went to Publix, instead of using the far away bike rack, i parked a few feet from the door on the sidewalk. locked the wheel. it still has the sla, so at 82# it would be hard to drag away
so there was enough room in the "trunk" i fit 2 half gallons of ice cream and eggs, next to the battery.
hung fresh corn from the seat posts.
and to my surprise the city patched 3 bumpy sections on the bike path!.
took 9 minutes to get there, 10 min in the store and 10 to get home.
Will do this more often! oh, and a lady in a car there said she liked my bike! and my neighbor said she liked the trunk, since she has complained she can't carry much home on her bike.
before this ride, i rotated the throttle so full speed requires no wrist twist, the lever is now in the perfect cruise position. Impossible to get a tired hand, in fact, cruising along i wasn't even aware that i was controlling the throttle. Yet when i saw a bump and wanted to slow, i instantly backed off without any thinking.
