E-Bike no DL insurance or Registration?
I really do want an EV. [ Electric Vehicle ][car]
Remember that monthly car payments will not even phase you.
Why? Simple; you are not paying $300 per month for gas so your budget remains about the same.
[E-Bike]Amazing, but true. In B.C. Canada, where I live, [Vancouver Island], you can buy an E-bike, [looks like a motorcycle], new for only $900 to $1300, but aside from no gas to buy get this:
 An E-Bike does not require a driver*s license.
 An E-Bike does not require registration.
 An E-Bike does not require INSURANCE.

This miracle of economy may be due to government wanting to encourage a move away from gas dependency and air pollution.
Check your state or province regulations to see if an E-Bike could save you a bundle of green backs.
The world is weird. E-Bikes are sold through our local computer dealer.
With no gas, no oil, and few moving parts, EVs are virtually maintenance free so there is not much service work for a bike shop to look forward to. Maybe that*s why they don*t sell E-Bikes.
Service work pays their $90 shop hour rate after all.
I couldn*t believe all this good stuff until October 11th/06 when I read all these facts in our sydicated local paper.
The new 2007 models are even more comfortable to ride, have a longer range and new features like motor lock-out and wireless remote security alarm.
The Canadian version comes with a big maple leaf on the front. Optional is a suspension feature making the E-Bike ride more like a motorcycle. Takes the rough stuff better.
Improved high torque motors and batteries allows 50 miles between recharging. [plugs in at home or work]. Many Box stores have pugins for senior*s electric EVs.
A re-charge will add a featherweight 6 cents to your hydro bill. If you get caught out of charge, you can pedal it like a normal bike.
