I've been tinkering with the idea of doing an EV conversion, but I'm held back at the moment by the absence of a suitable charging outlet in the area where I park my car at night. (And, of course, the lack of a garage in which to perform said conversion.)

My problem isn't locomotion, it's the fact that the roads up here simply aren't conducive to cycling. My morning commute is mostly along a rough, narrow 2-lane road with no shoulders which is packed with suburban SUV-and-pickup owners.

It's not like riding in the city where you can weave your way through (and be faster than) the car traffic, or out west where they have bike lanes; up here the infrastructure simply doesn't support cycling.





Besides, I hate two-cycle engines with a burning passion.

That... is both terrifying and arousing at the same time.

Ironically, that is in fact that exact thing that she did say.
