Additional FeaturesInside the tank shell is all my electronics. I have a quick
connector that goes out to a terminal strip so I can measure
all cells and balance if needed. I tried a BMS but it was a
real pain. I suggest not using one and just get a good charger and don't run too low. Check your balance once a month. You'll be fine.
I enjoy the bike a lot. It is very useful for small and even
medium trips. With the side bags I can even get all my
groceries. I can keep up with hiway traffic when I need to. My longer range plan is to build a trailer and pull a generator for long trips (like a Chev Volt).
