    Here's a prototype of another version, from the factory. So, at least they are thinking about the idea.

    I much prefer the 2nd rendition. I guess i will never quite get it though. Trying to make a bike with that lump look light is not going to happen.

    this thread has me kind of questioning whether this might be better 40th present to myself than a wing.

    I just saw an ad for $4k off remaining ‘17 Motus models.

    I'm feeling pretty good, after all that. I'm not yet at full strength and endurance, but it's improving gradually.
    I have the New England Winter Fitness Program coming to help me with that (shoveling, roof raking, etc.).
