    Don't be lazy . . . Even a simple tip over at a stop can lead to a head injury. Get in the habit of wearing it all the time and then it's no longer a hassle.

    1.24M in 2010.
    Don't exaggerate to further your agenda. Yes, it's still a tremendous loss which could and should be reduced greatly.

    The step through requirement and slightly compact points to a Yuba Boda Boda. Fair amount of cargo capacity but not a full-on longtail.
