By the way, I downloaded the Vado user's manual to check out some details. Is is true that the headlight on your bike cannot be turned off? I'm not really a fan of that, as in the daytime on a trail or MUP, I actually find headlights on oncoming bikes to be a bit annoying, especially when some of them are really bright.

My wife's Trek e-bike came with an always-on headlight, but there was a dealer-accessible setting to allow it to be turned off and on from the controller. She never rides on streets or at night so just leaves it off.
