So "Ginger" just got unveiled, and I gotta say it has a LOT in common with...a slinky and a pair of roller skates.<P>YOU ARE A FUCKING GENIUS! PICK ME SOME LOTTERY NUMBERS NOW, PSYCHIC GENIUS MAN!<P>------------------

Gizmos to make it lockable should be doable, and they better be <I><B>good</B></I>, cuz the price/weight ratio for this thing is much lower then for a bike or motorcycle.
And dat's a fac.

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Europe, my friend.<P>Those people are zany.<P>Actually, I'd be a big fan of more enforced "no-car zones" in major urban centres, where you have delivery arteries every couple of streets but no regular car traffic. I think the Ginger people are banking on like-minded people opting for laws regulating the number of cars in cities...or maybe they're just all wac MCs.
