One similar to this is seen very often running the edge of the sidewalk free streets and along the edge of highway four. I will try to get a picture of the one here if you are interested. The owner claims 10 to 15 miles of use on the average day.

The owners carry this unit on the rack unit that is plugged into the 2" receiver of his toad. They use the toad for longer day trips and then the trike when they get to wherever they were headed.


Thanks, Moose!
Iím interested in the trike dual scooter. Really like that one. Canít find one yet.

We will get our walker/sitter gizmos when we settle down in October next month.

There is also this one. It probably would be of interest to those who would like a longer range and use on possibly more rugged terrain. Has a small generator to recharge the batteries on the fly.



These First and only hybrid 1 and 2 person electric
vehicle will never run out of battery. You have your
hybrid generator powered charger with you. It's a 4
cycle quiet generator. You can stop at any gas station
and top up the tank with just regular gas. No more
worries about how far you can go on your electric scooter.
Plus, you will have a Portable Gas Generator that can run
your fridge, lights and/or TV when there's a power outage.

I guess you havenít bought any lumber lately, Carl. If you can find what you need, the price is often close to twice the price of just a year ago. Same holds true for most things at Home Depot. Ouch!

With the home project going on here, believe me, I am aware of all construction prices. That doesn't include bicycles so that's where I was surprised...

I can’t read the text on the signs. Uh, maybe our alternative communication would be the best place to post those words. From looking at the left white card I can only imagine the language used.

We did already, you was gone, your fridge empty and we left.
You may want to use a plunger on that front BR .

I use an iPad so there is no difference if I click with a right finger or a left. But Dennis called me and told me what it said. That sign editor did a great job! I agree!

When I tried to send this message I got an error notice that said my message was too short and I needed to add three more characters. OK letís say, Dennis, Dave, Tim,Ö

"Further south, one major concern is that temperatures across Texas are expected to dive over the next few weeks. It remains to be seen if The Lone Star has rid itself of grid troubles. "



Looks like a certain Texan who grooves on tutu's and rainbow tails got home just in time.



Wonder who that could be ??
