I would consider a battery trials bike though.

yea, the 2013 are sposedly a LOT better than the older ones.
that said, rode ~10 miles, and was less than 10% discharged, so by that math, should be good....
some highway speeds, some goofing off, etc.... for commuting, I really only need ~50 miles, (30 to work, plug in at work and use their power too... )
With 100 mile, I'd probably NOT plug in at home..
