    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Not unlike what my Zero is.

    I have three times the range and three time the recharging time. And three times the top speed.

    Life is good.

    Twice the price.

    But then, I bought it used. New, it would be four times the price.

    Oh...yeah. INFINITELY more comfortable, than a no-suspension pedal-backup mini-bike.

    More comfortable than a lot of enduros. A new neighbor of mine has a mid-1970s Honda dual-sport, and we went out together for a dumb errand. On the way back, his 350 panting, he wanted to experience Zero electricity. I let him ride around the block.

    His comment? Above and beyond the EASE of riding with no clutch or gearbox...was that the Corbin-By-Zero optional SEAT was SO much more comfortable than his own. I'd like to say I confirmed it; but his kickstarter and lack of turn signals....dissuaded me, to say the least.

    I don't think electric cars will make it. But, electric MOTORCYCLES...may very well. They're not only competitive; they're in many ways superior.

    It would be fun to try one someday. I think they have a purpose and have come a long way.
