Conceptually it makes a lot of sense, it solves the whole CVT problem/question plus you could dial in as much power as you want with instant torque. The 2 questions are obviously batteries/range and weight. I suppose you could just stop and plug into a power tree when eating lunch.

If I remember correctly, the batteries were about 60 pounds. With unlimited funds one could have a Sherpa on a sled pack batteries around for you.

Damn. I still want one though. My next plan is a cabin in the middle of the goods with multiple stark Vargs. At least one bike on the charger all the time.
I also dream about a massive yacht with room for three helicopters, and about 20 of my best friends. Maybe a 60 person crew catering to us? Post up somewhere off the coast of Alaska for a few months each year. Ski **** like we used to ski!

Snow is melting quickly here right now and I am getting a bit depressed.
