On my way to work the other morning a huge black bear came out of nowhere and I slowed from over 55 to somewhere around 35 or 40. He turned on a dime and was running side by side for a couple seconds as I passed. He had to be well over 400 pounds. Pheww! Was I was ever grateful for the 5 star rating because it would have been a sad disaster for us both. My new #1 item on the wish list for the Gen 3 volt is an air conditioned seat. I was sweating bullets for the next few miles. It would have broke my heart to hurt either of these magnificent beasts.
