I didn't really want white, and even considered buying a dead red one just to swap panels. But the white has grown on me over the years. I just wash it in the Spring and again in August, and try to avoid rain and mud.

Speaking of which, folks: you can find these bikes with the original, terribly designed (they kill themselves no matter what you do) NiMH packs for almost nothing, and add the Leaf modules yourselves.

Will have to check out Johnny's. I have a love/hate relationship with Valentino's: they frequently mess up our order, but then we eat the food and all is forgiven!
