges? Use it to cleanse your bike and free your soul of sins.
