I'm Green

I had a birthday at the end of March - I turned the 'new 40' My family bought me a great present. Every middle aged man's (or am I really a senior now?) dream. Check out the picture above.

A Harley? A Vespa?

Will I head out to the open road and look for Marlon Brando and the Wild Ones?

Not likely.

However, I am now officially green.

The machine you see above is an electric bike. Yes, electric, with a battery pack and everything.

No noise, no emissions - no speed either - but still serviceable and fun.

It won't be the open road but it will be back and forth to Starbucks and the University.
